Chappell Contemporary is a modern art Gallery in Whitstable Kent.
The gallery was established in 2015 by Paula Chappell.
Paula studied Sculpture at Wimbledon School of art. Her love of creating art lead her through different paths, but one thing that always intrigued her was curating artwork,
"One thing I always found difficult in art school was the lack of information given to students on how they can show their work, post art school. We leave with such high expectitions of being in shows and awesome galleries, but no one tells us how to get there, how to approach galleries and how to show our work? It was at this point a year after art school that my passion for curation, events and sourcing exciting artist began."
Opening my own space allowed me the freedom to explore new work and build relationships with artists that I had long admired.
It has also given me the opportunity to showcase brand new talent and help artists begin their exciting journey.
"I hand pick all of the work in the gallery and I only source work I love and I only work with artists I respect and admire, thats the joy of being your own boss, you only have to work with people you like! "
The gallery has an exciting, fun vibe. We understand that galleries can be intimidating enviroments, but we hope Chappell Contemporary isnt one of those galleries.
