Dennis Rothwell Bailey has been a constant exhibitor at Beckstones Art Gallery for many years and he has a large number of avid collectors. Born in 1933, his earliest childhood memories recall a strong inclination towards drawing. Dennis Rothwell Bailey trained at the Bolton School of Art starting his career in commercial art which included spells in advertising agencies, publishing houses and commercial studios. Dennis Rothwell Bailey commenced full-time landscape painting in 1976 and is equally adept with either oils or watercolours. Although he paints a variety of landscape subjects, Dennis Rothwell Bailey is particularly well known for his paintings of the magnificent Lake District. His work now features in collections in the USA, Europe and Australia, and many are included in the collection of Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel on Ullswater. Dennis Rothwell Bailey’s paintings have been exhibited at the Royal Institute and the Royal Watercolour Society Open Exhibitions, and several Dennis Rothwell Bailey works have been published.
If approaching the gallery from Penrith or the M6 heading East on the A66 there is a major diversion in place to the gallery via Motherby. Instead of this we would recommend taking the first turning right to Newbiggin shortly after the Rheged roundabout, follow the road through the village and then turn left as you come out of the village. Follow the road up the hill past the recycling centre and turn right at the bend where you will see our brown tourist board sign, follow the lane and signs to the gallery. Altenatively take B5288 from Penrith to Greystoke turning left left to the gallery less than a quarter of a mile out of Greystoke.
Otherwise please follow the diversion signs on the A66 - they will successfully get you here but it will take 10 minutes longer.
