The Pinkfoot Gallery is on the stunning North Norfolk coast in a village called Cley next the Sea. We specialise in Modern British Nature and always have a wide range of paintings and sculptures on view. We are a friendly and approachable gallery, and like all the shops in Cley, we are open every day. There is a large, free car park by the village hall so you can leave the car and explore the delights of Cley on foot.

We are pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition of works by Stephen Page. The main inspiration for the work in 'Entities' comes from an interest in art and artefacts from throughout human history that reflect our changing relationship with animals.

Working from his studio in the Tanat Valley in Mid Wales, Page creates iconic sculptures which are cast in bronze through the lost wax process and finally coloured through the chemical process of patination in a variety of tones, hues and marble effects. Page exhibits nationally and internationally and his work is included in collections in the UK and worldwide.

July, 2022

We are excited to be exhibiting Suzanne Lawrence's latest body of work 'The Shape of Colours'. Whilst out painting, Suzanne spends time immersing herself into the landscape, listening to the sounds around her.  Often finding hidden flashes of colour within different natural objects. Her exhibition is about these exciting moments where you can see colour, pattern and line within the landscape. 


Suzanne comes from a Norfolk farming family and has grown up with an ingrained understanding of the ever-changing weather on the local landscape. Throughout Suzanne's work, there's a constant sense of the elements, whether it's a slight breeze in the reeds or a full-scale hoolie over the marsh, with her confident brush marks and sympathetic palette, Suzanne really encapsulates her landscape.

Rachel Lockwood, North Norfolk, Moving Light

North Norfolk, Moving Light,  Rachel Lockwood 


15-29th April 2022

 

This latest collection of paintings from Rachel really illustrates the love and understanding she has for her local wildlife and landscape. During the uncertainty of recent times, Rachel repeatedly sought the calming influence of the great outdoors. In her own words, “Nature helps me keep anchored to what is real. The last two years have been unpredictable and unsettling and with the current climate of uncertainty and recurrent bad news, keeping connected to nature really helps me cope. Nature is real and tangible in an unsettling and unpredictable world”.

 

Rachel studio is on the edge of Cley, she has cultivated a wildness around her and made homes for a variety of life, including owls, deer, hares and plenty of birdlife. Rachel’s painting routine includes daily walks from the studio, encompassing farmland, forest and heath to marsh, coastline and reedbeds. Her fascination with the ever-changing skycapes explains the 12 new landscape paintings included in this exhibition.

 

There is a lot of emotion in Rachel’s work, from the owlets sat waiting for the parents return to the deer fleeing an unseen danger. And with the bold marks and colours in the landscapes, you get a feeling of the mood of the artist.

Dafila Scott Spring 2022 Exhibition

26th March - 9th April, 2022

We are very excited to announce our upcoming spring exhibition by Dafila Scott. With over 30 paintings to view, this exhibition includes a wide-ranging mix of Dafila's work over the past couple of years. From paintings of her Antarctic expedition in 2020, to fen and marshland landscapes closer to home. This exhibition promises to be an unmissable glimpse into Dafila's world.

We feel very lucky to be showing some of her paintings from her recent tour on the Ross Sea Voyage in February 2020, where she was able to observe and record the ever-changing landscapes, wildlife and ice formations. On her return, Dafila spent three months painting from her sketches and memories of her trip to the Antarctic, which have subsequently proved very popular among her collectors.

The Lockdown Dozen by Robert Gillmor, MBE, PPSWLA

Robert is back! 

Against the odds, during the first lockdown from March 2020 Robert Gillmor spent his time designing new screen prints.

However, with the help of his daughter Emily Gillmor and print technician Jo Stafford and, of course, the support of his wife Sue, these 12 special screen prints have finally been completed. Robert has had to find a new way to work and his strong sense of design and love of birds is ever present.

Brush & Palette, Andrew Haslen

22nd May - 5th June 2021

We've been looking forward to this exhibition. Many of you will be familiar with Andrew's work but not this new style which he mastered during lockdown.  The freedom and intuitive marks Andrew manages to achieve with his palette knife have created an exceptional body of work.
