Cromford Gallery will be open again next week

Cromford Studio and Gallery in the Market Place, Cromford is re-opening next Wednesday June 17.

The featured artist for June is Pete Gill, whose exhibitions are always a big hit with the gallery’s regulars.

The themes for his work are mainly derived from Derbyshire landscapes and are explored using a variety of media and materials. He favours acrylics, and he adds texture with the addition of fillers. 

Surfaces are built up with reclaimed and found materials. Peter has exhibited widely and has taken part in the Wirksworth Festival for several years. He has been awarded the print trophy in the Derbyshire Open Exhibition twice and has had work commended on several occasions.

The gallery owner Martin Sloman has been continuing to work on his original watercolours during lockdown and has produced a new body of work that will be on display in the gallery. He is offering a 50 per cent discount on his paintings – including the new work.

The gallery also has a wide range of regular artists’ work on display including fine art from Carol Hill, Giles Davis, and Ruth Gray along with stained glass by Chantal Kelly, lace by Louise West and Sue Gorman’s ceramics.They also have lots of handcrafted jewellery by Marie Appleyard, Justine Nettleton, and Janice Allen.

The gallery has undertaken a Covid 19 risk assessment, and a full range of measures have been put in place to ensure your safety.

The opening hours are Wednesday to Sunday 10am-5pm. For more details click here
