Gallery @ The Bruce Arms

In the Bruce Arms there are two allocated exhibition areas for displays of artworks including paintings, prints, jewellery and ceramics. The main area is in the east room and is therefore called The East Room Gallery which is large attractive period room running the length of the building on the east side.

Starting in January 2018 we will be exhibiting the work of Lesley Birch in this space through until end of March and this work will be for sale.

In the bar area of The Bruce Arms we have a designated space around and alongside the fireplace and we call this the mini 'Fireside Art Gallery'. This is a small area but which can display work extremely effectively. From January through until March 2018, we will be exhibiting the work of Sue Godden. All work will be for sale.
