Italian artist Antonio Iannicelli was born in Naples in 1952 and now lives and works in Castelvorturno, a little further to the north. As a boy he showed great artistic talent which he developed taking his surroundings, the sea and the people of Naples as his inspiration. Antonio Iannicelli excels in painting coastal landscapes. Working exclusively in oils he looks for the unusual aspect and then paints it with expressive immediacy. His paintings have clarity but with a touch of impressionism and well reflect the mood, warmth and scenery of this beautiful area and particularly the Amalfi coast and similar Italian coastal resorts. Antonio Iannicelli has staged about 20 exhibitions in Italy and around Europe and has won numerous awards and prizes. Iannicelli’s paintings are in many public and private 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.
