Born in Belfast in 1959 into an artistic family Patricia Turner began her professional career as an artist at the age of 18 exhibiting at the Royal Ulster Academy.
Painting in oils, Patricia Turner’s work covers many varied subjects from landscapes of Ireland and the Lake District to beach scenes and paintings of children. Patricia Turner’s warmly lit work has an autobiographical feel that communicates a deeply personal empathy with her subject matter.
Over the last 25 years Patricia Turner’s work has been exhibited extensively in London, Belfast and beyond. She lives in the Lake District with her husband and two daughters.
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.
OPEN EVERY DAY
