Fine art gallery for original landscape paintings and photography of the Derbyshire Peak District
The Derwent Gallery
is situated in a beautiful Derbyshire Peak District location close to Chatsworth House, Padley Gorge and the National Trust Longshaw Estate and the famous Stanage Edge for hiking and rock climbing with the towns of Chesterfield and Buxton and the City of Sheffield on its doorstep. The Gallery's reputation has been based on the high proportion of original British art work for sale and the quality of its presentation with all the pictures being framed on site by the owner Robin Ashmore.
The Gallery specialises in original paintings of the Peak District’s varied landscapes of dramatic edges and moorlands of the White Peak and the Dark Peak, and well-known villages, such as Bakewell, home of the Bakewell Pudding, and Eyam, the famous plague village, by regional and national artists.
The landscape pictures represent a broad range of media – watercolour paintings, acrylics and oil paintings, with pastel and pencil drawings, monoprints and landscape photography, including a selection of limited editions and prints.
The Gallery also features some distinctive Russian Art in the form of still life watercolours and collectible Russian miniatures of lacquer boxes depicting scenes from folk tales. All are displayed in a spacious, well-lit area alongside ceramics and sculpture.
There are regular art exhibitions by Derbyshire artists, Sheffield artists and Manchester artists and special featured displays of themed contemporary work.
