Venue DescriptionMall Galleries hosts a diverse programme of exhibitions and events, and is home to the Federation of British Artists. The Federation of British Artists, a visual arts charity established in 1961. The Federation (FBA) comprises nine of the UK’s leading art societies, specialising in oil, portrait, marine, wildlife, watercolour, pastel, printmaking and sculpture. Each holds their annual exhibition at Mall Galleries. A unique national resource, the FBA has over 600 practising artists and is home to the largest life drawing society in London (Hesketh Hubbard Art Society). Each year we host a busy, diverse and exciting programme of exhibitions, including work by emerging as well as well-known established artists. Many of our exhibitions focus on contemporary representational art, each of them offering paintings, sculpture, prints or drawings for sale at affordable prices. We also play host to many of the UK’s leading open art competitions, as well as other temporary exhibitions of contemporary sculpture, photography and the visual arts. We love to welcome visitors who love contemporary art. The Federation receives no on-going public funding and is entirely reliant for its income on sponsorship, subscriptions from Friends and Patrons, Exhibitions and Events and sales commissions. The work we sell benefits artists and visitors alike; our successful Commissions Service helps people find the ideal artist to commission a special work of art. Mall Galleries also has a popular Bookshop and café. The charity places great importance on its educational activities. These involve reaching out to diverse age groups and communities from London and around the UK.
There are small ramps to allow for access up the two shallow steps into the gallery entrance. Inside there is a platform lift to take you down the stairs into the gallery space. The gallery is then mostly on one level, with a ramp up into the last gallery space. A manual wheelchair can be provided for visitors with mobility difficulties. There are benches and chairs available in the gallery spaces for those less able to stand.
The gallery has step free toilets, with wide doors that accommodate both manual and electric wheelchairs. There are grab rails in the cubical and easy turn taps.
Our staff are friendly and willing to help, just let them know what they can do to assist you.
