Established in 2003 by James Stewart (photographed by Jonathan Wilson) and John Zimmer, the Zimmer Stewart Gallery shows emerging and established contemporary artists through a programme of 6-8 exhibitions each year.
James Stewart curates each exhibition, except Guest Artist exhibitions (see below and Our Services). Having come from an accounting background, rather than art history, he can relate to both browsers and collectors: Before opening the gallery he collected contemporary art and enjoyed visiting art galleries and museums in London (as well as further afield) for 20 years.
We want visitors to feel free to come in a see the work on show, talk about it frankly and let us have their honest opinion. We are here to showcase art in many forms, and bring new artists to West Sussex. If all visitors liked every exhibition we would not be doing this right!
Tastes vary, but we also hope that viewers keep an open mind to new concepts.
Then if you like what you see you might want to start or add to your own contemporary art collection. Our Art Buyers Guide can help with this.
Having been in business now since 2003, we know that we cannot "sell" contemporary art - you either love a piece or you don't. It is our job to present the work well, inform visitors about the artists and their work and let the art speak for itself. See some Testimonials from our first decade.
Work on show includes paintings, original prints, ceramics, sculpture & textiles. They would all be suitable for the home and many for an office environment as well (see Our Services).
