We descend the contemporary metal stairwell and into the gallery from Ann Street. Daylight pours in from a ceiling of glass tiles nine metres above. Massive Romanesque pillars and elegant archways are juxtaposed seamlessly in this unique gallery space. Viewers are invited to browse at their leisure.
Why A Gallery in our church?
In memory of Vera, the gallery was created during major renovations to Saint Andrew's. It was dedicated on Sunday 17th October 2010.
As a member of the congregation, Vera Wade's vision was for Saint Andrew's to have a functioning art gallery providing a venue for exhibitions of archival material and fine art exhibitions. We promote emerging artists and community groups as well as faith-inspired works.
