blue tree gallery - March 2020

In line with the government & NHS recommendations, the blue tree gallery will be temporarily closing. This will be for an undetermined period of time and will remain under review in line with government advice.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us via email, as we will not be physically in the gallery as from Friday 20th March 2020.

It's been with a heavy heart as we have just finished refurbishing the gallery and it looks beautiful and we wanted all our customers to see it!  We will be back open as soon as we can, and in the meantime we are setting up shop online through our website!

Please look after yourselves and others.

Best wishes from us.

NHS Charity Exhibition Online

Raising Funds for the NHS

Starting the 20th of April 2020 till 31sy May 2020

This is our first exhibition available online – and to launch the fact that you can now view and buy from our website – we are starting with a very special online exhibition, to raise money to support NHS Frontline workers.

​A minimum of 10% from all our sales of paintings will be donated between the gallery and the artists to the NHS Charities COVID-19.

This Exhibition will offer all of our customers the opportunity to support the NHS, the artists and of course the gallery in these trying times.

​We are pleased to also announce that all work on the website will be posted free of charge, UK only (charges will apply overseas)

We really hope you enjoy the exhibition featuring a variety of gallery artist’s paintings, in the safety and comfort of your own home.

Stay safe and take care of yourselves.                                   

With kindest regards - keep safe and healthy. #ArtHelps #ArtHeals
