Become a Nunnery Gallery Patron | be part of east London's community

About the Nunnery Gallery
The Nunnery Gallery is educational art charity Bow Arts Trust’s not-for-profit, free and contemporary art space. It has been providing challenging and significant art exhibitions in east London for over 18 years from its unique former nineteenth-century convent setting, surrounded by over 100 artists’ studios.
Bringing to the fore pioneering exhibitions of often-neglected artists who have played a huge part in east London’s art history – including Madge Gill and the East London Group – to showcasing contemporary art at its most fresh and provoking, the Gallery programme aims to realise artists’ visions and provide opportunities for emerging artists. Exhibitions such as Visions in the Nunnery and the Bow Open Show have exhibited artists including Ori Gersht, Susan Hiller, Mikhail Karikis, Uriel Orlow, Mariele Neudecker and Mathew Weir.

Become a Nunnery Gallery Patron
Patron support enables the Nunnery Gallery to continue and expand its aspirations, providing vital funding, as well as a network to safeguard the future of the Gallery in an ever-evolving east London.

Being a patron is a chance to join an original network of people who have a shared passion for art in the innovative and teeming artists’ capital of east London.
