ARK @ The Cloisters Gallery:

ARK is a unique gift gallery based in the West Cloisters at the foot of Boroughgate in the market town of Appleby in Westmorland. The gallery specialises in the sale of unique and original arts and crafts work by the area’s leading artisans and is run as a community venture by professional artists; Grace Rigby and Karen West.

The gallery was first established in September 2015 in response to the need for a gallery that would promote professional talent in the area. It also forms an artistic hub and information point for artists and visitors.

The gallery invites professional and aspiring Cumbrian artists to exhibit and sell their work both within the gallery, online, and at external art fairs and events.

At our gallery we pride ourselves on a warm welcome and a helpful approach. Drop in at any time to find out more about just what we do…
