THE DRANG GALLERY
The Drang Gallery first opened its doors in Padstow in January 2011. The Drang Gallery was founded by Justin Easton, whose family have been prominent players on the West Country art stage since 2000. As a business, the gallery is committed to showing works from established and emerging artists. We have the privilege of having a great collection from the well-known Young British Artists. Because of this, we have developed a reputation for supplying the Southwest with cutting-edge art.
We work with the publishers and studios of Marc Quinn and Sir Peter Blake amongst many other talented artists. Alongside this, we showcase contemporary names such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and David Shrigley (to name a few), as well as successful artists such as Dave White, Roy Wright, The Connor Brothers and Elizabeth Waggett. The Drang Gallery strives to keep its displays stimulating, colourful and exciting. We do this by sympathetically blending Modern masters with up and coming stars of the future. With the reputation we have developed for ourselves, we have helped a few artists grow with us. For instance, The Carbon fibre and Formula One sculpture artist Alastair Gibson, Vinyl master Keith Haynes and the late Anthony Amos.
In 2013 we expanded to Salcombe, opening a sister gallery that offered the same extraordinary pieces and artists. From this, the Drang has been nominated by Cornwall Today Awards as a contender for The Best Art Gallery in The South West and further short-listed with for other galleries from the region, which included Tate St.Ives. Since these expansions and achievements, The Drang Gallery have just been growing. We have attended art fairs nationwide and exhibited some of our much-loved artist, Alastair Gibson, in Milan and Geneva.
Our Director has now started a new journey in collaboration with Tess Young Jamieson. Using their collective knowledge to open a contemporary and modern art in a three-storey gallery at the heart of Marlborough, under the name of Young Jamieson Fine Art. We know this is the beginning of an engaging journey, and we are sure there will be many more!
