The Story of Seaglass Gallery
In the way that seaglass becomes a thing of beauty as time passes, we had a seed of an idea which grew into a treasure that we are excited to share with you. What was, until about twenty years ago, the village newsagents has once again welcomed the community through the doors- this time to celebrate creativity and enjoy art. Seaglass Gallery, our independent family business, is a calm and restful space full of beautiful art pieces that will inspire and bring joy. We exhibit and sell local artists' work and run art workshops. Many of the Seaglass artists are award winning and have exhibited nationally.
Charlotte, who has previously taught for many years, runs the Seaglass Gallery. When Seaglass is closed she focuses on her own art- both painting and printing. She is inspired by the natural world, walking and her love of river and sea swims through all the seasons.
Much of Seaglass's artwork is linked to Lympstone's beautiful surroundings - a place that is much loved by us. We recognise the importance of both art and nature to wellbeing and it is this that shapes the workshops we run. Workshops are run either by Charlotte or other accomplished artists, all bringing their unique skills and passion for what they do.
Seaglass Gallery opened its doors for the first time in summer 2021. We are open as a gallery from 10-4 on a Friday and Saturday, occasionally closed for a short break at high tide. Our workshops are run at various other times during the week. If you are looking for a calm and creative time in small groups (no more than six people) then our workshops will be perfect for you. All tools and materials are provided, so the whole experience is enriching and relaxing. We cater for all levels of experience. Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to find out about forthcoming workshops and events. We look forward to meeting you.
