Whitespace gallery, opened in 2004 was home to selected and invited artists from London and the south east.
A well lit, airconditioned space to the rear of Inspirations Contemporary Art, offering monthly renewable space for artists to sell, or experiment with their work, testing out their target customers, allowing them to develop their styles, prices etc. A minimal commission was taken, though exhibiting artists did pay a small contribution towards the running costs.
This set-up proved very successful and it was a great pity that both of the galleries on the Greenwich site had to close due to the landlords plans to build a hotel in time for the 2012 Olympic games. Unfortunately the galleries were closed and the lease passed on by the time the landlord was prevented from developing the site (Greenwich market), but it did help a number of artists move on to bigger and better things as full-time self employed artists.
