The Mercury – Gallery switch at the Tavern
Published: 16th November 2011
THE owners of an art gallery housed behind a pub will hand the space over to a new group on Saturday. Tank at the Ladywell Tavern is currently showing its last display before moving on to work on other installations and venues. The gallery has been based behind the pub in Ladywell Road, Ladywell, for the past two-and-a-half years.
Edward Chell’s Viewing Stations will be the last exhibition held at Tank Gallery. It will be taken over by the team behind the gallery’s popular Misty Moon exhibitions and events.
Led by director and curator Stuart Morriss, it will be renamed the Misty Moon Gallery. It is due to reopen with a group exhibition of work by UK and international artists on Thursday, December 8.
Among the work on show will be paintings by horror film actress Adrienne King, who starred in Friday The 13th. The American star flew over from the US for a Misty Moon exhibition in September. The Misty Moon Gallery will also hold art fairs, craft markets, talks and screenings.
The Mercury – Art got cult horror film star back on her feet

FILM-LOVERS have the chance to see a cult classic with a star of the silver screen on Saturday when an actress launches an exhibition of her artwork.
Adrienne King was immortalised in the horror hall of fame after she starred in Friday The 13th. But in recent years, the US actress has turned increasingly to her second love of art and has been exhibiting her work across the globe.
She has exhibited pieces before at the Misty Moon gallery at the Ladywell Tavern in Ladywell Road, Lewisham, but this will be her first solo show in the UK.
