The Artists, the Designers and the Makers
Since 2005, the Tower House Gallery has represented the artists and craftspeople of the Welsh Marches (and further afield). We take our name from Knighton’s clock tower, one of many such in Wales that arrived in the mid-nineteenth century along with the railways. The gallery is a resource for local people and for the wider community, whether based in England or Wales, and has regular exhibitions throughout the year with a permanent selection of jewellery, ceramics, glass and paintings.
Artists and makers who have exhibited at include Lois Hopwood, Faine Meynell, Roger Bradley, Lesley Connolly, Jemima Jameson, Lesley Wootton, Islwyn Watkins, Ron Jones, David Spencer Stoves and printmakers Pauline Bradley and Susan Attwood.
As a social enterprise (and as far as we know the only one in Knighton) we are committed to our community and regularly offer space to young artists. Not only does this give them confidence but may also be a useful addition to a CV.
We are also a venue for talks and demonstrations. There is nothing more delightful than seeing a whole class of primary school children sitting spellbound on the shop floor listening to local storyteller and graphic designer, Grant Jesse; Presteigne artist, June Coveney, explaining the stories behind her vibrant paintings and David Stoves, who was once botanical recorder for Shropshire, demonstrating his delicate watercolours.
