September 2022

With the start of a new school year, September always feel like a time of change and renewal. Maybe time to treat yourself to a new piece of artwork if you are upgrading your home decor. We certainly have plenty of new releases to tempt you and this month we are concentrating on Limited Editions.



The reception we have had since taking on NEIL PENGELLY this time last year has been phenomenal. We are truly grateful to all of you who have purchased his art, making us one of the highest selling galleries for his work. We are super excited to announce his latest release 'Three Lionesses'. A piece full of messages of positivity, respect and lots of reference to the recent win at Euro 22. The perfect partner if you have the sold out 'Three Lions' or as a stand alone piece. Contact us to order yours today....

Vibrant and uplifting, DOUG HYDE'S new collection of limited editions gives us his heart-warming take on the idea of escaping on holiday. His work is always very collectable and it has a lovely sentiment to it. Doug says:

"I hope people can feel a connection with my work, and share the positive emotions behind it! I am passionate about my work and commit everything to it. I hope that those who buy my work feel the same emotion for it that I do; I hope they love it!"

Another popular artist in the gallery is GARY WALTON with his quirky two-dimensional artwork with an intriguing air of fantasy combined with a twist of reality. These fun Limited Editions start at £170 framed so they are a great price to get some lovely work from an established artist.

As always keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram for updates as we have lots of new art arriving in the gallery all the time. Hopefully we will have some exciting news very soon relating to a new artist we are signing, watch this space!!!

Over the course of her impressive career SHEREE VALENTINE DAINES has become one of the UK's most collectable contemporary artists and has a series of stunning Limited Editions which have become highly desirable collectors' items with a discerning international following of art lovers, she enjoys an unrivalled reputation in the international arena. Her impressionistic approach lends a unique charm to each stunning, figurative composition, her subtle hand blending each detail into a creation of captivating elegance. This collection including nostalgic scenes of children at the beach starts at a very affordable £425. If you have a larger budget we can source Sheree's originals.

If you are after a commission of a local scene then DANNY ABRAHAMS is the artist to do this for you. Although he is based in Bradford he has a vast knowledge of Worthing and the surrounding areas as he has been visiting us and producing commissions for many years. Just let us know if you would like Danny to work his magic on that special scene for you!

REBECCA LARDNER’S distinctive oils on canvas are beautifully depicted portrayals of life on the land and the sea. The large ensemble cast of figures, boats and sea birds creates an impression of ceaseless activity, and this is heightened by the natural curves of the classic English harbour which provide movement and energy. Her palette is based strongly on the colours of the sea, with blues, greens and greys dominating the entire canvas. Perfect for a lifelong memory of holidays spent by the sea.

With lots of new artwork arriving in the gallery at the moment we would like to share with you some of our favourite pieces.....



Firstly we are very excited to announce the long awaited release of JACK VETTRIANO'S 'The Billy Boys'. This is one of Vettriano's most famous paintings depicting four men dressed in suits walking along a beach at sunset. The composition was inspired by a poster designed for Quentin Tarantino's 1992 American film 'Reservoir Dogs'. The title of the piece however ties in with Vettriano's Scottish roots as 'Billy Boys' is a loyalist song from Glasgow that originated in the 1920s and is often associated with the long-running religious divide between Protestants and Catholics in the city. A Limited Edition of 275 with 30 A/Ps. We can supply framed £645 or mounted only £495. Release date is 20th May 2022 so get in touch if you would like to secure one as we are sure this will be a sell out....

Adding some sparkle and shine to the gallery is new artist STEPHEN GRAHAM. Stephen graduated from the prestigious college of Art and Design at Central Saint Martins in London in 2003, and now lives and works in his home country of South Africa. Over the last decade, his works have become highly sought after collector's pieces. His Limited Editions enhanced with his use of diamond dust to add sparkle and clarity are eye catching and thought provoking.

After a long time trying to get hold of some more work from JOHN MCKINSTRY we have finally secured two beautiful originals. We have put them straight in the window so feel free to pop by and admire them whilst they are still available, it won't be for long!

Coming soon from EDGE SCULPTURE are the highly anticipated releases from the 'Three Wise Chimpanzees' series. 'See No Evil' & 'Speak No Evil' will soon be available to join 'Hear No Evil'. We have placed our order so let us know if you would like to secure yours. Their delivery date will be confirmed asap.

New artist to the gallery KATIE DAY draws on her inspiration from landscapes and the beautiful colours she sees in everyday nature and the world around us to create these beautiful originals. Using alcohol inks and acrylics and she is enjoying the potential of these wonderful mixed media. With the fluidity and vibrancy as well as the unexpected spontaneity, the results in these bright coloured and dye-based paints can produce amazing textures and unique effects drawing the viewer into her world. We were all struck by them the first time we saw her work and hope you like them as well?

Also new to the gallery is KARA STRACHAN. Kara's distinctive style and subject are inspired from her many years of floristry running her own successful business in London. Her love of the coast, woodlands and flowers is beautifully represented through her bold atmospheric paintings which would add a lovely spring feel to your home.

Always a favourite of ours is ROZANNE BELL. As you know bright colours, metallics and texture are a signature of Roz's. From stunning flowers and meadows to seaside harbours, her style and colourful personality shines from them all.

Keith McBride has achieved an international reputation for his amusing and quirkily iconic images featuring London and it's residents.

There is also 'War Is Over' a John Lennon tribute and 'Platinum Queen'. 'Shine On' is one of those pieces where the more you look the more you see, perfect for music lovers to reminisce about the Madchester music scene. Or for an entirely different musical genre Kylie is looking stunning in 'Better The Devil You Know'. Let us know which is your favourite!

"For me, art is fun. I only have one objective, to try and engage the audience for a reaction, good or bad. I love what I do, you can never take it too seriously, it’s not life or death. At the end of the day, it’s just fun."
