Nunnery Gallery

Nunnery Gallery is in a unique building on the ground floor of a former convent, and surrounded by Bow Arts studios. We invite visitors to experience high quality art in an intimate and welcoming setting. Our exhibitions unite the history of our area with new artist commissions providing skills, debate and art for new audiences.

IMPORTANT: 24 August - 31 August Nunnery Gallery will be operating reduced opening hours from 11am-3pm and will be closed at the weekend. Carmelite Cafe will also be closed for the duration of the week, both will open as usual from Tuesday 1 September

Nunnery Gallery is open six days a week (Tuesday - Sunday) from 10am - 5pm.

The Gallery programmes a mixed exhibition programme to appeal to a wide audience with a particular focus on site responsive work and work that explores the history of the local area.

Our 2015 programme is In Dialogue, a year-long exploration of partnerships, artistic inspirations and deeply involved relationships between the artist and the muse featuring work from Pierrick Mouton, Sarah Pucill, Claude Cahun and Mary Barnes.  

This year's programme has been made possible with kind support from our sponsors Images In Frames.

The Nunnery Gallery programme is confirmed until 2017.
