Public consultation event on Spring Gardens Art Gallery
3pm to 7.30pm Wednesday 25th May 2011 Vauxhall City Farm
You are invited to view the plans for a new art gallery in Spring Gardens. The public consultation will take place at City Farm from 3pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday 25 May.
The small building development is the initiative of Charles Asprey, philanthropist and arts patron, and the Cabinet Gallery. Having founded the Gallery in Brixton during the early nineties and spending the last decade in Clerkenwell, the proprietors Martin McGeown and Andrew Wheatley will be returning to Lambeth and the historic site of Vauxhall’s Pleasure Gardens.
The plot for the building is on Tyers Street, where the Lord Clyde pub once stood. Landscaping and planting around the proposed building will enhance the northwest corner of the park providing a notable landmark for years to come.
A close working relationship with the Friends of Spring Gardens has ensured that the building forms part of the on-going improvements to the park and has been designed aesthetically and sensitively, taking in the concerns of other neighbourhood organisations, especially the City Farm.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 25 May.
Yours faithfully, Charles Asprey Andrew Wheatley Martin McGeown
