Howard Shingler has been a constant exhibitor at Beckstones Art Gallery for some twenty five years and his evocative moonlit oil paintings of the Lake District are extensively collected. Born in Leicestershire in 1953, Howard Shingler became a full-time professional artist in 1984 and in all has some thirty years of painting experience. Howard Shingler is a very versatile artist painting a wide variety of subject-matter ranging from Lakeland and other landscapes to still life, but he has a particular talent for capturing the beauty of the Lake District illuminated by moonlight and it is this ability which has given Howard Shingler so much of his success. Many of his works have been published and he has exhibited widely. Howard Shingler paintings are in collections around the world.
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.
