VK Gallery in St Ives, Cambridgeshire is my longest serving gallery, and has just celebrated its fifth birthday.
I'd like to send them huge thanks for supporting me from the beginning. I don't get out there as often as I'd like, but I urge you to go visit. The art is well chosen and the displays really well done too. St Ives is interesting for a day out also.
VK Gallery was opened by Victoria K Mudge in September 2014. Victoria says, 'I have wanted to run my own gallery for a long time prior to finding the courage to do it. With the experience gained at my previous work within the Gallery and Arts sector, and a huge amount of encouragement and support from my family, I opened VK, taking what I feel are the good bits of all the other galleries I've worked at with me to make VK the success it is today."
She also says 'It's still a young business so we're still learning, but I think we've found our niche and the support from other local businesses and customers in and around St Ives has been fundamental to this. I feel grateful every day for their continued support.'
Their website is also well laid out and has a section focussing on each craft. Here's a link to the jewellery page ( scroll to the bottom to see my bit!)
