Our vision

Chapter House Lane is a non-profit organisation that is rent-free and commission-free for artists. The gallery is managed by a professional volunteer committee who are dedicated to providing a unique platform to showcase contemporary art, while offering artists curatorial, event and communications support free of charge.

Chapter House Lane aims to foster the work of predominantly unrepresented emerging and mid-career contemporary artists by putting their work in the public eye. If you enjoy what we do, there are a number of ways you can help: Make a donation; sponsor; or volunteer.
