The Eagle Gallery was established by Emma Hill in the old function rooms above the pub and was one of the first alternative gallery spaces that opened in London in the early 1990s. The gallery has gained a firm reputation for promoting the work of contemporary artists through a programme of exhibitions, installations and publications. It has collaborated on off-site exhibitions and projects with organisations including Aldeburgh Music; Almeida Opera; Jesus College Cambridge, and Sadlers Well’s Theatre.
The Eagle Gallery’s EMH Arts imprint publishes artist’s books and prints by many leading UK artists, which are held in public collections including the British Museum, Tate, and the Yale Center for British Art. Publications include a hand-drawn, lithographic book by illustrator Chloe Cheese, which records the daily activity of the Eagle Pub and it customers. Chloe illustrated the first edition of the Eagle cookbook: “Big Flavours and Rough Edges”.
