Southwick art enthusiast Martyn Slade realises his dream at the end of the month when he opens his own art gallery in a converted garage at his home in Trowbridge.

Mr Slade, who lives at Greenhill Cottage, Broker- swood Road, Southwick, said the gallery will specialise in original artwork, with contributors from the local area and as far afield as Skye and Orkney.

The gallery will show paintings, sculpture, stained glass, ceramics and more.

It will be open Wednesday to Friday from 10am-6pm, Saturday, 10am-5pm, and Sunday, 10am-4am.

Mr Slade said: “There is something for everybody and I have tried to tailor the gallery to suit a range of tastes and budgets, but never at the cost of quality.

“I’m hoping it will be well received.”
