ARTELLITE RELOCATES TO SOMERSET HOUSE | JANUARY 2018
In January 2018, we will be wishing a fond farewell to East London, and it is with great excitement that we announce our new address will be the iconic Somerset House.
In 2003, Isobel Beauchamp and Elinor Olisa founded the pioneering online gallery venture DegreeArt.com, showcasing and selling student and graduate artists artwork, in New Cross, London.
Over the intervening 14 years, the growing business has evolved into Artellite Ltd, representing over 2,000 artists at all stages of their careers. Alongside countless pop-up exhibitions and art fairs across the UK & Europe, the company has occupied: a live/work unit on Fish Island in Hackney, an Edwardian chapel in Bethnal Green and most recently a 1930s factory/ gallery space at 12a Vyner Street. We are thrilled to now be joining the creative community of Somerset House in Central London.
The Neoclassical building situated on the south side of the Strand, overlooking the River Thames, just east of Waterloo Bridge, was designed by Sir William Chambers in 1776, and further extended with Victorian wings to the east and west in 1831 and 1856.
Today Somerset House is home to the largest and most diverse collection of creative organisations, freelancers, artists, makers and thinkers in London hosting a varied calender of exhibitions and events.
Artellite will be welcoming clients for viewings and operating their gallery and websites including, DegreeArt.com, Contemporary Collective and DegreeArt.cn from their Victorian rooms in the ‘New Wing’ so-called as it was the last section of the building to be constructed in the 1850s.
Our neighbours will include 250 organisations from the arts and creative industries: Courtauld Gallery and Institute, King’s College London Cultural Institute, British Fashion Council, and others ranging from advertising, branding, PR agencies and film production, to social enterprise and business support organisations.
The whole team would like to wish you a very happy New Year
and we look forward to welcoming you to visit us at Somerset House soon.
