New Art Gallery To Open At Brockhole

A new art gallery's opening at the Lake District Visitor Centre at Brockhole this weekend.

The Gaddum Gallery will host free exhibitions all year round and also host workshops.

Cumbrian artist Ellie Chaney's created the first exhibition, called 'Detail in Nature', which features papercuts and prints of animals and plants that live on Windermere's shores.

Sam Mason, General Manager of Brockhole said: “We’re really excited to be opening the Gaddum Gallery, and to be showcasing local talent in our first exhibition.

"We’ve hosted temporary exhibitions in the past here at Brockhole and they’ve always worked really well so we knew it would be a good use of the space to make this a permanent attraction.”

“We’re working to increase the number of indoor attractions on-site so that visitors can enjoy their visit to Windermere, whatever the weather.

"Last month we launched Brave the Cave, an indoor caving experience, and work has now begun to improve our café ready for spring too.”
