THE GALLERY

Named after the elephantine jumble of rocks on the edge of kinder plateau, the gallery is home to photography and artwork unashamedly intended to trigger a memory or evoke an image of a visit to the area.

The gallery also has an eclectic collection of objet, glass, ceramics, homewares from Scandinavia, and a range of ethically sourced gifts.

VARNISHING DAY @ THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF ART

‘Historically, artists would visit the galleries to add final touches to their work in situ. Today, Varnishing Day remains a part of the Summer tradition, but it’s now mostly a day to celebrate the artists in the show – if a slightly weird one. Before visiting the show, the artists gather in the courtyard, form a procession down Piccadilly led by a steel band, then attend an artists’ blessing at St. James’s church.’
