New Artworks by Andy Tuohy

Lombard Street Gallery Margate Andy Tuohy Dreamland Quex Lido

Following extensive refurbishment the Dreamland Cinema building has been returned to its former glory, complete with neon signs and lighting and artist Andy Tuohy has been inspired to create this image of the building at night to extend his Thanet series.

Built in 1819 to house a twelve bell peel made at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry which was too big for the local church, Waterloo Tower in the grounds of Quex Park in Birchington-on-Sea commemorates Wellington’s men. Designer and illustrator Andy Tuohy perfectly captures the history of the tower in a new artwork available from Lombard Street Gallery, with animals from the dioramas making an appearance in the grounds.

The companion Thanet images include Lido, Cliftonville and the Broadstairs Lift.

Each image is available in an edition of 100, signed and stamped by the artist at £175 unframed and £255 framed for the Dreamland Cinema, Margate image and £160 unframed, £240 framed for the others. Take advantage of Own Art, an Arts Council initiative to spread the cost of your purchase over 10 months

United Society of Artists Summer Exhibition

Lombard Street Gallery Margate United Society of Artists

We are delighted to be co-hosting the Summer Exhibition of United Society of Artists, which will take place in our gallery and at Pie Factory Margate from Saturday 17 to Sunday 25 June 2017.
The Society is defined by a diversity and openness to ideas.  This is what makes it so welcoming to new artists and always makes for an exciting and eclectic mix of styles and media.  This exhibition is jointly hosted with Pie Factory Margate.

Any exhibition of work by UA members is always an exciting and eclectic mix of artistic media. Styles range from representational to abstraction and conceptual. UA members cover a diverse range of approaches including figurative, impressionist and expressionist. This diversity and openness to ideas is what helps to make the UA distinctive in character and so welcoming to new artists.

Nick Kelly: Fundraising Exhibition

Looking to raise money for Marie Curie, Nick Kelly will be taking part in a ten day challenge trek in the Himalayan foothills. His exhibition currently in Lombard Street Gallery, which has been created over a period of 8 months during walks along the Kent coast, will play a major part in raising funds for the charity event. This is an opportunity to acquire a Nick Kelly original work at a very special price for a very special cause and was given a great start with the launch event on Saturday 8 April…thank you to all who came along and Isle Magazine, the Thanet Extra, The Isle of Thanet News and BBC South East for the articles, helping to bring people through the door…
