The Painted Word – Books & Art

“The Painted Word” is a boutique book store and gallery with a focus on picture books, original artworks, limited edition prints and giftware. Its core aim is to nurture both young and older people’s interest in reading, writing and art and how these can link together.

Presenting a different theme every eight-ten weeks, the store showcases a core exhibition that resident artists, Katherine Castle, Lisa Tiffen and Tina Wilson, respond to with their own unique artworks.

A children’s gallery outside the store, also responds to the theme creating a place where a blend of artistic expression encourages interest in reading, writing and art for all ages.

Art classes, writing workshops, author talks and publishing workshops will be available in 2021. To register your interest please call Renae or visit us in store.
