THE LANE GALLERY, TRURO, CORNWALL

I am very pleased to be exhibiting at Truro’s newest gallery, The Lane Gallery which is situated above The Scentstore in Cathedral Lane, Truro.

The gallery has, in fact, taken over from The City Gallery which was opened on a temporary basis last year but sales were so good that the gallery manager, Anne Brooks, took the decision to make it more permanent.

In the New Year Anne and her husband John, assisted by several artists from the gallery, Sue Currie (and her husband Fraser) and Martin Pearman gave the gallery a refit and added extra lighting etc. The result being a bright, fresh gallery space which now showcases a dozen or so local artists, including Anne Brooks, Sue Currie, Martin Perman, Viv Gillard, Sylvia Prisk and myself and my good friend Chris Holloway.

Interestingly the gallery is run on a co-operative basis with each artist paying for space as opposed to paying a gallery owner commission and as a result the work is considerably better value than it would otherwise be in a gallery operating on the more convential business model.

Also, each artist usually works in the gallery once a week, thereby giving members of the public a chance to meet with the artists in person.

Below are a few representative photo’s:
