Did you know that Matt also does photo-restoration?

Loads of us have boxes of old photographs – some passed down from previous generations and others taken in our youth. For those of us around in the 1960’s, many of our childhood pictures are imprisioned on slides, rarely seeing the light of day. All these precious memories can be given a new lease of life and shared round the family.

Using a special technique, Matt photographs the image and converts it to a high quality digital image. Using his expert photohop skills Matt can then remove blemishes, improve clarity and bring out details that you never know were there. Prints can then be made to fit your frames or of course, you can commission Matt to make you a frame.

Christmas orders by December 11th please.

‘Shoreline’: a selection by Matt Gartside

Here is a mini online exhibition of some of Matt’s artworks that were in the Shoreline Exhibition. Many of them are available as cards as well as prints. They are all printed individually by Matt and are from £40 unframed to £100 mounted and framed. The frames are beautifully made by Matt from recycled oak floorboards and will compliment all homes, from the traditional to the avant garde.



Trawden Arts Trail 26th and 27th October 2019

I will be at Trawden Arts Trail at the end of October, organised by Trawden Artists and Makers. You can find me in the primary school showing my photography and framing. There will be other artists at the school as well as displays by the children, so well worth calling in. There will be 50 artists on the trail, so a great arty day out.


Winter Holidays

We are now closed until the middle of February. We are still about though, painting, taking photographs and tarting up the gallery so if you want to call in, just get in touch and arrange a time. In the mean time, here’s a small slide show of some of what went on in 2019.

Winter Closure

We will be closed from 23rd December, all of January and the first half of February. Exact day of re-opening TBC. Opening by appointment still available though.


We are joining forces with our fellow artists at Soughbridge Mill, to get you away from Amazon and shopping locally and artily this Christmas! On Saturday and Sunday 10th and 11th of November we are hanging up the fairy lights, warming up the mulled wine and opening our studio doors. You will be able to buy direct from the artist unique, original and quality gifts, with items to suit all purses.

Of course, here at Studio22B we are open every weekend anyway, so if you can’t make it on the 10th/11th please call in another time.

Of course we realise that buying art as a gift can be a tricky. Therefore, we are happy to exchange any Studio22B prezzies (excluding commissioned frames and repro) after Christmas for an item of equivelent value.

In the meantime, here are some winter scenes from us which make lovely Xmas cards. All our cards are £2 each or three for £5. As an additional yuletide offer, we are also doing six cards for £9 – just £1.50 each.

If you are going to Colne Blues Festival this weekend, you might want to take in the Pop Up Gallery too.  This is the second year Aly has transformed her home into a gallery. If you wish to rest your ears whilst exercising the eyeballs, its the ideal location! Delicious homemade cakes and brews are also on offer from only £1:

Menu (as looking at moment – may vary on the day)
Vegan chocolate cake £1 a Slice
Spanish almond and orange cake (gluten free)£1.50 a slice
Banana Bread £1 a Slice
Cheese and Courgette Scones £1.50 each
Tea – regular and various herbals £1 a cup

At least half a dozen professional local artists will be showing in the gallery. As well as originals there will also be limited edition prints and cards. This is an ideal opportunity to see art in a domestic setting as opposed to the more sterile setting of a gallery.
