Gabriel Fine Arts are happy to announce the grand opening of their new East London Gallery space.

For those who do not already know us Gabriel Fine Arts is a London based gallery and artist community promoting internationalism and diversity both with our artists and the work that they create. We believe art unifies us all, no matter where you come from or who you are.

We have always been London-centric as the city reflects our multicultural values. We've recently exhibited all over; Notting Hill, Greenwich, Battersea, Old Street and frequently at our previous space in Waterloo. However we are once again putting down our roots, and this time our epicenter will be in Canary Wharf. Here we hope to bring more art and colour to the City of London itself.

Based only a 10 minute walk from Canary Wharf station the new gallery space is situated on the Isle of Dogs, surrounded by the rich culture and history of London's infamous Docklands. This area has historically always been culturally fluctuating, as it's imminence to the docks and the shipping trade meant that it had constant waves of new people coming and going. The area acted as the gateway to London for people coming from afar and was the point of welcome for them. We're hoping to renew this gateway by maintaining the stream of new art and culture through the Docklands and into London.

The phrase 'The Isle of Dogs' was first used by Henry VIII in 1520. However the area was largely marshland and was not urbanised until the early 19th Century, with the construction of the East and West India Docks. From this point on it became a bustling centre for trade particularly with sugar, flour and ship building. However these trades have been and gone and the area has become the heart of business in London and one of the financial centres of the world.

The opening exhibition, INTERSECTION (9th September-1st October) represents this new milestone and the start of new things. An intersection can be seen as a meeting of different directions. The cross-over place where two meet. This new exhibition evokes our very ideals by creating a space for artists and artwork to cross paths and be momentarily united.
