Colours of Eden

"ARTetc" is a group of local artists who met some years ago at the University of Cumbria on an Art & Design course.
Since completing the course they have each developed their own direction but still meet together once a month to discuss their ideas and designs.
They all get inspiration from the Cumbrian landscape and this season's exhibition, "Colours of Eden" is no exception, bringing together the many aspects of the Eden Valley.
The exhibition is already proving very popular with customers looking for quality ideas for Christmas presents. Members of the group will be in the gallery on November 30th, when we will be serving Mulled wine between 2p.m. and 4p.m. We really hope you can join us.


It has been wonderful to see all of the visitors on the C- Art open studios trail, as well as our regular visitors of this time of the year. This superb weather has really allowed everyone to enjoy the true splendour of the Lake District. 

As usual there is a lot of new work in the gallery. We are delighted to still be showing a small collection of Daniel Cooper's work, following his successful Exhibition here.


'Fine Lines' our current exhibition by Ron Ablewhite is under way now, so don't miss the opportunity to see it. Themed on the nursery rhyme - The Grand old Duke of York - the exhibition contains a selection of swaledale sheep, line drawings.

'Pretty Maids all in a Row'

We have also just hung a selection of new work by Tessa Kennedy, in her exciting, eviable style!!

'Walla Crag, Blencathra and Derwentwater'


Our latest 'Spotlight On' exhibition titled 'TURN! TURN! TURN! (to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens)  by Scottish Landscape artist Anne Butler is now on dislay.

Anne grew up on a hill farm in a beautiful and undiscovered area of North Dumfriesshire. She studied at Leith School of Art in Edinburgh and has a small studio in the conservation village of Durisdeer close to where she grew up.

Time after Time - acrylic on canvas


Spring Time - acrylic on canvas  £250

'Reign of light'

Reign of Light, the new solo exhibition of drawings and paintings by Lakeland artist Daniel Cooper captures a highly emotional response to the changing weather in both the North and South Lakes. After being involved with sourcing new inspiration from the dramatic views of Cumbria’s northern landscape, Daniel observes in the spirit of a modern romantic painter; expressing the sublime and ephemeral happenings in nature.

Daniel will be in the gallery on Saturday 26th July between 2 p.m and 5 p.m - to discuss his work. We hope you can join us for a glass of wine.
