Welcome A warm welcome from the Leatherhead Theatre My name is Emma, and I am the gallery coordinator for the Leatherhead Theatre Art Gallery, a role that I am highly passionate about. The picture that you see below, is an architectural sketch of the original theatre, drawn in the 1960's when Roderick Ham designed it in close collaboration with the town's own Hazel Vincent Wallace. From it's inception, the theatre was designed with beauty and aesthetics in mind, with beautiful white brick walls designed perfectly for art exhibitions. The roof was designed so that daylight filters down through a system of hanging boxes, and at night, the lighting pattern is reversed by suspended lighting troughs which illuminate the spaces between the boxes. Today, we include bespoke gallery lighting to further highlight the artwork on display.

My goal therefore is to facilitate the continuation of gallery exhibitions, arranged on our beautiful theatre walls, and to include within this, marketing that will expose the work to a wider audience of national and international art dealers and local galleries alike. Our artists' work and exhibitions will be further publicised through social media.  My passion is to see greater support for our local artists and to curate beautiful exhibitions that our patrons and visitors can enjoy.  The theatre will facilitate all sales of artwork, with all sale proceeds going straight to the artist. Please feel free to come in and see us, or contact me with any questions or suggestions. I'd love to hear from you.

Brad Kenny "I am fascinated by an artist’s ability to capture the human condition. In my practice I explore portrait and figurative representation. I find myself attracted to expressionist characteristics of strong colours, abstraction, distortion and individual experiences, exploring emotions, identity, character and narrative.   I rely on my instinctive, physical, emotional  and imaginative style favouring strong brush stokes, the unpredictable nature of chaos, including gestural splashes, dripping and non representational colours, that come together in form and composition.  


I often portray strong subjects with a single minded focus or intense representation, relaying a personal sense of society, relationships and emotional experiences to promote authenticity of emotion in my paintings. Being a dyslexic artist; I find that painting is a language for me that is not easily written or expressed; it is a way of communicating and interpreting. I identified with artist, Antony Micallef, who stated ‘I am terribly dyslexic so painting and drawing became a way of expressing myself’.


I have been fortunate to be able to show many of my paintings and have achieved sales in Europe, Australia and the USA. Â I am satisfied with a painting if I feel that it has challenged me and evokes intended and unintended interpretations and when it has provoked reactions"
