For thirty five years Thornthwaite Galleries has been a country gallery and a true centre of excellence for artists wanting to exhibit the very best.
The changing exhibits over the years have responded to the subtle shifts in cultural expectations which inevitably takes place from season to season and continues to reflect the ever evolving tastes of the contemporary market.
The Gallery is much larger than most people expect it to be with a seemingly unending range of work in terms of it's nature, size and price. The Gallery now displays the work of over 130 exhibitors, many from Cumbria and the North West.
In addition to the artistic exhibits, the Gallery offers an extensive range of giftware. Gift tokens of £10 and upwards, are available from the Gallery and provide the solution to those more difficult gift problems.
The Gallery can offer light refreshments and some of the warm comforts of home to those who make the journey where they can relax in it's gentle restful atmosphere and refresh their spirit. Anne and Ron Monk are the owners and they, together with their staff, aim to make your visit a stimulating and memorable experience.
