Ben Oakley Gallery
Greenwich SE10 9JA
The Ben Oakley Gallery is set in the former bakery 'Use your Loaf'. The Gallery opened in April 2011 and is neatly set on Turnpin Lane running alongside Greenwich Market.
The Ben Oakley venture offers new artists the opportunity of space, obtain feedback on their work and build confidence by contributing with nominal commissions. The space is a Georgian building with the original brick wall forming the backdrop for the art on display.
The art sells from £100 to £10.000 and is mainly made up of recycled materials like old doors and windows that form frames, from wall hung pieces to sculptures. As Ben said, “it is an informal space where one can be creative and express oneself”.
