Overview

We are a Community gallery in Rothbury, Northumberland, run and staffed entirely by volunteers, displaying the work of 140 local artists, open 7 days a week from March to December. We occupy three large rooms, one of which is an art studio, above the Library and Police station in Rothbury and make use of the Art on the Stairs exhibition space as well. There is parking outside the Gallery and a toilet for visitors. Disabled access is only possible when the Library is open. Cafes and shops in Rothbury village are a very short walk away.

Plenty to see in here and all what I would call 'proper' art and craft with no tat. Plenty of original art and prints, wood turning and carving and lots of cards. Easy to choose presents from local artists or craftsmen without breaking the bank....More
