Art & Gifts
A wide variety of arts and gifts available from local artists. Come and support local talent at Talent Gallery.
Offering local artists, craftspeople a showcase for their work.
Talent Gallery displays art and crafts by talented people. It shows beautiful works of art, in a variety of media, with a broad range of prices. Some pieces are already framed, other pieces such as prints are sold in mounts, but can be framed by Nico if required.
We offer a complete in-house framing service for the art we sell, as well pieces brought in by the public.
Talent Gallery is a gift shop as well as a gallery. All the giftware is hand-crafted by talented local people. As well as works of art we are delighted to offer: photographic art, prints, glassware, ceramics, turned-wood items and some exquisite jewellery. We also stock a lovely selection of greetings cards, all produced by our artistic community.
Local artists produce the most amazing and varied painting styles. A wide variety available in the gallery.
From glassware to jewellery, door stops to cards. Something for everyone.
Professional picture framing service in store in Wellington. A variety of frames available.
I’m Nico (short for Nicholas Cole) a designer/craftsman with a varied career including running a successful business manufacturing bespoke display cabinets and showcases for London’s major department stores – including Harrods and Selfridges.
More recently I ran a design and marketing consultancy with graphic design and print work being our main activity. Later on, whilst living in Sussex, I acquired a sign-making business. This was an enjoyable and rewarding experience but also quite physically challenging at times. Therefore after a few years I decided it was time to pursue a more leisurely lifestyle, combining my long-held wish to open a gallery and gift shop with our love of the west country – hence Talent Gallery and Wellington.
Why a gallery?
My brother is a professional artist, so is my daughter. One sister is a jewellery maker, another is a glassworker so arts and crafts are in the family. I think Wellington is an excellent town for this venture and ever since I opened I’ve had a fantastic response from the local people.
