SCAM! Once you have paid (quite a lot of money to get a tiny space for ten days), they put a couple of posts on facebook/twitter and, according to them, a few websites/mailing lists, which you don’t have access to. The SCAM is after the preview: they claim their gallery staff is trained to promote your artworks on site, distribute flyers, business cards, etc. and possibly sell. Sadly the reality is that once they have taken your money, they are not motivated to even say hello to visitors and potential buyers, let alone to sell your art. The atmosphere is very unwelcoming and the funny part (!) is that the artists are paying for that! I have reported the Brick Lane Gallery to the Trading Standards for poor service. AVOID AVOID AVOID!
I have walked past here many times - and the art is always substandard and often overpriced for what it is
In fact it makes little effort to actually function as a real gallery in my opinion
Very high rates to exhibit artworks that won't be promoted to the public or reach any visibility. 'Vanity galleries' - as they are named - have no interest in the work displayed as they have their money ahead of time. There is absolutely no incentive for them to sell and in fact they don't. Not recommended.

My granddaughter is about to choose her options at school, she has found it difficult through the years academicly. I thought she would never settle or focus on anyone thing. She has chosen art and drama as GCSE , with the hope of moving on to performing arts. We visited brick lane as her art teacher thought she should start visiting some galleries.it was near by to home interesting and a good starting point for young afults. I would recomend a visit as was most enjoyable.
