The Anchor Gallery

Where: 232 Moseley Street, Digbeth, B5 6LG
Opening times: Monday-Friday, 8:30-14:30

Anchor Gallery has been established by British artist and musician Rachel Mayfield [pictured right], with the aim of representing artists and writers connected to Birmingham.

The gallery launched earlier this year with Show Me Your Birmingham, a group exhibition of 35 different artists. Rachel has responded to the exhibition with I’ll Show You My Birmingham – a short feature film accompanied by music, which she has recently performed live on London’s Resonance FM and at the Bond Company on Fazeley Street.

The gallery is currently exhibiting mixed media works within Buddy’s 232 Cafe on Moseley Street, but at the end of November, will be expanding and moving to larger premises at Muthers Studio on Rea Street South. The move to Muthers will enable the gallery to be open seven days a week, along with providing a bar to serve drinks and more rooms for arts events.

A number of solo exhibitions have been confirmed for the Anchor Gallery’s first winter season, including:

  • Nigel Dodds and Adrian Clamp, until 27th October
    Buddy’s, 232 Moseley Street, B5 6LG | Open 08:30-14:30 Mon-Fri

    Nigel and Adrian present their own contemporary figurative art.

  • Darryl Georgiou, from Tuesday 1st to Wednesday 30th November
    Buddy’s, 232 Moseley Street, B5 6LG | Open 08:30-14:30 Mon-Fri
