Gallery Fiodra

We present carefully curated shows featuring a wide variety of arts. Gallery Manager and Curator Anna Chase-Roberts seeks out talented artists to create engaging exhibitions and events along the canals of the UK.

For hire: We also offer artists, photographers and visitors a stand-out experience in special locations. With 16 metres of wall space, projection facilities, marketing support and private view packages, Gallery Fiodra is as unique as your creations.

If you are interested in exhibiting, visiting, or having us come to your canal-side location, email:

"Thank you for all your support during our floating exhibition. Amazing space, amazing people!" Marco Seminaroti - HARTggerston

"Even on a rainy winters day, this gallery is a real Jewel" LV visitor

"This is our new London highlight" Jeff and Margo NY


Exhibitions are curated by our Gallery Manager - Anna Chase-Roberts. Anna is passionate about bringing artists onto Fiodra who might otherwise struggle to have their work seen in central city locations. She has a special interest in illustrative art in all its forms. Anna is an illustration graduate from Arts University Bournemouth and an experienced boater.

“The waterways are an exciting place to be right now. I love the canals in London and I am lucky enough to be able to offer an affordable space on the barge to young artists like me... even small galleries in London charge thousands of pounds to exhibit. By doing it ourselves on the water we can make it affordable to artists and bring something special to the waterway.” Anna

Salome Papadopoullos - FREAK (concluded)

FREAK is an ode to disco, transforming floating gallery Fiodra into a glittering party boat.

Expect original gouache paintings, prints and glitter artwork from London-based illustrator Salome Papadopoullos.
On her practice, Salome says;
‘My paintings are drenched in nostalgia and melancholy, featuring the likes of some of my favourite leading ladies of the 70s and the movers and shakers of the swinging sixties. With a feminist undertone, I try to encapsulate girl pop culture"
