Sea Study with Small Clouds - watercolour 1972

Gavagan Art

Welcome to Gavagan Art. We specialise in Contemporary and Modern British Art. We are currently operating exclusively online.

A programme of temporary exhibitions and related events of both emerging and established artists are held each year. We work with artists from throughout the British Isles with a particular emphasis on artists from the North of England.

Gavagan Art was founded by Mary Gavagan in 2010 and was based in the market town of Settle, North Yorkshire from 2010 – 2020.

Please note, starting in 2021, Gavagan Art will operate initially online only. We hope that our regular visitors and clients will continue to follow our temporary exhibition programme.

More information and art works yet to be added. (We have included our past six temporary exhibitions to the site, and have yet to add an archive of a selection of previous exhibitions.)
