More about the Gallery & Exhibition
This gallery was founded by an emigré Russian artist in Whitechapel in 1915 so that Jewish immigrant artists would have a venue for exhibiting. The remit has been extended to cover exhibiting and researching art by the refugee and immigrant community and the benefits of art to benefit mental health.

The current exhibition “Sheer Verve: The Women’s International Art Club” shows work including paintings by Sonia Delaunay, Clara Klinghoffer, Orovida Pissarro, Ottilie Tolansky and Laura Knight. The group was founded in Paris in 1898 to give female artists a platform until it was dissolved in 1978.

The gallery also has works by Frank Auerbach, David Bomberg, Marc Chagall, Jacob Epstein, Mark Gertler, George Grosz and Chaim Soutine.

The gallery is at 108A Boundary Road, off Abbey Road, St John’s Wood NW8 0RH

The gallery requests a £10 donation to visit their exhibitions by visitors who can afford it.
