31 Commercial Road - SUSPENDED

As by today, Sunday 21st 2010, we are sorry to announce that we can not exhibit in 31 Commercial Road any more.

The venue got flooded due to a leaking roof that had not been fixed for about a month or so. The water finally went into the floor boards which started to come of and started flowing into the electrics of the cafe's food storage underneath.

We love art too much to have it exposed to such conditions. We are cancelling all scheduled exhibitions from this day on. Artists who have booked with us will be rebursed. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

The venue has been central to NO:ID Gallery and we have had over 33 exhibitions there between June 2009 and November 2010. It has been a central location for artists and art lovers from the East End and from far. It was featured in a TV broadcast, and has brought live to what was a no-go-area.

Exhibiting artists were: Carole Suety, Christina Mitrense, Gavin Weston, Gera Urkom, Geraldine Swayne, Gudrun Sigridur Haraldsdottir, Henry MacKeith, Jan Maat, Jason Gibilaro, Jayne Taylor, Jeannette Petrik, Jonas Ranson, Jura Barikin, Kairo Uza, Kate Kotcheff, Martin Lau, Michael Bucknell, Mr.Aide, Ms L O'Riley, Norbert Tutsek, Pauline Hall, Reinhard Schleinig, Richard Niman, Richard Webb, Stas Borodin, Steve Mallaghan, Steve Price, Steve Rushton, Vladimir Makeev, and many more.

NO:ID Gallery will focus on promotion and continue sending out our e-listing, recommending exhibitions of our artists and similar minded venues, groups and individuals. We are open for new challenges. There is a blank page between two chapers of a book. Please keep in touch - and see you all again...
