Fine Art Gallery opens in the Forest of Dean
After its very successful first year in Monmouth, Creates Gallery is expanding! Creates Gallery and Coffee Shop opened on the 1st December 2018, in the Forest of Dean. It
is located in the Dean Heritage Centre, and Creates Gallery are proud to partner with such a great organisation.
The coffee shop will be serving delicious food and beverages, and customers will be able to peruse the work of local artists and makers while they eat and socialise. The gallery will showcase Sculpture, Fine Art, Jewellery, Ceramics and Glass, all of which will be available to purchase.
The new Creates Gallery and Coffee Shop is the first of its kind in the Forest, and will become a hub for artists and makers, offering workshops, exhibitions and demos in the future too.
Forest Landscapes, in various styles are well represented in the opening exhibition. Visitors to the gallery at the Dean Heritage Centre will find favourites such as Warren Day with his fascinating mixed media landscapes, which continue to intrigue visitors.
The following artists are showing in the first exhibition; Warren Day, Mary Edwards, Angela Palmer, Deborah Harrison, Kate Wrigglesworth and Mark Beresford.
Alison Breton, Chair of Trustees of the Dean Heritage Centre commented:
"This is a wonderful tie up for the Dean Heritage Centre and fits perfectly with our ethos for locally produced items, artwork and set in our stunning woodland setting. We are really excited to be part of this new venture and are looking forward to being a hub for local artwork and artists".
