Firmly established as one of East Anglia’s leading art venues, ‘The Gallery’ in Lees Yard has been instrumental in showcasing the work of artists since opening in 1972 and the first gallery to open in the historic Georgian town of Holt. The award-winning gallery has undergone numerous changes most recently being re-launched and re-branded in September 2019.
The unique display system used at ‘The Gallery’ enables a programme of carefully selected themed six week long exhibitions interspersed with major shows for individual professional artists and recognised Societies, Federations and Institutions. The policy to maintain an exciting, inspirational and stimulating place to visit has attracted interest from artists and visitors from all over the world. The profile of ‘The Gallery’ as a leading venue in East Anglia has secured its rightful position to feature prominently in the regions rich calendar of art events.
Perhaps the biggest change to the dynamics of Lees Yard was instigated by the opening of ‘Adrian Hill Fine Art’ in July 2013. Operating as a completely stand-alone gallery and specialising in artworks selected from members of the Royal Academy, Royal Institutes, Federations and Societies, ‘Adrian Hill Fine Art’ has successfully achieved the need for a special dedicated exhibition area to display the works by some of the greatest names of British Art. Including original pieces by Edward Seago, Sir Alfred Munnings and Laurence Stephen Lowry, (who made a visit to ‘The Gallery’ in 1973) the fine art gallery holds a comprehensive range of contemporary work including pieces by David Hockney, Sir Peter Blake and the President of The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, Rosa Sepple.
The provision of two spacious, contemporary exhibition galleries in Holt, both operating with extensive planned calendars of events, has resulted in high volumes of sales and their popularity as quite unique places to visit.
