Proud Central Gallery

32 John Adam Street


Until 15 April 2010

There's still time to catch this nifty little show, tucked away near London's National Gallery. Like baby stars in a nebula cluster, you can see the starstuff of the art school environment from whence I came... Everyone has developed their work further since I last saw them. Let's just say that the Aber Uni degree show this June promises to be an exciting and innovative event, if this show is anything to go by. 

Directions to Proud Central Gallery

The closest tube station is Charing Cross. But I will begin my directions from the National Gallery, which would be nice to visit before or after Aberration. 

Coming out of the front entrance of the National Gallery, bear left around Trafalgar Square and left again when you come to the Strand at Waterstones bookshop. Keep on the same side of the Strand as Waterstones, pass the entrance to Charing Cross station then turn right and find yourself in a little network of streets. John Adam Street is the first street running parallel to the Strand - turn left onto it, and the Proud Gallery is on the left. (Unless of course, you have carried along the Strand too far - Zimbabwe House is too far - in which case turn right on John Adam Street and look right. The good news is that the street isn't very long, so even I couldn't be wandering around for long.) 

Apparently the post-event partying went on long after I sloped off to late opening at the Tate!
