View All  Artists in Residence

Our past residents have enjoyed what we regard as the ideal balance of arts practic and promotion for proliferation in the city and some time without pressure. 

We've witnessed a true galvanising of ideas during residencies, where the open door policy for Artists and visitors has laid the path for some excellent work, as well as relationships for life.

With a team comprised of artists, we've enjoyed building a functional platform for  graduate level contemporaries. With walls and floor painted, we are proud to offer a blank canvas to start the year and one we feel ideal for cultivating new work in a busy market environment.  

We hope you'll visit No. 269 to enjoy a variety of contemporary art in relative sanctuary, as well as the ever changing procession of people that pass our window amongst the market's finest. 

By prior request, AIR ( Artists in Residence) are available for private viewings and gallery tours from Thursday to Sunday 12:00 - 18:00. Please contact: for enquiries.

AIR will also be selling original pieces of current and previous work from their open studios throughout their time.

We follow a strict 'Organic Marketing' policy. All mailing lists used during visiting shows are requested for our future artists benefit, unless from a private hire customer. Unlike ships of old, our vessel remains afloat through 'Word of mouth', we therefore rely on our visitors to fly the flag where possible.
