GALLERIES JULY 13 continued from page 10 Having left their old premises in Fitzrovia after 17 years or more, this superbly innovative organization is moving into a handsomely refurbished Victorian Renaissance-style warehouse owned by the trendy architects, Allies Morrison, next door. Now, after a delicious snack in Borough Market, onelast push east, beyond TheShard and London Bridge Station to Bermondsey where a transformation even more astonishing again is elevating the only quite recently scruffy, warehouse-y area around Bermondsey Street to unheard of levels of designer chic. White Cube Bermondsey opened here just last year in an old 60s supermarket space but actually looks rather out of placewith its chilly corporateatmosphere alongside the modern terracotta exterior (and interior) of the Fashion & Textile Museum Zandra Rhodes founded 6 years ago just over the road. Plenty else to look at besides these as well – the superb glass, and the accompanying ‘theatricals’ of its making, always on show at London Glassblowing, the brand new gallery space of Eames Fine Art, currently showing Anita Klein’s characterful paintings, just two doors up and, behind a curiously boarded up frontage further down, oneof themost spectacularly atmospheric framing (both traditional and antiquarian) and antique print and map shops I have encountered in a long while. Entitled The Fine Art of Framing, it really is an absolute model of British eccentricity at its very finest. After all that a well-earned drink in the engagingly redeveloped Georgian/super-modern surroundings of nearby Bermondsey Square where there are cafés, bars, a new wood-clad hotel, open-air table tennis – and a British Council sponsored window gallery called Vitrine. Whatever next? NU The Impact School of Art Don't miss the chance to see a wide range of innovative, energetic and imaginative paintings by 250 artists at Impact Art Fair, the only UK art event displaying work by artists who face challenges such as mental ill health, disability or social exclusion.
