Congratulations

Kirstie Behrens, one of our contributing artists has just graduated in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Her work is on show there until Sunday 26th May. Kirstie`s signature works in our gallery were the tall thin blue etchings of St Michaels Pines, alas now sold. Part of her degree project was based around St Michaels woodland and we would hope to have more work shortly.

At present we have some smaller unframed pieces in a browser

Opening Days

Our usual hours are every Saturday 11am to 4.30pm and we try to get in before 10.30 and are often still there by 5pm if the street is busy. .   We have an extensive range of new gifts, prints and cards in the Gallery now, with a major rehang of artworks. We may try to open through the week if we cannot manage Saturdays, check our instagram feed and this blog. We try to put the sign out when open having now acquired a wind resistant one which does not fall over !

We aim to post every week on Instagram, so please follow us there where we will give openings and feature some prints every week.

If you have difficulty getting in on Saturdays, give us a call, we are often not far away and can open by arrangement. Similarly, if you see anything on the web you would like to reserve, just let us know

Winner of Rising Star Award in High Street of the Year

Great news that Newport won the Rising Star award in the competition which was sponsored by Visa. The judging team came round on a Tuesday and all businesses made a great effort to promote the town to the judges. Was worth the effort and many thanks to Becky Myles of the Traders Association for all her work in promoting it. The prize was a substantial cheque for use within the community.

Gifts

We are bringing in a small selection of tasteful gifts,all now in stock . The Felt so Good range are made within a fair trade community in Nepal using traditional handmade techniques. They are for ages 3 plus, not for very small children. They generally come strung for hanging up.See also our jewellery, both seaglass from outer Hebrides and leaves in silver or gilt from Assynt. We also have quality Bamboo cups, Bamboo socks, lots of cards in addition to our mainstream prints.Some new jewellery has arrived, by independent makers based in Scotland. We also have some wrought iron lamps and candleholders from an artisan blacksmith and a small selection of  Clarabella cushions, lampshades and scarves, all very design oriented.
