Overview

Lovelys has been providing a unique service to artists and art lovers since 1891. We pride ourselves in offering the highest quality bespoke framing service and showcase paintings, prints and limited editions from local and nationally acclaimed artists providing inspirational art to enhance your home. Why not visit our extensive gallery on line. In most cases further works are available so let us know if you would like to see more paintings or prints by a particular artist. We have access to over 50,000 prints worldwide!In 2011 we celebrated 120 years since Lovelys was first established in 1891 which is still run by the family four generations later.In May 2011 Lovelys launched a new contemporary exhibition gallery - "Edge", upstairs in our gallery in Northdown Road, Cliftonville. This creates a new 'edge' to Lovelys, working alongside our continuing commitment to showcasing traditional and contemporary art.Edge will offer a continually changing collection of diverse artwork from Thanet and East Kent based professional artists who are on the periphery of national and international recognition. Edge will also focus attention on the exhibitors creative intentions, encouraging a thought provoking experience.

Lovely's is Margate's oldest art supply shop and is wonderful. Their gallery upstairs hosts an eclectic variety of local artists. Help support local arts, and this iconic family run arts shop! Shop local!

Helpful, friendly and highly knowledgeable staff. I have used this shop many times over the years and really can’t recommend it highly enough. Not sure which shop the negative reviewers talking about. But not sure that it’s here!

I found the staff knowledgeable and very helpful indeed. They tracked down a product for me that other art shops were completely ignorant of and found a similar product. Very friendly and helpful.

Yes you can. My partner buys them for me. And you can spend them in multiple trips, they just knock off what you spend each time.
