Pop Up Shop & Gallery (2014-2017).
65a Sheen Lane was originally set up as a pop-up shop and gallery in 2014 as a platform for exploring a range of uses in a space adaptable in content and occasion.
A smallest of exhibition spaces (measuring just 4 x 5 x 3 m) the central concern when establishing the gallery and pop-up shop was to create an intimate space to present work. Since its inception, there have been more than 20 exhibitions of work. The space opened with an inaugural exhibition of Found Art; an exhibition of art found in a variety of places and not all the information or history is known about these pieces. However, these were wonderful pieces for the wall and expertise of the individual pieces were visible and vibrant. After a programme that lasted for three years, the pop up gallery project closed.
Now as Hayles the gallery is back to its roots, with a slightly extended permanent space, selling an eclectic range of art, ceramics, lighting, a few bits of furniture and really anything ‘found’ that has caught our eye. Welcome.
