Vera Wade Gallery...
The industrial style metal staircase off Ann Street leads you to the lower level of the church which is level with Creek Street. As you enter the gallery space, the impressive high ceiling made of glass tiles allows light to flood the space. Formidable Romanesque-style pillars support elegant archways which span the width of the walkway. These architectural features combine with modern heavy metal beams infusing the atmosphere with both modern and old. It is a calm and welcoming atmosphere.
Why the Vera Wade Gallery in Saint Andrew's Uniting Church?
Therefore, the church promotes emerging and established artists, supports the creative endeavors of marginalized community groups and offers a space for spiritually inspired artworks.
