A Favourite Gallery Of The Midlands

Established in 1983, Driffold Gallery is now one of the Midlands' favourite Fine Art Dealers. The gallery occupies the whole of 'The Smithy,' a grade 2 listed building of deceptive size adjacent to Sutton town centre. This is one of the Bishop Vesey buildings dating from the 14th and 15th centuries which are an important part of Sutton's heritage. The NEC, the City Centre, the M5, M6 and M42 are within fifteen minutes drive and there is parking on site.

Proprietor, David Gilbert, believes the success of the business is because of the wide range of subjects, styles and prices, with Victorian, Impressionist and Modern artists being represented. And all pictures are firmly vetted to good London and Universal standards promising lasting pleasure and investment potential in a satisfying combination. The gallery has also gained a reputation for pictures that have remained in lovely unspoiled condition, rather than buying rough and restoring, and a comprehensive guarantee is standard. When it comes to taste, the gallery believes the important thing is that, " it's a good taste of the artist." David was arts columnist for 'Select' Magazines and a consultant editor to ' Miller's Picture Price Guides.'
