Sally Lyall Grant revels in the sights and sounds of markets across the world. After recently returning from a trip to India she was inspired to look more closely into the variety of markets throughout London.
In her images Sally captures moments in time, exchanges between sellers and buyers, negotiations and gossip all taking place in market settings. Vibrant colours speak of the liveliness of these scenes.
Living in Kentish Town this is Sally’s first exhibition in London, a self-taught photographer with a keen and discerning eye she has been recognised through a prize for her photography work in an architectural heritage competition in Morocco. She has also had successful exhibitions in Nottingham as well as publishing books on local history.
The New Space Gallery is based within the beating heart of one of London’s oldest standing markets Queens Crescent making Sally’s exhibition a set of work fully in tune with its context.
Emerald Dunne showed her collection of new works at the Free Space Gallery back in January. The Free Space is our older sister, our funky aunty and our caring neighbor. Once they had mentioned her work and we had popped along to have a look we were hooked and knew we needed to show it.
So here we are a few months later, the evenings are lighter and the birds have decided it is time to put in some practice for X Factor and Emerald Dunne and her wonderful Stars and Stems has come to stay for a couple of months.
From March 20th to May 20th you will be able to come in to New Space and be able to transport yourself to the stars, and not in the cramped 500 days with one person eating only dried food kind of way instead we suggest a heavy dose of colour and canvas.
Hope to see you there, put stars in your eyes and keep your feet on the ground.
Thank you to those who came out into the cold evening to see the beautiful etchings and delicate photographs of Catherine Nagle
There is still a chance to come along and see the work before the exhibition ends on March 12th. So pop along Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm (exc Thursday) and relive some childhood memories.

This Sunday I will hoist myself out of bed and make my way to the New Space Gallery to hang the work of artist Catherine Nagle.
The work is split in to two branches, beautiful and sumptuous photographs and etchings which make the most of her skills in creating images that are both simple and layered.
But enough from me listen to the artist herself…And come along to her open evening on Thursday February 28th 6-8pm
I like to use old photographs as a starting point to re-create memories from before I was born. They are my mother’s family snapshots which serve to revisit poignant memories. I use lines to suggest forms and patterns. My drawings are spontaneous and stylised, and not intended to be accurate representations but to be interpretations of childhood thoughts and ideas; free, relaxed and uninhibited by adult cynicism, and serve to remove the restrictions of the original photograph. Some are worked to provide a sense of narrative; others to create intimate portraits.These have been further developed into etchings and photo-etchings.
I enjoy visiting botanical gardens and capturing the flowers, leaves and berries.These botanical photographs were taken by myself in Japan, the Philippines and Bath.
Artist Kirsty Riddell will be showing her collection of work on the theme of eating disorders at the New Space Gallery. We feel that it is important to present such issues in a health context, they refuse to be ignored.
Hope you can make it along to see these images whilst we have our hands on them.
A big and hearty thanks to all those who came along to the opening night of London on the Dial. I really do thank you for coming out in almost monsoon like conditions to congratulate Iranian photographer Pirasteh Gourang on her show of photographs inspired by London.
Here are a few photos to show you how much we appreciated you coming.
Just remember the show will be on until September 10th so plenty of time to come back again for another look or just to have your first peek.
New Space Gallery is pleased to be playing host to a series of photographs on the theme of London. Iranian photographer Pirasteh Gourang takes the viewer on a journey through the streets of London exploring experiences big and small.
The images made during many long walks through the streets of London. What then occurs is something as complex as the city itself, images that are melancholic, desolate, beautiful and sometimes idiosyncratic.
As a backdrop to all of this there will also be refreshments and good company on
THURSDAY 5th JULY 6-9pm
The exhibition will be on till 10th September Mon – Friday 9am – 6pm (exc Thursday)
