Naked Norfolk at the The Coal Shed Gallery
Featuring several WNAA artists and some new surprising talent.
The Coal Shed Gallery in Hunstanton returns to its former glory as an art gallery! ‘A right little treasure trove of Norfolk talent!’
Located along Le Strange Terrace in Hunstanton, the Coal Shed Gallery is part of the original railway site which ran from the seaside resort of Hunstanton to the nearby town of King’s Lynn. Following investment from the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk (BCKLWN) in 2008 and support from the Hunstanton and District Civic Society (HDCS), the once derelict building was beautifully converted into an art gallery.
The new tenant of the Coal Shed Gallery, Jacqueline Kitch who ran the art gallery and shop in Westgate, Hunstanton up until the national lockdown in December 2020 says she is “absolutely thrilled to be moving into this beautiful building. My Husband and I love the building and we always make a bee line for it on our walks. I could not believe my luck when I walked past and saw that the building was empty and after making enquiries through the Borough Council and through the Civic Society, I managed to secure a lease. I have lots of local Artists and Artisans coming on board along with some of the old favourites that were previously in the gallery and shop and on the website.
The lockdown has been tough on lots of local businesses and at one time I was ready to just give up but now the Coal Shed Gallery door has opened and I am going to jump straight through it!”
Quote from HDCS ” Hunstanton and District Civic Society is delighted that this iconic building will finally be put to good use. We believe that the art gallery and retail offer will enhance the area and bring vibrancy to Le Strange Terrace”.
