the gallery @ Ridware Arts

"The working studio gallery of Deborah Walker RI, which offers a unique insight into not only finished artwork but also how it is made" 

'the gallery' hosts a continually changing selection of paintings by Deb, alongside paintings, original prints, ceramics, sculpture, photography, jewellery and glass by invited artists and makers. In a world of mass production the gallery has a passion for the individual and unique, with a direct link to the artist or maker. 

Whether an art lover or artist, a visit gives a stimulating experience in one of Staffordshire's most beautiful rural areas.

'the gallery' is part of Ridware Arts which offers a continuous programme of recreational classes and workshops in a variety of media in a friendly and relaxed setting. It is also home to Hunter Frames, where Ian Hunter offers a bespoke picture framing service, specialising in works on paper.
