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.

Call Matt on 07803 151699 or email him on mattjgartside@gmail.com




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.

Farfield Mill

Aly is doing a tempory ‘Artist in Residence’ gig at Farfield Mill near Sedbergh until the end of May. This will then hopefully be followed up by an exhibition inspired by her time there, sometime in 2019. She will be there half the week and at Studio22B the other half. The days of the week will vary as to when she is there, so if you particularly want to see her just get in touch to find out when she is next there. You can also find out the latest on her facebook page as well on Farfield Mill’s facebook page.

All invited: ‘Flora and Fauna’ Exhibition Preview Evening.

SAVE THE DATE! Our next exhibition opens on Sunday 3rd June at 7.30pm. We will be celebrating the natural world in pixels and paint, from macro studies of flowers to trees to vistas. Expect colour, texture and detail from both of us. The exhibition will then be up for a month before moving on to Garstang Arts Centre. Why not join the Facebook event page here, to keep up with all the latest plus sneak previews.
