Welcome to Thornthwaite Galleries and Teashop
A contemporary art gallery with many local artists’ exhibits in the village of Thornthwaite near Keswick, Cumbria in the English Lake District
For forty years Thornthwaite Galleries has been a major attraction in the Lake District, a country gallery and a true centre of excellence for artists wanting to exhibit the very best. The gallery is housed in a 200 year old Cumbrian bank barn.
In addition to paintings, both original and prints, exhibits include Jewellery, Wood turning, Sculptures(metal, ceramic and wood), Furniture, Glassware, Pottery, Photographs, Beadwork, Silk scarves, Greetings cards & Books.
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 140 exhibitors, many from Cumbria and the North West.
The exhibition area changes every month, to display a larger range of work from individual artists. For details of the exhibitions click here.
