VERA WADE GALLERY - Exhibiting Fine Art and Archival Materials

See our friendly volunteer guides in the Saint Andrew's Church foyer to assist you.

Your Experience...

As you descend the contemporary metal stairwell and into the gallery from Ann Street, you enter the gallery. The glass tiled ceiling nine metres above creates a light flooded space displaying the art works beautifully. 
Massive Romanesque pillars and elegant archways sit comfortably with each other in this unique gallery. Viewers are invited to browse at their leisure and enjoy the ambience.

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.
