Leyden Gallery is a nomadic and unique art gallery that was founded in 2013 on the boundaries of The City of London and Spitalfields. Prior to closing their City of London gallery location in October 2019, Gallery owners Adriana Cerne & Lindsay Moran trail-blazed a series of outstanding national and international exhibitions. Since leaving the gallery space last year, they have focused on the development of a virtual gallery and innovative collaborative projects including continued work with emerging and established artists. Leyden Gallery has built a distinct reputation as a vibrant and forward-thinking gallery, exhibiting work by both new and established artists; with previous shows featuring stellar names such as Paula Rego, Henry Moore, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and Nan Goldin amongst others.
ABOUT THE HOUSE MILL GALLERY
The House Mill Gallery is part of the House Mill, a grade 1 listed 18th century tidal mill set in a beautiful riverside location in the heart of London’s East End. Today, the House Mill Trust delivers a range of activities and events, including heritage tours, concerts and, of course, art exhibitions, hosting world-famous artists such as Bill Viola.
The House Mill is well connected to the city centre, that makes the gallery the perfect location for an art exhibition. The nearest station is Bromley-by-Bow, which is served by the Hammersmith & City and District lines and is a 5-minute walk away.

Juliana Matsumura (Platform #18)
Participating in the Platform for Emerging Arts promoted by Leyden Gallery was a great experience.The exhibition was one of my first professional experiences as a young artist and it was very fruitful and encouraging. I greatly appreciated the feedback I got from the public and fellow artists and all the experience was enriching. The Leyden Gallery team is very professional, responsible and friendly, and I've learned a lot working together with Lindsay and Adriana.
Levin Pfeufer (Platform #20)
Having taken part in the Platform for Emerging Arts #20 I experience a wonderful energised collaboration with Leyden Gallery. Working alongside Leyden we selected the strongest and most coherent pieces from my portfolio, of which half were successful in being sold during the show. We also made a film showcasing the exhibition and surrounding neighbourhood. The knowledge and joy in sharing good informed curation, along with a healthy dose of fine humour is one reason I always enjoyed spending time at Leyden whether I came to look at the art or just have a conversation.
