We get so excited when we see inspirational art and craft, the kind of thing that brings a real joy, and the thrill of actually being able to own something so gorgeous, or so meaningful. Seeing a picture or an object that has been made with such skill, or that embodies a unique expression, can give form to a deep feeling or capture an emotion. So we wanted to create a gallery where the quality of the art counts first and foremost, with an ambition to bring the best possible work to new and established audiences, and with a strong desire to nuture and encourage talent and creativity.
We hope that you will find what’s special about Portside Gallery in what we have to offer. Whether that be a bold and beautiful oil painting, a fine porcelain vessel, a tiny hedgerow inspired silver pendant or a simple driftwood cottage… we trust that our artistic heritage and ultimate motivation will show through.
Showcasing the fused glass paintings of Jane Reeves alongside a fantastic community of artists and makers from across the country, we endeavour to show work that delights in expressing the joy and beauty that our city, coast and countryside inspire.
Many of you will have followed Jane’s journey through many years of painting and showing work across the country, through realising a dream of establishing a very succesful gallery in Padstow, to having a small dockside gallery in her home town of Bristol, and now great new premises in Clifton. Thank you for your support!
To discover more about Portside Gallery for yourself, take a virtual tour of our two floors of beautiful art:
Please note: the gallery is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
