Established by the artist Sharon Harvey, The Sanctuary Studio and Gallery is a place to view accomplished works in an intimate and historical setting alongside a working artists studio. 

With a continually changing program of exhibitions, the gallery offers a broad spectrum of work from figurative to abstract and represents artists both mid – career and emerging, local and international. We get to know our represented artists well and understand their methodology and practice. 

We believe art should be both available and accessible to all and wish to provide a welcoming space that is both relaxing and stimulating to the senses. Whether purchasing or just browsing.

"Fabulous to see this historic building being used so creatively to display talented artwork"

About Newnham

Newnham-on-Severn is a beautiful, historic village on the banks of the River Severn next to The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. Situated around 10 miles to the south-west of Gloucester, Newnham's strategic location on the Severn meant that the Romans built three roads through the location, where they forded the river. The Anglo-Saxons established a permanent settlement, the Normans fortified it against the Welsh, and in medieval times it became a major port with links around Great Britain and Ireland. The core of the village is designated as a Conservation Area with the majority of the buildings on the tree-lined High Street being listed. In the centre, you will see the prominent clock tower and it is the first point where the famous Severn Bore can be easily seen as it starts its journey up the River Severn towards Gloucester. With fantastic walks, views, and a growing selection of independent businesses it is a wonderful place to visit.
