St Peter's - Notting Hill

Open Prayerful Relevant

About the Gallery

upstairs glass columns 2The Curate Art Space is a contemporary art space in the heart of Notting Hill within St Peter`s church. The space is unique in that it is in the centre of a thriving community and is surrounded by existing architectural and artistic features. It is hoped that artists showing in the gallery will take inspiration from this juxtaposition of classically influenced Victorian architecture with modern renovations and facilities. The space is also ideally suited for creative industry events and product launches. Any profits payable to the church will go to fund its continuing good work in the local community. If you are interested in displaying your artwork, please email Rebecca Dean at Curate Events.

Fisherman Poster


David Critchley's installation, Articles of Faith, captures snapshots of our journey from birth through life and on to death.  It draws on the participation of the St Peter's congregation in representing moments of faith and of fear through items of personal significance. Critchley is known for his collaboration on the work "Cradle to Grave', in the permanent collection at the British Museum.    

Gail Dooley's ceramics explore the ideas of faith, fear and freedom in the natural world. A major example of her work with birds was the piece 'Albatross', first shown in 2007. Biddy Partridge, a professional photographer in Southern Africa for much of her life, has turned to painting for this exhibition.  Her painted prayers and 'problem of beauty' photographs point to the endless process of confronting fear through faith.
