Cupola Gallery, established in 1991, is very lively and friendly with a reputation for quality shows and innovation. With four exhibition spaces plus a fabulous sculpture garden, the gallery stocks work from more than 300 local, national and international artists and makers. The main exhibition space plays host to a breathless turnover of shows - approximately ten a year.Cupola is also committed to providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere and to that end provides free chocolate cake every Saturday and free hot drinks to all our visitors any day. Children are always welcome. Cupola boasts an excellent award winning sculpture garden and the upstairs gallery is home to the Long gallery and the Craft gallery. Cupola regularly showcases painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, glass, textiles and jewellery. In addition, Cupola Framing is our well established framing department situated adjacent to the gallery offering high quality bespoke framing as well as selling local artists prints and cards.
