Brickhouse is a short-living gallery which has had previous incarnations starting from the basement of a house in Bloomsbury followed by a one-night show by Liam Fogerty at Limoncello Gallery. Incarnation 3 was hosted by Edel Assanti and the last project was at the New Gallery, Peckham which consisted of 7 one-week shows. The gallery aims to give artists a space to produce fast and spontaneous solo shows. Brickhouse is conceived by artist and curator Guy Gormley and designer Thomas Bush. Incarnation 5, supported by Mark Darbyshire, is the first project outside London. Darbyshire Frame makers have been sponsoring annually curated group exhibitions hosted by SVA since 2007. Proprietor Mark Darbyshire has worked closely with the London art world over the last twenty years, and so his passion for young dynamic artists' ideas has become a means of fostering the presentation of challenging artwork in his home town of Stroud.
