Kooroon Gallery did not just happen.  Glenda Gibson was asking what to do next for the Artists she and Donna Drouin had been encouraging.  Their work needed to be shown to the world and be for sale so they could continue to afford to be artists. Kooroon Gallery started in the dinning room of Glenda’s home as an experiment.  A small but faithful following developed who have followed her to a new venue.  

Dian Harrison dreamed of using her home for something more. An artist herself she had a purpose-built studio for teaching classes so she relocated her living to upstairs so she could free up space for a gallery down stairs.  Kooroon was the first to exhibit in this wonderful and well lit space.  Most not seen from the street so come on in and have a good look. 

Glenda is working on portraits of Artists for the next exhibition and Dian is creating new work.

Glenda will run a workshop on 4 Jan from 1-3pm.  Acrylic painting using ideas from Este MacLoud.  £15 with all material provided.  Booking essential.

Donna Drouin Exhibition

Kooroon Gallery at OSH

Kooroon Gallery’s September offer is the annual Donna Drouin Solo Exhibition, again featuring new work by this prolific painter and printmaker. Exciting and quirky her new pieces relate to her relationship with the natural world especially trees, sky, lichen and birds. She utilises various media including dry point, lino, gelliprint, acrylics, gold leaf and oil pastorals as well as creating artists’ books and sculptural explorations.
