(EDI GROUP FOR STRYX GALLERY)
Stryx Gallery is an artist-run studio and exhibition space with an online presence.
Located at 13 Minerva Works, 158 Fazeley Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B5 5RS.
Our social media platforms are Instagram: @Stryx_Gallery; Facebook: @stryxarts
and home website: www.stryx.co.uk; shop: www.stryxshop.co.uk
We are located on the first floor level of the Minerva Works building, accessible by
two flights of stairs. The building doesn’t have a working elevator and with this in
mind, we are committed to developing our online presence where all can actively
participate in our events. We recently reconfigured our space, which now is in line
with the Government Covid-19 Guidelines.
We have an exhibition space (including blackbox), 16 individual studio spaces, a bar
and one unisex bathroom (unfortunately, it is not set up to accommodate people with
There is parking at the front of the building, however, this parking is not for public
use. There are nearby paid parking spaces available in the surrounding area (for
more information visit: https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/findparking ). Occasionally,
part of our exhibition space is darkened to support video and sound-based
installations. This information will be disclosed within the event information.
There are different ways to get to Stryx Gallery by public transport. By train: use
Moor Street Station or New Street Station and follow the signs towards Digbeth
(10-15 min walk). The nearest coach station is located 10 min walk from the gallery
(Birmingham Coach Station). There are bus route options also (150, 4, 4A, 50, 6, 97,
X1, X2), however, these do not stop directly near Minerva Works and would require
further walking (between 5 -10 minutes, depending on the route).
We aim to create an Easy Read Document for both on-site and online distribution for
each public event and internal communication with our artists. The information about
the show and the programme is available in English, if you require information in a
different format please contact us before attending the event at
Please be aware that our team is working on a part-time basis, meaning it can take
us up to 1 week to reply to your queries.
WHEN IN THE GALLERY...
When in the gallery, please feel free to ask for a chair if you want or require one.
While exhibiting artists agree for their works to be photographed, please refrain from
using flash photography and be mindful of taking photographs of other visitors
without their permission.
If you need to move around, twitch, pace or not to make eye contact, know that you
are welcome here. During openings, our space can become crowded and loud. If
you would like to visit the gallery on a different date please ask and we will arrange a
viewing outside of our opening night. We are currently working on VR accessibility
for our events; the information will be available on our website.
We welcome children and service animals in our space, however, sometimes we
show work that might be unsuitable for young people or to be too loud for animals.
This information will be included in our event description as well as on the doors to
the gallery during an opening night.
If you have any questions, and/or suggestions to help us improve accessibility
please contact us through social media or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or
