The Glandore Gallery Website

Glandore Gallery is a natural progression from the Nan Heath Studio which occupied Studio 4 in the Duchy of Cornwall's Porthloo Barn Studio building right next door to Glandore itself from 1989 to 2001. The photo on the left is of Nan and her husband, Frank Smith, on the steps of the Barn Studios with Studio 4 in the background, taken around 1990.

After Nan's sad and untimely death in July 1995, Frank decided to keep the Studio going. Nan's luminous and delicate watercolours of Scilly are very distinctive - she painted nearly 900 watercolours in the twenty five years she lived on Scilly. Glandore Gallery continues to sell Nan Heath printed artwork, lithograph prints, blank cards and postcards.

In 2000, the decision was taken to close Glandore Guest House, move the Nan Heath Studio into the main house, and convert the two top floors to the new luxury Apartments. The Nan Heath Studio became the new Glandore Gallery, opening at Easter 2002, and Nan's nephew, Stephen, himself a talented watercolour artist, became the new Artist-in-Residence. His original watercolours are in great demand and the Gallery now offers a wide range of his high quality giclee prints and greetings cards.

The photo is Stephen finishing off a watercolour painting at the studio easel in the Gallery although, like Nan, he much prefers to do most of his painting outdoors on the spot.
