Established in 1982 in Birmingham, Halcyon Gallery has played an important part in the UK’s art scene and brought its modern take on the art world to Bond Street in 2006, opening a second branch on the same stretch in 2011. While you’ll find the most famous names in art at the street’s auction houses, Halcyon Gallery champions emerging talents and exciting takes on the concept of art from established names. Don’t let the prestigious address fool you, one of the key beliefs of the gallery is that art is for all, an idea spearheaded by the gallery’s founder and director Paul Green.
Painting and sculpture are represented in this two-floor space and they work with artists from around the globe so there’s always something interesting to discover. Artists are carefully chosen for their intrinsic creativity and aims to give them a space to explore their most innovative ideas as well as providing professional mentorship. They have also given financial support to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award World Fellowship which champions the development of young people and donated works of art to public spaces through the Royal Parks Foundation. The team has extensive experience working with both private collectors and museums to maximise the potential of extraordinary art.
The space at 144-146 New Bond Street is the gallery’s flagship space and sits in a building with a long history for art having been initially opened as a gallery in 1901. It spans an impressive five floors and 12,000 square metres with three entire floors of exhibition space open to all.
