Hello and Welcome to the unusual small art Gallery ‘in the barn’!
If we’ve already met then I’d be really pleased to see you again, so please drop by for a ‘catchup’ and a cuppa.
If you’ve just found our site and us, then a warm greeting and yes if you feel like having a sit and a tea or coffee with us up at Goosewell Farm, then please we’d love to meet you.
(By the way the Gallery, albeit it small, is in a wonderful location with stunning views, just ‘down the road’ from the Castlerigg Stone Circle on the Threlkeld side; warning sat. nav. doesn’t bring you here!)
Sharp Edge Gallery started around 2004 founded by local artists as a co-operative for selling their artwork. Originally in Station Street, our last Keswick town location was on the main road by Greta Bridge, opposite the entrance to the Pencil Museum. I became involved with the Gallery, taking it over, from 2009.
Anyway being in town is expensive so we needed to move. The more I thought about it, it seemed to me that it would be more constructive if I could source the art that my friends and clients were looking for, rather than simply displaying artwork that may or may not appeal.
So the Gallery has moved to a small barn in a fantastic location, we have some art on display, pieces stored ready to show, plus we hope to have running on a screen other examples of artwork which we can then source for clients to view.
There is also this website, which I am working on to try and get as many examples of work upon as I can – this may take some time!
Antique and Vintage. Artwork together with old etchings are sometimes available. These can be a cost effective way of building up your own art collection.
Commission work is also sourced. If you have a favourite artist and a favourite location, then please ask me to see if I can arrange for you to ‘commission’ a piece of artwork especially for you. It’s a lovely thing to do for a wedding, or as a special anniversary present for example.
Framing: we work with a superb framer. Work is collected Thursday and returned for the following Friday.
Printing: Mark Hewitt, our in house photographer can print photographs and some artwork up to A2 size.
