Village Art Gallery

Shevington now has Village Art Gallery, a purpose-built space to exhibit art. Village Art Gallery is for professional and amateur artists and community groups. Preference is given to artists or groups who live and/or work in the borough of Wigan. While Village Art Gallery is suitable for wall-based works small installations and sculpture collections will also be considered.

Swinley Art Group

Swinley Art GroupThe Swinley Group is intended to encourage and promote the work of representational and figurative artists mainly through exhibitions. The 3 founding members; Nick Fisher, Beth Burke and Geoff Burke all have a strong connection with the Swinley area of Wigan, Lancashire. They have been joined recently by Gabrielle Anderson who brings her own unique talents and enthusiasm to the group.

The Swinley Group is a forward looking and expanding collective of artists who welcome new members and are dedicated to helping all our artists further their ambitions and talents.

Margaret Key

Margaret KeyMargaret Key lives in Shevington. She used to sew all her clothes as a teenager, then for her children but as she progressed through her career up to a Senior P.A. and College Lecturer, time was limited and the sewing stopped.

Then after a car accident which changed her life, she began to do various crafts to keep her mind active. Now she makes bags of all shapes and sizes from fabric, faux leather, cork, glitter etc. They are made from quality fabrics and are unique in that she very rarely makes two the same.
