Kentmere House Gallery
Relaxed home gallery displaying original art
First Sat and Sun of every month: 11.00 – 17.00
Spread across the two reception rooms on the ground floor and up the first stairwell through to the first-floor landing of the Victorian house Ann Petherick shares with her husband, you’ll find paintings and pieces decorating the walls of this impressive home gallery. They also open their own collection to visitors in the sitting room where an atmospheric green hue offsets the colourful pieces, with the belief that original art should be accessible to all.
Many of the artists (Susan Bower, John Brunsden and Michael Ewart to name just three) also display their work in galleries across the UK and further afield, and all the art is for sale with prices starting at £200 for original pieces. In addition, there are genuine prints, cards and postcards for sale so that everyone can take a small piece of art home with them.
“People ask how I select artists for the gallery but all I am concerned about is the quality of the work which, I suppose, defines the artwork we display.”
