About Us

The Courtyard Gallery

The gallery is run as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and is a vibrant community arts space, putting you in touch with local artists and local arts resources. The gallery exhibits the work of twenty local artists who take turns in stewarding the gallery, and offer both a friendly welcome as well as information about the artists and their processes. 

You will find a wide selection of affordable local creative work here, from artist-made cards and gifts to original contemporary art for your home and garden.
