Coastal Contemporary Gallery opened in May of 2018. Renovations were completed just in time to install exhibition number one and stick the landing for the Volvo Ocean Race touring Newport. In 2021, we celebrated the completion of our third year on lower Thames with a salon-style show featuring our gallery artists. The mask mandate had just been lifted and it was as if the 'ON' button was pushed; the city came alive, buzzing with all sorts of activity. Despite engines roaring, a rabbit crossed the street and attempted to enter the gallery that night.
