Centrepiece - Various Artists

As the shortest day of the year approaches the 21st December, and the hours of daylight are reduced, the wintry weather causes many of us to spend more time indoors. If you are looking for a centrepiece, a large statement ceramic or a painting, drawing or print to be a focal point in a room, there are a number of art works both abstract and figurative available which you may like to consider. Alternatively if you are looking for small treasures there are a range of artworks which can be viewed.

These are just a selection from the unique works on our Gavagan Art website.

In recent months we have sent paintings and also ceramics and jewellery to various locations around Britain. Transport can be arranged for purchases both in the north of England and further afield.

Own Art can be used to purchase most work on our site please ask if you are interested in using this method to buy work, interest free.

The monoprint here by Herefordshire based Adrienne Craddock titled Eve and the Birds, recalls Picasso’s Dove of Peace.
