“There was no art in the house I grew up in, there was no bathroom either. I failed my art exams so when the gallery opened its doors 25 years ago it must have been destiny. I can think of no other reason. All consuming, impossible and exhilarating at the same time it soon became a way of life, a thrilling journey that I couldn’t have done on my own.”
Lynne has consistently curated diverse, hand-picked exhibitions, showcasing talent from across the British Isles. Her unique style and eclectic taste means she has played a part in helping many Cantabrigians adorn their walls with incredible and timeless pieces, and she continues to do so in 2015.
The Gallery forms part of a 19 century National School which was converted into a house and showroom in the 1970’s. It sits in the centre of the picturesque historic village high street between the popular Ancient Shepherds public house and the Church of St Mary the Virgin, first recorded in 1217.
Alterations to the building in the 1990’s created light and airy spaces ideal for showing contemporary paintings and sculpture in an intimate domestic setting.
Lynne Strover Gallery can be found on Stand C4a in the Large Hall at the 3rd edition of the Cambridge City Art Fair.
