Ingleby Gallery sits gently in the Trent Valley, with some of the hamlet’s cottages dating back to the 16th century. It was originally a Shire horse stable on the Sir Francis Burdett Foremark Estate. It is surrounded by open pasture land extending to the river, with ponds and ducks, a very rural setting with ample parking for visitors.
The Gallery is open for exhibitions of two week’s for artist’s pieces throughout the year, with an ever-changing collection of; paintings by renowned artists including Steven McLoughlin, Steven Tandy, Deb Walker & Lawrie Williamson; sculpture by Tricia Harrison & Sue Riley; ceramics by Karen Fawcett & Julie Wilson, jewellery & glassware all being displayed in a welcoming and vibrant surroundings.
Gill retired from teaching in 1998 and looked to pursue her interest in art and paintings, whilst continuing her love of working and communicating with others. An opportunity arose to convert an old Shire horse stable, next to her home, into a Gallery, and Gill welcomed the opportunity happily. The Gallery has hosted many exhibitions every year since then, usually exhibiting seven to eight artists or sculptors.
She enjoys visiting artists all over the country selecting ones she would like to exhibit but also encourages artistic talent to approach her. Gill believes that she has the best of worlds; living in the countryside, meeting interesting people, continuing her love of art and generally enjoying a lovely retirement.
A man who has spent his life immersed in the world of art, Jeremy has become a full-time artist following his retirement from the post of Director of Art at Repton School.

Originally entitled ‘Derbyshire Journeys’, each of the paintings in the collection recall a moment while travelling or walking in south Derbyshire.

This beautiful county has provided the vistas for the exploration of colour, geometry and the patterns in nature that fuel the compositions of each work.
He will be joined by painter and illustrator, Christian Birmingham and photographer William Bye.
Jeremy will be giving an evening talk at 7pm on Tuesday 12th September ‘The rise of the 19th century independent landscape artist’. You can follow his studio practice on Instagram @bournonjeremy.
