It’s Red Eight Gallery’s one-year anniversary!

We are beyond thrilled to be celebrating our beloved gallery’s one-year anniversary! Oh, how time flies! 

During this last year, we’ve showcased some of the world’s most exciting emerging contemporary artists, hosted exclusive launch parties, and discovered outstanding new talent from around the world. But above all, we have supported our clients to get the very best out of their art-collecting and investing journey. 

Judging by how well our first year has gone, there is no doubt in our minds that we will see continued growth and evolution for Red Eight Gallery in the years to come. 

With 1000 square feet of recently renovated gallery space, high ceilings, and huge stylish top-floor arched windows, Red Eight Gallery provides a bright, modern and spacious interior that truly serves the art it displays. 

To keep with the “red” colour scheme, we have carpeted the gallery with red carpets along the stairwell and retained the original building fixtures so our clients can feel like the picture of elegance and class as they make their way to the top floor. 

To honour the gallery’s one-year anniversary, we’d like to show our gratitude for our unbeatable location in the Icon of the city, the Royal Exchange. 

The Icon of the city, the Royal Exchange

Red Eight Gallery is located in one of London’s grandest, most iconic buildings, the Royal exchange.

We are very lucky indeed to be located in one of London’s most beautiful buildings in the heart of the city’s financial district –  the Square Mile. The Square Mile is part of the oldest settlement in London, once known by the Romans as ‘Londinium’. When the Romans arrived around 43AD, they developed the area into a grand commercial centre before abandoning it in the 5th century. Over the centuries, the area has retained its commercial influence, shifting only with differing styles and trades. 

The Royal Exchange was established in 1566 by the wealthy merchant Sir Thomas Gresham as London’s first purpose-built centre for trading stocks. It was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth I in 1571 and has since been destroyed twice by fire and subsequently rebuilt. 

The current building, designed by Sir William Tite in the 1840s, is similar to the original layout but includes an eight-column portico inspired by the Pantheon in Rome. The building was officially opened this time by Queen Victoria.
