You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at the picture for a second and think of it all your life
Ever thought of owning a picture you admire for life? A unique art form in your home that is inspirational and uplifting. Choosing a creation that is appealing and spiritual. After years gaining an impressive artistic and cultural reputation in Sevenoaks, Grierson Galleries has moved, evolved and set up camp in Cranbrook alongside a business hub called The Hive to provide a brand new exciting artistic environment.
Grierson Galleries is not a quiet place. It is a destination that has woken up! Grierson Galleries is changing the landscape, the standard, the way we look at art, and will provide a forum to mix art and business in an entirely new socially interactive environment. Something truly rousing and unique.
The driving force behind the innovative attitude of Grierson Galleries is Annie Watsham and Chris Hounsfield. They believe strongly that the philosophy of creating a new, contemporary gallery with a broader and more meaningful concept, must embrace art from across the globe, but also include innovation from this unbelievably creative region, which is why Grierson Galleries is working and supporting diverse and dynamic artists who want to create a long-standing relationship in the area of the Weald.
How does this work? Located at 19, Stone Street in the beautiful Wealden town of Cranbrook, the new Grierson Galleries has chosen to do something completely innovative. The gallery has teamed up with the business organization The Hive to create a place where ideas meet art; where business meets a social environment; where creativity locks with new enterprise.
Exhibitions and events will be regular, and the entire venture is designed to be flexible: on the business side, hot desking, meeting areas, dining area, working during business hours or after hours socially. Gain advice, talk business, talk art in a truly congenial setting. People from far and wide are encouraged to come to the stunning Wealden town of Cranbrook.

There is a licensed Greek-style café, there are private desks for work, there are open areas to meet, host and do business or just enjoy the ambience. Surrounding you on the walls and in glass cases are momentous pieces of contemporary art from the latest and exciting artists of all media. A truly avant-garde centre for ground-breaking artistic creations.
A new way to do business, socialize, host, create and enjoy the ambience – a venue where art must have a resonance with the audience. Modern art needs to become more accessible to regular people. The creation of spaces which allow unintimidating appreciation of art, is essential.
A room hung with pictures is a room hung with thoughts
