The People's Gallery is a large, open space situated in the lower level of Kendal's celebrated museum, one of the oldest in Britain.
CURRENT EXHIBITION: My Journey to Forty Farms, an exhibition of photography by Amy Bateman
Visit the new exhibition by Amy Bateman in our People's Gallery from the 16th of November until the 23rd of March 2024. Amy is British Life Photographer of the Year. She is the author and photographer behind the Lakeland Book of the Year – 'Forty Farms.'
A storytelling, photographic exhibition detailing Amy's journey from stay-at-home Mum, based on her family's farm outside Kendal – to award winning photographer. This Kendal based farmer tells her unique backstory through her images. Culminating in some of the Forty Farms exhibition which is continuing to celebrate agriculture here in our cherished landscapes. Included are some early works and unique pieces with the opportunity to purchased some limited pieces.
With around a hundred square metres of space, the gallery is well lit and has architectural features dating back to its previous life as a wool warehouse, including the original stone-flagged floor.
Regional artists know all too well how few spaces are available to show their work, so the recent opening of this large gallery space in Kendal is an exciting new addition to the Lakeland arts scene.
Since re-opening in June 2022, the gallery has already celebrated the abstract printmaking of Jess Levine, photographic work by Colin Reynolds, the exquisite minimalist etchings of Jamie Barnes, and Mike Healey's exciting exhibition of surrealism.
