Corridor Gallery was created by Brighton-based makers and Artists to provide exhibition and retail space to support and nurture our City’s vibrant Art scene.
Voted acting director of the cooperative that took it from a market stall to permanently housed gallery space with workshops, talks and private events in Brighton. This section is a brief overview of the feel of the space and some of the exhibitions we housed.
The Gallery space offered a monthly exhibition area with the sole aim to house great Art made in Brighton by a wealth of diverse Artists, Makers and Artisans.Corridor Gallery seeks to promote, showcase and sell a stunning array of original Fine and Contemporary Art produced by Brighton makers – there was no restriction on the style or medium of work Corridor Gallery exhibits so the space transformed each month to reflect the variety, vibrancy and flair found in the unique and fiercely independent City of Brighton with a different exhibition in the front and retail area at the back of the space.
Corridor Gallery was launched in September 2015 by the Arts Co-Operative Diversis Artibus which ran and managed the space, eventually closing New Year's Eve 2016.
Working in a Co-Operative allowed the project to run as a transparent and fair profit enterprise; ensuring the Artists and Makers we support get fair payments for their work and receive free promotion, creative control, support and engagement from the Arts Co-Operative.
I helped with all facets of the gallery from marketing, account management, to day-to-day admin, curation and exhibits, updating the website, marketing, advertising, public relations, stock management and being responsible for social media.
In my time I had the privilege of working with incredible artists and makers including, Ian Miller, Aaron Howdle, Holly Rozier, Eve Shepherd, Justyna Neryng, Emma Clear, Lucy Kenward, Barnaby Simpson and many more. In total we had around 45 artists who displayed work inside the gallery.
