Contrast and Connections

Art Gallery in the East Midlands featuring original contemporary artwork by leading artists in their respective disciplines of Painting, Printmaking, Photography and Sculpture. Located in the village of Castle Donington in North West Leicestershire, close to M1 and M42 networks and within easy reach of Leicester, Derby and Nottingham. The gallery itself, a beautifully converted barn, is situated behind one of the oldest buildings in Castle Donington. This thatched cottage dates back to the Tudor period and is set in beautiful gardens surrounded by trees and farmland.

The gallery is currently broken up into four main exhibition spaces. we currently hold around six major exhibitions a year in three of the spaces, each lasting around six weeks. The ‘permanent’  gallery space features a rotating collection of work by our represented artists.

Featuring a diverse range of artists, Tarpey Gallery is a great place to discover and buy exciting and affordable contemporary Artwork.

“The opening of the Tarpey Gallery in the small town of Castle Donington in late 2009, has been a cause for some celebration. For this is a large, light and beautifully converted space dedicated to showing top-class uncompromisingly contemporary work”
