With the aim of challenging popular misconceptions about rural art, the Wishbone Gallery showcases work which would not be expected from a small village gallery.

Celebrating a sense of wonder, curiosity and playfulness, the gallery has a bold vision for exploring contemporary art practices.

The gallery is managed by two artists, multidisciplinary artist Carine Brosse and ceramicist David Ashby, both of whom have their workshop on site.
