Gallery at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre

Local Shropshire artists on display

Visit our gallery and cafe gallery to view amazing works of art by local artists and crafts people inspired by the beautiful landscape of the Shropshire Hills. The exhibitions change every 4-6 weeks and many of the pieces are available for purchase. You can visit the exhibition 7 days a week 10am-5pm.

Shelly Slark - Original seascapes in mixed media 

Born in Surrey, with a passion for the outdoors, Shelly Slark's series of seascapes document her love of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from Aberdovey to Anglesey. Sensitive compositions in acrylic on canvas, she enhances her interpretations by adding texture with grains of sand, watercolour and ink.
Now a happy resident of South Shropshire where she moved with her two sons, Shelly is enjoying experimenting with printing techniques and photography; capturing Puffins on Skomer, and dramatic sunsets in the surrounding countryside. She is quite content to camp on the sand with her sketch book in hand.

Deborah Bird – Outside the Box

Outside the Box, is Deborah Bird’s first  exhibition of 20 watercolours.  Deborah is inspired by  Landscape, place and wildlife, atmosphere, colour and movement.  Deborah has adapted  different watercolour approaches to creating surface techniques. She says  “I love allowing my brain to flow with the painting and not be too fixed.”


10am – 5pm
Free entry. All pieces on display available to purchase
