Come and visit Pendles most exciting art gallery and be quietly surprised at what a hidden gem of a place you have come across. Situated on the towns popular main thoroughfare Albert Road, we occupy the ground floor of 113 West End Buildings, built in 1906 and originally used as a Baptist chapel.
David and Lesley the current owners, have over the last 4 years developed the business from what was known locally as the picture framers into a delightful friendly and spacious contemporary art gallery. Our main focus is to showcase high quality, original northern contemporary art and signed limited edition prints created and produced by our regions best artists at affordable prices.
Earlier in 2012 we opened a new extension to the main art gallery, which gave us the opportunity to offer a dedicated exhibition space for both solo and mixed group shows. This has proved to be an exciting new venture, with several successful artist solo exhibitions behind us we have recently launched a mixed winter exhibition showcasing the work of 30 northwest based artists, continuing until 26th January 2013.
To compliment the stunning artwork on display we also offer a beautiful selection of jewellery, handmade locally and a unique and varied selection of both new and retro studio glassware and greetings cards.
During 2010 we launched our website www.arteology.co.uk
