Zimmer Stewart Gallery
When Zimmer Stewart Gallery opened in 2003 it was the only gallery in this small market town nestling between the Downs and the sea; now there are five. Arundel has had for a while had a reputation for creativity and the arts generally (visual, dramatic and musical), so there is much to interest visitors. Right from the start Zimmer Stewart Gallery did not shy away from showing challenging work.
James Stewart, founder, says:
“If all visitors to the gallery liked everything we showed, then I would feel that we were doing something wrong. We enjoy selecting work that has integrity and is thought provoking. Artists want their work to be seen and we love showing it”.
Solo exhibitions include both emerging and established artists, many of whom have worked with the gallery for over a decade. This allows collectors (corporate and individual) to see how the artists’ work has evolved over time, and the artists to present new cohesive bodies of work. The group exhibitions are great for showing visitors the wide range of work exhibited, but also give the gallery the chance to introduce new artists as well.
John Zimmer says:
“We know that people buy art for a number of different reasons: to start or add to a collection; to support local artists; or simply to decorate their home or office. Their choice is usually determined by an emotional response to the work or subject portrayed.”
In any year, Zimmer Stewart Gallery’s programme includes six solo exhibitions and several mixed group shows, including large sculpture pieces in the garden during the Summer months.
Our website includes a full exhibition programme and an online shop for editions. Visitors and collectors are encouraged to join its email newsletter list to receive private view invitations and artist news updates.
