GO ARt Galleries In North London

Art Galleries in North London Whatever your opinions on art you will probably, at some point, feel the urge to see the world from a new perspective and visiting one of north London’s art galleries is one way to do it.

In a Georgian building on Canonbury Square in north London you will find a unique artistic offering – the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art [map]. This is the only museum in the country to focus on Italian art of the 20th century, and is renowned for its collection of Futurist work. Just a short walk from Highbury & Islington tube station, this is a great art gallery to explore the themes of modern art.

For contemporary art from a more diverse range of countries try the Art Space Gallery [map]. Founded in 1986 this gallery continues to show a variety of contemporary work by fledgling artists and those with their feet firmly on the art ladder.

Making a very good claim to being the area’s home of the arts is the Islington Arts Factory [map]. As North London's premier art centre it is a focal point for visual arts in the area so as well as traditional art you'll also find dance and music here. The Arts Factory's three galleries house a range of visual art forms, including sculpture and photography by professional artists. However the centre is not only where you can view art, but also where you can unleash your own creative talents at one of the classes for example life drawing.

For more in Islington, you could take in a showcase of the functional arts at the Crafts Council [map]. Textiles, jewellery and much more are all featured in various exhibitions throughout the year. And as well visiting the gallery, you can also get involved yourself with their range of activities suitable for people of all ages.

And while some lucratively transform London’s Victorian buildings into places for people to live, the Victoria Miro Gallery [map] was converted into a home for creative expression and is one of the best art spaces in the capital. Established in 1985, the Victoria Miro Gallery has become one of London's notable contemporary art galleries and work shown here has launched the careers of several contemporary artists, including Turner Prize winners, and celebrated artists from around the world.
