We are now open for the Christmas period with our first December Open Community Exhibition. We invited local artists and makers to provide a piece of their work to show. We had a great response and received original paintings, prints, cards, wall hangings and a snow queen art doll which features in our window display. The gallery is looking lovely and has an incredible range of work – oil, pastel, acrylic and watercolour paintings, prints, textiles, wood carving, stained glass, fused glass, jewellery, soap and clocks.
Of course our regular contributors are also featured with a fantastic new range of stained glass by Lynn Morley, original paintings, limited editions prints by Kevan McGinty and a new series of small signed framed fine art McGinty prints for only £35. We also have several wall hangings by a new regular Fran Raw – The Mochrum Artist, which bring together a range of materials including wool, organza, shells, beads and wood together into intricate textile works of great beauty. We have a lovely range of silk scarves by Elegant Originals and her new line of felted glass tealights and hanging baubles are gorgeous.
All of the items included in the shop are handmade and show the talents of our local community. There are some lovely Christmas gifts and ornaments, including some small stocking fillers. Come along and have a look. We are open until 23rd December every day except Wednesdays from 10am to 4pm. Also open in Whithorn during December is Peter Wareing’s ceramics studio and the brand new Whithorn House Tea rooms so there’s lots to see and lovely cakes to be had.
We would like to wish all of our customers, gallery friends and contributing artists a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Click on the images below to see some of our great items on sale this Christmas.
