Based in a beautiful old school building, we have a unique and inspiring collection of affordable art and prints by artists from Northumberland and further afield. We are always sourcing pictures that would look great in the home – we hope you like them too! You can take it all in whilst you enjoy a delicious fresh coffee and a tasty homemade cake in our gallery coffee shop.
