Gallery 57 is part of a Grade 2 listed, Georgian house in bustling Tarrant Street, Arundel, where owner and practicing artist, Ann Symes, lives. Historically it has been a shop but now provides a light, spacious, area in which to display contemporary art and craft by emerging and established artists.
Ann's studio is at the back of the house where she often works when the gallery is open. Sometimes, when convenient, she shares her studio space to work and talk with another artist.
Exhibitions have a theme and work is selected accordingly so that it relates, sits well together and creates a calm space. This is what visitors to gallery notice immediately and often express appreciation of how well the shows are curated. The character of the gallery makes it easier to imagine artworks in a home environment.
Gallery 57 is welcoming and you can spend as much time as you like browsing, asking questions, looking at art books or meeting your friends in its calm, inviting space.
