We aren't giving in!
So here we are again - back in lockdown and the Gallery is closed until further notice. It's not very exciting, but we will be taking the opportunity to do some building repairs in the meantime.
But we are not going away, and many of our Artists are able to offer their work for sale on this website. If you know the Artist whose work interest you, find them in the listings lower down this page, or go straight to their Gallery page through the link at the top of this window.
We were also busy on on our Facebook and Instagram pages. If you would like to follow us there, click the links below, and you can register for our occasional newsletter by filling in the form there too.
cards and gift ideas
Welcome to two new members, graphic designer Madeleine Alcock who has a number of unique - and customisable cards for your nearest and dearest on our special Valentine's Day page, and from Marta Wojnas, something completely different, practical, colourful and beautiful resin works. Have a look at her Artist's page, you will be impressed, an you might just find an unusual present for someone.
You will find more Valentine's Day gifts among wonderful hand crafted jewellery on Jane Griffiths page, floral and heart shaped clocks on Emma Wilkinson's page, as well as her paintings of Banbury scenes, and on Janet Bird's amazing animal paintings and seascapes will delight all lovers of nature.
We are showing Louise Regan's Award winning illuminations of cities and places, some local, some well known and some imaginary. Her latest paintings take a somewhat surrealist look at Banbury town. And one of our founder members, Rosy Burke, offers some bright and cheerful rural scenes.
Last but not least, photographer Barry Barker exhibits a very strange kettle of fish, a delicate and delightful study of Venice in February, and the gentle monochrome studies of the Cumbrian countryside are photographs to contemplate.
Browse through the pages, you will find some unique and original gifts, and the opportunity to support the local art community.

Church Lane Gallery - Our story
Church Lane Gallery is the home of Banbury Artists' Co-operative. Church Lane Gallery opened in 2016 and is managed and staffed exclusively by talented local artists who show and sell their work directly to the public. Bespoke commission work is also often possible.
We also offer an ever-changing, wide range of art and gifts at a variety of prices.
Our aim is to bring beautiful, affordable local art to the heart of the Banbury community.
Artists can often be found creating new work during their stewarding shifts in the gallery and visitors are able to see the processes involved in making the art we sell.
We frequently feature artist events and rejuvenate the gallery every month so there’s always something new and inspiring to see!
