Tucked away in the village of Chalford on the slopes of the Cotswold escarpment is one of Gloucestershire’s best-kept secrets. On what was once a Victorian industrial site at the heart of the Golden Valley next to the River Frome, Gallery Pangolin opened its doors over twenty years ago.
Its initial inspiration was the need to showcase the excellent sculpture cast by the adjacent Pangolin Editions art foundry; it was only later discovered to be coincidentally reviving a 19th century traditional association between foundry and gallery.
Gallery Pangolin has since grown rapidly and has an exciting programme which includes themed and one-man shows, publications, lectures and films and collaborations with other galleries and museums. It also co-ordinates public commissions, curates exhibitions and acts as an agent for artists and collectors.
One of the few galleries to specialise in sculpture and related drawings, Gallery Pangolin now has an established reputation for works of quality and excellence by both Modern and contemporary artists and is open to visitors six days a week.
