Welcome to Glastonbury Galleries' web site
My name is Ruth Morland and I own this small(ish) gallery and picture framers here in Glastonbury, England, which I have been running, in this format, since September 2004 (although I have been a self-employed picture framer since 1992). My husband Ian is a great collector of antique maps, watercolours, prints and oil paintings and for many years we exhibited at major antique fairs. Now we have the gallery, we are able to show some of them there along with other work by local artists.
This web site contains a selection of our local artist's work such as Norman Parker, John Morland and others. Most of these pictures are inspired by our surrounding countryside in Somerset and of course, the famous Glastonbury Tor. We are also proud to have the amazing art of Ed Org, whose incredibly detailed work is influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and are mostly based upon the epic stories of the past.
The site also contains our collection of Antique Maps that we have for sale, which I hope you will find of interest. I think it's amazing to realize that some of them were actually printed in Elizabethan times (and I mean Elizabeth I)! They can be browsed through by region or you can use the 'search' facility for a more precise result. You may also use the 'search' for your preferred cartographer(s).
You can find out more about our framing services on our dedicated framing website.
