The Hannah Barry Gallery first found a home in the emerging Copeland Cultural Quarter in central Peckham in November 2007. The iconic historic [[Bussey Building]], home to almost a hundred artists and small businesses, hosted a seated dinner for 115 guests to celebrate a year of exhibitions at 78 Lyndhurst Way and to thank the many people who had helped and encouraged the artists in their work. Inspired by the unusual conditions at 78 Lyndhurst Way, with its ten rooms and garden, the programme of monthly exhibitions at the house had exhibited monograph bodies of work within a group show. The subject of each show was chosen to encourage progress and experimentation to help young artists develop their ideas in reference to our time. The Hannah Barry Gallery was founded to continue and progress this kind of work. The first exhibition held in the Copeland Cultural Quarter (CCQ) was in Feburary February 2008, in the Bussey building. The Gallery moved to its current permanent space in a warehouse next to the Bussey building within the CCQ after that. For the last four summers - 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 - the Gallery has held a very successful outdoor large sculpture exhibition on the top three floors of the multi storey car park on the other side of the railway tracks running alongside the Bussey building and Copeland site. This has been accompanied by the highly successful pop up Frank's Cafe. In 2011 there was also a straw bale auditorium with a summer long series of events and performances; see here for the [ 5 x 15 event].

Now, add up-and-coming artists: in easy reach of some of the capital’s leading art schools, the area’s low prices and vast, empty industrial spaces are attracting experimental avant-garde collectives, studios and galleries — a countercultural challenge to the established North-of-the-river world of the Frieze art fair and the gentrified East End.“Peckham is the land of the free. It’s like a blank canvas,” said Hannah Barry, an enterprising 26-year-old who founded her eponymous gallery last year in a warehouse of a former cricket bat factory.

(September 2009)=== The summer with Frank’s Café & Campari Bar with its fabulous views from central Peckham came to an end on 26th September 2009. Let’s hope the huge success encourages Frank to start a permanent café in Peckham.
