As we’re sure you can imagine, the Cumbrian landscape has long been praised by artists, poets, writers and illustrators alike for its natural beauty and as a place to restore wellbeing and enjoy the great outdoors. Today’s artistic community here in Cumbria and the Lake District is made up of painters, sculptors, potters, photographers and many more besides. Inspired by the ever-changing colours of the county as we move through the seasons, there has never been more choice of art to choose from here to adorn your home, office, give as gifts or feature in local galleries.
Art itself is such a subjective discipline but so many of the artists in Cumbria bring ideas to life that encompass the breathtaking landscapes, stunning topography and bountiful natural resources here through a wide variety of mediums. Galleries here are filled with photographs that encapsulate elements of Cumbria perfectly. The art available to peruse and buy ranges from landscape watercolours to more modern pop art, oil paintings of the changing seasons and mixed medium artworks celebrating our stunning county.
With so many creative people finding resonance with the county of Cumbria, works of art can be found throughout. In addition to displays by local artists, art exhibitions and shops and markets selling art, there are workshops on offer here that offer visitors and residents to create their own works of art. From creating ceramics to painting porcelain, watercolour and life drawing classes, introductions to using oils and how to use different techniques to produce unique artworks, the creativity in Cumbria knows no bounds. And we’re more than happy to share it!
Take a little piece of Cumbria home with you, give it as a gift or keep it for yourself, just know that our special place has inspired the art you hold, and we hope you cherish it as much as we do.
