For a fine collection of contemporary abstract art set within a 17th Century listed building visit gallery 54, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire.
Gallery 54 is accessible to everyone who enjoys viewing paintings, ceramics and glassware.
The 17th century building has been sympathetically restored ( to revitalise the quality and solidity of its natural building materials ) fusing original features with clean-lined contemporary design.
Gallery 54 provides a space with an understated elegance ( and quirky appeal ) as a frame for contemporary art.
The exhibition space consists of two discrete floors balanced and accessed by an open stairwell gallery. The stairwell creates an open – house ambience and displays artworks in a homely situ.
The garden terrace is in use during the summer months being home to larger sculptures designed for outside viewing.
The strength of
gallery 54 lies in the calibre and integrity of the collected art. The viewing experience is energised by the juxtaposition of old and new; contemporary abstract art backs on to the inherited architecture offsetting modernity with sculptural period charm.
Gallery 54 currently exhibits work from over 20 artists – some garnered from rich local talent, whilst others are national and international artists. Although the works lean towards, or securely belong in the abstract / modern genre, this does not limit their diversity. All the artists share a keen aesthetic sense, absorption in interrelations of space, form and colour and evident joy in the suggestive ambiguity of abstract art.
