Artshed – One of three artists that founded Artshed
Started in November 2003 by three local artists, Artshed has gone from strength to strength. The gallery’s innovative approach to the selling of original art has given many artists the opportunity and independence of exhibiting in a commercial gallery without the extortionate costs normally associated with going it alone. Artshed hosted its first Contemporary Art & Sculpture Fair in May 2004, exhibiting work by over 150 artists including original prints by some leading 20th Century artists including Picasso, Tracey Emin, Howard Hodgkin, Chris Ofilli, Anita Klein amongst others.
