FRAMING

At Happenstance studios we deliver affordable bespoke framing for artists by artists. Our extensive experience organizing and hanging exhibitions means we know how to give your artwork the presentation it deserves.

We provide a full pre-framing consultation that helps develop the innovative display solutions that will bring out the best in your art, framing to conservation level using exclusively natural wood and acid-free materials. Serving the art community of East London and beyond since 2010.

EXHIBITIONS

Happenstance Gallery is an independent and innovative pop-up gallery (est. 2010) best known for its annual Salon des Refusés exhibition, held in East London and now in it’s fourth year, in which art works rejected from the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition are exhibited in all their glory. Happenstance specialize in engaging art experiences, pioneering visitor interactivity through techniques such as voting on art work and radio broadcasting live interviews with artists and visitors.

Happenstance Gallery works with emerging and established artists in the UK, Eastern and Western Europe, with a particular focus on art that challenges perceptions and perspectives. Recent exhibitions have included street art, spiritual art, photography and word art.
