Art goes underground

Subway Gallery

You couldn't imagine a gallery like this - even if you tried. The Subway Gallery is more than a little out-of-the-ordinary, and all the better for it.

Due to its unique location, which is actually in an old 1960's subway kiosk underneath Marylebone flyover, the gallery can build on its quirkiness perfectly, and does so by showing a variety of underground art.

Want to get an idea of what they do? Well, just have a look at some of the past exhibitions and you'll see how cleverly they manage the space - with everything from real (as in canvas on wall) exhibitions to such things as private movie showings and even charity shop pop-ups (see the rather excellent Strummerville pop-up - created by the charity set up the Joe Strummer music foundation, and located here thanks to the location of the gallery being in Joe Strummer Subway).

As well as this, the Black Wall has also been utilised as an exhibition space, as well as a some-time homage to the aforementioned lead singer of the Clash.

Should you stumble across the Gallery when it is not open, don't worry - as sometimes the artist who created and runs the gallery - local artist Robert Gordon McHarg - loans out the gallery as a recording, as you can see, an all-round creative space very worthy of your attention - especially if you have a taste for the slightly off-centre...
