Picture perfect: Mercers’ Estate welcomes art gallery duo

The Mercers’ Company announced that the UK’s largest art gallery group, Clarendon Fine Art, has selected 117 Long Acre, Covent Garden, for its latest unique gallery experience in the capital.

Capturing the gallery’s mission to make art accessible and enjoyable to all, from first-time buyers to established collectors, the 3,500 sq ft Long Acre site joins the brand’s portfolio of over 20 galleries across the UK and is just a few miles down the road from Clarendon Fine Art’s first-ever location in Mayfair. 

Set to open later in September, the Long Acre gallery space will add to the brand’s London portfolio and will offer a superb fine art experience created to reflect and enhance its community in artwork and atmosphere. Each of the galleries provide a gateway to a world of exceptional modern and contemporary artwork from top international names to exciting new talent. 

Helen Swaby, Founder of Clarendon Fine Art, added: “We take great pride in selecting the perfect location for each new gallery we open, expanding our extensive London portfolio. We have always held Covent Garden in high regard and wanted to ensure we select the ideal prime unit to complement our current portfolio. With restrictions now lifted, and many returning to spend time in central London, we are confident this location on Long Acre will provide access to a high volume of footfall, and we are excited to open our doors and welcome art lovers to our new home.”

Simon Taylor, Property Director at the Mercers’ Company, added: “Our Mercers’ estate has long been committed to supporting and showcasing a variety of arts and culture, from temporary and permanent gallery spaces to exclusive eye-catching murals and public art. Clarendon Fine Art offer inspiring modern and contemporary pieces at a time when Londoners are looking for inspiration to take home, and we are pleased to welcome this unique and dynamic gallery to Covent Garden.”

This latest announcement follows the recent launch of Charlie Smith London’s Art Gallery at 28 Shelton Street, Covent Garden. The temporary pop-up gallery space showcases Sam Jackson’s extensive one person portraits exhibition ‘Collaborators’ which will run until the end of the month. Earlier this month the Mercers’ estate also welcomed the opening of Italian gelato brand Badiani, located at 2 Mercer Walk, as well as the world’s first prison-based coffee company, Redemption Roasters, announcing it has signed for its debut location in the West End, due to open at 40 Drury Lane later this year.
