Rosetta Windows Gallery was a free public gallery that showcased work from emerging and established artists and was a platform for showcasing a range of work and visual arts disciplines.

It faced out onto the historic Rathbone Market in Canning Town and formed part of a wider programme of community engagement workshops, events and projects. A report of the activities that took place can be downloaded from this page.

Previously a vacant retail space that used to be a charity shop, Rosetta Art Centre transformed the venue into a meanwhile use exhibition space for contemporary art as part of the ongoing redevelopment of the Rathbone Market site. As a community-facing gallery, it allows members of the public to interact with the artworks on show without them having to cross a threshold or literally walk in to an art venue.

The gallery was open from July 2011 to November 2012 and was part of the FirstThursday network of east London galleries (the eastern most outpost). Whilst this project has come to an end as the regeneration of Canning Town moves into a new phase, the gallery is seeking a new home and will be looking to hold new exhibitions in the near future.

Rosetta Windows Gallery was supported by John Sisk & Sons and the London Borough of Newham and was part of the TimeOut First Thursdays network.

Changing Perspectives

The Humble Gallery w/ emerging artists presents

‘Changing Perspectives’


To be forever caught up in one’s own mind, thoughts, and prejudices is a restriction that inhibits the free-flow of ideas fundamental to human existence. ‘Changing Perspectives’ – an exhibition that marks the inception of The Humble Gallery – arises in opposition to this restriction as a collection of portraiture which prises the self away from dogmatic assumption by revealing new perspectives of the world we live in.

‘Changing Perspectives’ features works from three talented artists who work locally within Newham. In the visual translation of the associations lingering beneath the surface of vintage dolls, Veronica Rowlands calls for a fantastical regression into that ‘childlike place of innocence’. Alongside Veronica is Hassan Vawda who describes his work as ‘the blueprint of his mind’ and through such a raw expression forces the onlooker to set foot into his world. In contrast, Steve Marriott’s mannequins straddle the liminal position between life and death from where they invoke a realisation of emotions which ‘people can’t necessarily express themselves’.

Through regression, expression, and realisation, this exhibition aims to change the way you think. The private viewing, which will also allow you to buy the artwork, is being held at The Humble Gallery on the 17th March from 5:30pm. The Humble Gallery seeks to support emerging East London talent and help artists develop their professional skills as well as unlock artists’ capacity to earn from their creativity. The gallery is situated at the Rosetta Art Centre, in Stratford, a visual art centre established in 1993 which works to transform lives by providing access to quality visual art education for all ages and abilities.
