Gorgeous Gallery.

A beautiful little gallery showcasing the work of Mick Oxley and possibly other local artists. Worth popping into whilst visiting Craster.

Thanks for your review Caire S. Pleased you like the gallery. Although I keep most of the wallspace for my paintings, we stock over 20 other artists in various mediums. Look forward to welcoming you again. More

Had a relaxing browse here, no pressure or obligation to buy. Some wonderful paintings and jewellery for sale (I could have filled the car) but instead I left with a pair of lovely earrings by Fiona Dane (£25). I’ve worn a few times already and will many more I’m sure. Friendly and helpful sales assistant (sorry, didn’t catch her name).

A nicely laid out gallery,with lots of stuff in it. In my view holiday souvenirs. The paintings all looked very similar to me and very very expensive. Really only went in as there is nothing else to do in Craster It had a hushed church like atmosphere. All the other items were very expensive.

Thank you for your visit and review Doreen C. All he items on display were hand crafted and carry a higher price than mass produced goods. Sorry you did not see anything that took your fancy. You will receive a warm, friendly welcome should you visit us again. More

Spent a few holidays in Northumberland and have always loved the long beaches with their prominent castles and big skies. The artwork by Mick and others reflects the natural panoramas of the sea and the beaches so evocatively. There are paintings, canvasses, prints, ceramics and jewellery on show and for sale. We paid several visits, taking time to choose our... More

Very talented painter with a wide range of subjects. The gallery also has a wide range of ceramics which were mind blowing. Well worth the visit

We stayed in Craster for a week recently & I visited the gallery daily to soak in the many aspects of Mick's work & the various paintings, photographs & glassware etc from other artists. The gallery have both friendly & informative staff (Liz & her colleague). Sadly I didn't meet Mick himself, but hopefully next time as the Gallery, Craster... More

A quaint little gallery easy to spot if you have taken the public footpath route into Craster from the Car Park. I loved the artwork and if I had the funds would have gladly snapped one up. Some earrings and a ring sufficed.

Awesome selection of work from Mick - another reviewer said 'pricey' but bear in mind you are buying a unique work of art from a well-established artist (and not a print from Ikea lol). The Gallery is lovely, accessible and shows other beautiful work/gifts alongside the paintings and prints. Stay, have a chat and support a Northumbrian artist!

We popped in as we were passing by in Craster. Plenty seascapes in a multitude of media, but frankly pricey with an average of prices around £450 for a painting about 18"x12", some larger ones over £1000. We noticed that the gallery was opened by David Milliband MP in 2003, but just why they needed a plaque stating that I'm... More
