Focus Gallery began in 1971 with Norman Roland at the helm. Since then Focus has continued to grow and thrive and establish itself as Nottingham's most respected and well known place for beautiful and unusual art and crafts. In 2004 Lorraine and Angelo Murphy became the proud owners of Focus Gallery and took the opportunity to take the gallery onto the next level, by introducing a wealth of fresh talent, whilst continuing to showcase long term exhibitors and makers whose reputation and talents continue to be admired and in demand.
I'm proud to say that Focus has been a stockist of my work for a couple of years now and I love popping in to see Lorraine and Angelo and have a look at the work they have on show. This is exactly what I did last week and also had a gander at their fantastic Summer Exhibition, featuring work of some of my very favourite local artists, Helen Hallows, Josephine Gomersall, Helen Rhodes, Katrin Moye and Gillian Lee Smith.
