About

Delphian Gallery promotes art that facilitates a never-ending dialogue and an open forum to seek out new possibilities in an increasingly hostile environment.

Delphian, meaning ‘obscurely prophetic’ aims to be just that, giving a platform to varying work that is and will become important to people in a way that may not at first be apparent. Art in a broader sense aims to raise questions about our lives and the world around us that sometimes cannot be expressed in other ways.

Art must be more than just a pretty picture, as the best art is both beautiful and ugly in one.
