Adrian Hill Fine Art
Muddy Says: “Hidden away in Lees Yard, Holt – Adrian Hill Fine Art is perhaps one of the town’s best-kept secrets and is a most inspirational place to discover. Grab a coffee in the Espresso bar and enjoy this light and airy space whilst perusing some fabulous original works of art.
Adrian Hill Fine Art showcases some of the finest paintings selected from the Royal Academy, Royal Institutes, Federations and Societies.
The light and airy space is perfectly suited to exhibit original works of art and Adrian Hill represents many contemporary artists providing a changing exhibition of new works.
The collection is carefully selected and includes a diverse portfolio of works from Modern British painters such as Sir Alfred Munnings RA, Dame Laura Knight DBE RA RWS and Edward Seago RWS RBA add to the prestige and offering of this Fine Art gallery.
Managing Director, Adrian Hill, has been in the art industry for over a decade and owns two art galleries. His other Gallery, Picturecraft, also based in Lees Yard, was opened in 1972 by his father and grandparents and was Holt’s first independent art exhibition space and frequented by Lawrence Stephen Lowry RA during the 1970’s.
Since opening the Fine Art gallery Adrian has hosted two major solo sell out exhibitions for Rosa Sepple PRI at the prestigious Mall Galleries in London, written numerous art publications for Halsgrove Publishing and is currently co-writing a history of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours due to be published in 2019.
The gallery house a wonderful little expresso bar, so perfect for taking some time out and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
Despite being in the busy historic Georgian town of Holt, Lees Yard is perhaps one of the town’s best-kept secrets. Tucked away behind traditionally built cottages, Lees Yard can be quite difficult to find. There are two entrances, one leading directly off Bull Street (which can be found at plaque number 12 on the Holt Owl Trail) or by the pedestrianised brick weave pathway leading through wrought-iron gates from the Albert Street Car Park. Both galleries are fully accessible for visitors in wheel chairs.
