A one day shopping special with exclusive items and promotions
As a rule, we don't open on Sundays but we have arranged a lovely event for Sunday 3rd November 2019, our shop On Sunday Autumn Event.
We will be open from 10.30am until 4.00pm and we will be bursting at the seams with silver and costume jewellery, gorgeous scarves, gloves and hats all exclusive to this event.
There will be lots of new sculptures from the very talented Matt Buckley and fantastic savings to be made on Doug Hyde sculptures so if you don't come along on the day you'll miss out on the savings!
There are highlighted offers on Jennifer Hogwood's artwork along with Heather Howe, Rozanne Bell and Lucy Pittaway so it's a great chance to shop for Christmas and save a few pennies too...much better than being sat at home and shopping online. Come and see what you are buying and support local business. Did we mention the fizz and cake? No....well you can sip and munch whilst you browse!
Bring along friends and family and see what it's all about, see you on Sunday 3rd November.
Have you used our framing services yet?
Our gallery is so high profile that it is sometimes easy to forget the other half of our business. For nearly 30 years we have offered a wide ranging framing service with all work carried out in our on site workshop.
We keep pace with trends and new framing innovations from our suppliers to ensure the most up to date advice and products are available to you. Stephen and I make sure we are aware of current interior design styles, colours, fabrics and looks so that we can offer you framing combinations to work with your home.
Our frame design capabilities enable us to produce bespoke solutions for framing unusual items. We are proud to have framed the historical documents and items for Bentley Priory RAF Museum, including parts of a Spitfire engine! A full range of sympathetic framing options are available for all types of war and historical memorabillia.
Whatever is precious enough for you to want to frame, it is important enough to us to frame it well. Whether it is a certificate, a photograph with happy memories or something close to your heart, a good frame will keep it forever.
Our art glass with 70% UV protection is just the ticket for that added protection for your framing item.
Come along and see what our framing service can offer you and speak to us about your ideas and framing items; we'd be happy to talk you through the process on a personal level.
The All Smiles Collection is available! Come and take a look at Doug's fabulous work in the gallery now
Timed to perfection for Mother's Day, the brand new collection by Doug Hyde is in the gallery. We also have the special piece, 'Every kind of love' which is an edition of just 195 and is a hand embellished canvas. There are some lovely pieces in this collection for all budgets and they make such lovely Mother's Day gifts that last forever.
Fresh faces for Autumn
Well, that's Summer behind us and onwards towards the word I must not utter yet apparently! To get Autumn off to a cracking start we have introduced some super new artists into the gallery.
For those who love a funky, contemporary style, we have Broke Art who is a bright young artist who paints celebrities that we all love. We current have Frank, Freddie and Nina gracing our wall. Broke Art is currently studying Fine Art Printmaking at The University of Brighton and his work was exhibited in the Brighton University First Impressions show in 2016. In 2015, the artist was the overall winner of the GWP 25th Anniversary Art Show in Swindon as well as the first prize winner at the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies in Pewsey in 2010. His work encompasses computer based design with the mediums of stencil, spray paint and print.
Danielle D and her side kick Buddy the Cow have put out some adorable limited edition prints which are selling fast as always. They are a great price and would make great gifts or a treat for yourself!
If cool, elegant abstract design is on your agenda, then Stella Parslow is the artist for you. Her mellow colour palette all beautifully toned with raised silver detailing is the ultimate in sophistication.
Don't forget that you can keep up to date with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to be right up to date with what is arriving in the gallery almost weekly!
The British landscape is back in fashion and adding a sophisticated edge to contemporary interiors
Landscapes have been slightly out of vogue for the past few years with people thinking that traditional and contemporary can never be mixed.....but that's simply not true!
Gordon Lees is one of the UK's foremost landscape artists and his attention to detail is rarely surpassed. The use of light and texture means that these pictures add atmosphere to your home even if the interior has a contemporary edge, it's the placement and size of the artwork which is key.
We have successfully placed some of Gordon's originals in newly built houses to stunning effect. The hand finished frames give a sense of quality and the soft colours and use of light mean that in open areas with good natural light they come into there own.
We have a fantastic selection of not only Gordon's work but also other pieces of landscape artwork in the gallery at the moment so call in, take a look at the gorgeous artwork and we are happy to advise you with regard to hanging landscapes in your home.
So many new artists and pictures!
I can't believe how fast this year is going! Before we knew it we were at the Spring Trade Fair at the NEC choosing lots of new art and pictures. These are arriving almost daily in the gallery at the moment and have made a beautiful Mother's Day window for us.
Our newest pieces are a super collection of open prints, all framed with prices from £55.00. There are box canvases, embellished prints and even open editions from one of our best selling artists, Nigel Cooke. Nigels' prints are on canvas board with embellishment so if you loved his originals then these framed pieces starting at £185.00 are just for you.
Along with these, we have originals from new artists such as Yulia Lisle and Geoff Beckett and limited editions from Sarah Ewing and Danielle D winging their way to us. We have also stocked up on the ever popular silver and white contemporary ceramics which make great gifts.
As a reminder, we do offer Interest Free Finance on all our artwork over £300.00 so you can spruce up your home or invest in a beautiful original at an affordable pace.
The best way to see all our new pieces is to come along and see for yourself. You are always guaranteed a friendly welcome (and a cup of coffee) at any time; we are looking forward to showing you what we have.
Looking for new ideas and art......then come and see what we have that's new!
We have had a busy few months with art sales and commissions. Danny Abrahams completed a wonderful commission for some very dear clients of ours this week. We sent some photos over to him and...hey presto he sent us a beautiful piece of very personal artwork. We don't have any originals by Danny at present but we do have a great range of his limited editions with lovely sentiments and at only £150.00 framed they are so affordable.
If you are after a picture to make you smile, then David Smith's work is just for you. Three super limited editions are in the gallery now and they would be just the ticket for a lovely Father's Day gift.
All the artwork is available now and is on display in the gallery so call in, say hello and see what we've got.
0% Finance now available
At last! We are so pleased to be able to offer our customers 0% finance on all art purchases over £300.00. It has been a while since we offered this facility but now, with changes to various credit licences, we are up and running once again.
The real beauty about this facility is that it spreads your payments out so you don't have to eat into savings or take a big chunk out of this month's budget. It is so easy to accomodate a smaller monthly payment into your out goings and, of course, you can take the artwork home there and then! In the past we even had one customer who used to buy regularly using this scheme; as soon as one agreement came to an end he came in and added to his collection as he was used to the monthy payments.
We can offer finance over 6,9,10 and 12 months and the minimum deposit is 10% of the purchase price. The application is totally on line with documents emailed to you and, in the large majority of cases, the decision is super quick.
So, if you have had your eye on that wonderful Kerry Darlington but couldn't justify spending the money....you can now treat yourself and, as it is 0% interest, it is completely guilt free!
Come in and talk to us about this service and take a look at the great new stock that has come in this week which includes some new artists too. Hope to see you soon.
We have had ANOTHER delivery of amazing artwork for Christmas
I think that we may need to invest in a Sleigh like a certain well known individual this December! We have been selling artwork so fast that we had to put calls in to two of our lovely art dealers for more stock and, as always, they didn't let us down.
With the latest edition by Kerry Darlington, 'Alice in William Rabbit's Lounge' sold out before it came into the gallery, Rozanne Bell has been taking up the slack and her originals have been flying out of the gallery. Our FREE Home Approval Service has been in demand with customers looking at the artwork in their home with us on hand to advise.
We have some great new artists in the gallery; Simon Wright gives a contemporary twist to wildlife art, Tony Gittens brings old fashioned romance to the gallery and Veronika Benoni gives a sophisticated and subtle take on the cityscape.
We are open seven days a week up until Christmas, so come and see for yourself what amazing artwork we have in at the moment, we'd love to see you.
Oh what a night!
What an amazing night with the simple fabulous ROZANNE BELL yesterday. The gallery was entirely given over to her work and looked amazing; it's not often that we can showcase so many pieces of work from all the styles of one artist but with Rozanne that's exactly what we did.
As with all good exhibitions, the people came, the wine flowed and much artwork was bought. So many collectors old and new were snapping up the artwork faster than myself, Stephen and the crew could write the receipts. There wasn't one style that was more popular than the others but we are spending the next few days delivering the larger pieces!
Rozanne was a wonderful guest and our clients loved her warm and bubbly personality and she was so very self effacing that you couldn't help but be drawn to her and hence the atmosphere in the gallery was lighthearted and happy; just what Stephen and I love the most. If you missed out yesterday you still have plenty of time to come and see and invest in Rozanne's work as her exhibition will be available in the gallery for the next two weeks.
Our new look gallery and Rozannes' exhibition were a great start to a new phase in our business...onwards and upwards as they say. We'd like to say a very big thank you to Rozanne, our lovely customers who support us so well and, of course, a big warm hello to the great new customers that we met.
