EVAN Gallery

Some of my work is now on permanent display at our Eden Valley Artistic Network’s new Gallery & Studios Hub in Penrith. Please come and have a look around the three beautiful gallery spaces, which feature the work of over forty artists & makers.

We also have artists studios on site, so you can meet the artists and talk to them about their work.

The gallery is open 7 days a week from 10:00am until 4:00pm

A little background.

Our fast growing artist organisation "Evan" were offered an old building by Eden District Council to use as a permanent base. Originally an Antique Shop it was run down and unloved, until now that is. In the space of around 6- 8 weeks the artists themselves got together and put in a fantastic amount of work and time to renew, paint and turn this unloved building into a vibrant, modern contemporary gallery and studio space.

It really does show what can be done when people pull together. The gallery is a great addition to this small but bustling market town, gateway to the Northern Lake District.

Eden Valley Artistic Network

EVAN was founded by artists and is run by artists. To be a network of individuals, organisations and venues established to promote and support artistic endeavors in the Eden Valley area and give a voice to artists.

I am lucky to be part of a group of artists, organisations and venues based in the North Lakes and Eden Valley and follow the concept that an artistic network should be friendly, welcoming and inviting, EVAN is an inclusive organisation and welcomes all artists, from those just starting out on the artistic path to those who are creative professionals.

Its Goals are:

  • to support the development of local artists, creating pathways to progress
  • to provide opportunities for local artists to show and market their work, connecting them with the local and tourist communities
  • o create opportunities for networking and socialising
  • to provide a professional development scheme for local working artists
  • to provide a mentoring scheme for artistic endeavour
