Inside The Gallery

If you are a regular visitor to Beside The Wave you may have noticed some changes, we have got a little bit bigger!  Knocking through to the space next door we now have a dedicated home for our growing collection of limited edition prints.  We also have more space for ceramics, jewellery and very soon there will be a wonderful range of our own art cards available.

We are in the process of getting the signs done for the front but inside all is bustling.

The entrance to our new area is right beside the fireplace,
the main gallery
This is what the main gallery looks like now, for those of you who cant actually visit us.  This is where we show our latest exhibitions and host lovely previews where you can enjoy a glass of wine and often have a chance to meet the artist.  Upstairs is yet another space...
the "treasure trove" with a changing display of just a tiny fraction of the 700 plus original paintings that we have in the building, this is a room where you can sit and enjoy the paintings, or wait while we fetch paintings from the store that you may want to see and own.
Representing 30 artists we have something to suit most tastes, from very figurative to expressive and abstract, new impressionists and wonderful colourists.

We also have a fantastic view.
So if you haven't visited us in a while, make a point of coming along this summer.  If you have never visited then why not came and see us, if you are too far away you will have to make do with this blog and our web site.  We can send work all over the world and often do.  We are open seven days a week and can be contacted by email or phone.
Next instalment on this blog will be what goes on behind the scenes!
