Alan Reed Studio and Gallery
The Alan Reed Studio & Gallery opened in January 2003 to provide Alan with a place to paint and exhibit some of his original paintings and limited edition prints in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. It's a place where you can meet Alan to discuss commissions and other painting projects or simply browse at your own leisure. You can buy greetings cards, a small gift, or commission Alan to paint your favourite place as a personal treat to yourself or loved one for that special occasion. This gallery is a participant in the Arts Council’s “Own Art” scheme which aims to make it easy and affordable for everyone to buy contemporary works of art.
