The Artism Gallery

8 Market Place is a late 18th or early 19th century house incorporating a 19th century shop front and reusing timbers of medieval or 17th century origin. The second-storey wall has ghost advertising (partially obscured) which relates to its past use as Ladies and Gents Tailors.

In 2010 it was a coffee shop after which it became the "Vintage Style Agency" and then the "Teenage Market". In March 2015 it was home to the vintage clothes shop "Loyal Retro".

The latest occupant is The Artism Gallery run by Brin Morris who creates sellotape sculptures some of which can be seen sitting in the window looking out at the Market Hall (aka the Glass Umbrella).

The gallery displays artwork from local artists and runs interactive workshops. More information can be found on their Facebook page.

  1. Fine looking sculptures, but odd that the male is naked, but the female is fully clothed. Looks like an interesting gallery.

  2. Sellotape sculptures now that is a new one for me. Like the look of the building with its long history.

  3. Lovely building ~ and varied history ~ wonderful shot!

    Happy Week to you,
