The story so far
Back in 2005 when Jason worked as a delivery driver for a local bakery firm, he noticed an empty shop in Wooler from it would be a good idea to turn his signs and graphics hobby into a business, using this shop as a base to meet clients and prepare the vinyl. Shortly afterwards his wife Claire filled some of the empty walls with some of his sisters paintings and prints. Joanne Wishart kindly agreed to lend us some work and over the next few years the little shop evolved into an art gallery.
Jump forward to 2008 and the opportunity to move into a larger shop a few doors down was to good to miss. The design room art gallery at 79 High Street has two rooms offering the chance to host solo exhibitions and events.
Guest artist James Blinkhorn came up to open the gallery which happened to coinside with Claires birthday. A great night was had by all who attended.
Our opening evening. James Blinkhorn and the lads talking about cars.... not art!
In 2014 we opened a second gallery in the centre of Alnwick.
With its tall ceilings a perfect place to show off some larger paintings.
Now in 2016 we have decided to drop the design room art gallery name, and give the new gallery in alnwick a simple new title
"The Alnwick Gallery".
Wooler will close as a gallery and return to a signs and graphics business called Glendale Graphics.
Bespoke picture framing service will still be offered through this shop in Wooler
