  • My wife and I have been to The Fosse many times. You won't find a better gallery of contemporary art in the country! The gallery sources new (& old!) artists with extraordinary talent. If you like...  more »

  • I have been visiting (and buying paintings from) this gallery since 1998 and have never been sold a painting! Invariably I have been left to browse without any pressure - if the gallery owner, Sharon, is as busy as usual, either on the phone or with another visitor, well that is normal. I now have walls full of paintings by a wide variety of artists. A few days ago, I took a friend who had not been to the Fosse Gallery before but had been intrigued by what she identified as the development in Lucy Pratt’s work between her previous exhibition in 2016 and the current one. She wanted to see the actual paintings, images of which she had seen in the invitation. Eve was overwhelmed, not only by the paintings but also by the welcome that she received and by Sharon’s knowledge of the artist and the paintings and her willingness to give time to discuss and explain. As a bonus, we were also able to see and talk about the next exhibition, by George Underwood, as many of his paintings were in the gallery, waiting to be hung. By way of an aside, this is a gallery I would have wanted to take students to when I was teaching! The friendly face of art galleries – paintings will be bought but not as a result of even slightly aggressive selling!
  • Fosse Gallery is a highly-regarded and well-established Cotswold favourite. Its knowledgeable gallerist represents some 14 Royal Academicians. Their regular one-man/woman exhibitions, supplemented by those of less well-known artists, with popular Sunday previews are always positively covered by the arts and local media. Prices, styles and subjects vary widely and there is much here to enhance the homes of visitors to this welcoming Stow-on-the-Wold delight.
