Stuart Long has been a constant exhibitor at Beckstones Art Gallery for a number of years. Born in 1962, he has had a lifelong interest in landscape painting. Stuart Long is principally self-taught and his technique has developed into a recognisable style combining freshness with strength of colour. The ‘wet into wet‘ process is used to create the soft reflections which characterise his work. Stuart Long first started painting in oils but later turned to watercolour and specialises in Lakeland landscapes and other mountain scenes. His work has been exhibited extensively in the UK, and Stuart Long’s many collectors come from as far afield as the U.S.A., Japan and South Africa.
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.
