Well House Gallery, High Road, Horndon on the Hill, Stanford-le-Hope SS17 8LF

We are a family-run art gallery located in the historic village of Horndon on the Hill. We are Thurrock's first permanent dedicated gallery space; certainly it's the only one that we currently know of!

We have re–opened after the second lockdown.

We are open 10am -12, 1-4pm , Mon, Tues, Thur, Fri.

Closed Wednesday

Saturday 10 am – 12.

Our last day of opening before Christmas is 19th December and we will be open 10am – 3pm on that day for last minute shoppers.

We now have a new website! www.wellhousegallery.co.uk

As artists we have kept painting during lockdown so we are pleased to have some gorgeous things for sale ready to gift wrap for free on the day of purchase.

Any queries – contact [email protected]

Thankyou to all our customers and Artists for their support this year!

Connecting Art Lovers with Art:

The gallery provides a place to enjoy fine and contemporary art, to browse,

to be inspired, and to buy pieces that you connect with.

Championing Local Artists:

We are here to take your art beyond the stage of a hobby or a dream,

providing an outlet to sell your work and help fund your creativity.

Celebrating Creativity in the Community:

Building on several years of running the '24-7 Create' exhibitions in Stanford-le-Hope and the Thurrock Art Trail,

the gallery is a place where people can gather to share their love of art and creativity. Several workshops now take place in the village Woolmarket building next door throughout the week and across the year.

What kind of works do we display?

We have a classic 'white box' gallery space where we can display pictures and sculpture, and a shop area for smaller works, ceramics, cards, and handmade jewellery. Within these spaces we are able to display artists' work on an ongoing basis and also hold themed exhibitions or solo and group shows. Everything that we display is current work by artists we have a personal connection with.

Great art has the ability to encourage and inspire the human spirit, and also sometimes to challenge and disturb. Our aim is that everything we display will do the first of these in some way, and we are sure that at least some of the work we show will also do the second. To keep a consistent feel and ethos we will not necessarily take every piece we are offered – but if your work isn't right for us we can sometimes help you to find a venue for it elsewhere.

How does it work commercially?

Like all galleries, we will have costs to cover like creating the space, heating and lighting, business rates, staff costs… and that's before we sell a single piece. Artists do not have to pay to exhibit their work with us, but we take a commission on pieces that we sell.
