In 1912 a further shop was purchased next door to expand into selling art materials. In 1925 a further shop opened in Ramsgate.

Having followed the arts for many years they feel it is about time they put some of their ideas into practice. We hope you enjoy Green Chair Gallery.
I'm a contemporary artist, living and working in the Kent countryside, near the coast. I'm inspired by the natural world, and intrigued by the many ways we find to interpret and control it. I'm drivenby a curiosity about the past, and a keen interest to know how we make stories to understand our history and our place in the world now.
