Apple Store Gallery was opened in 2005 by husband and wife team David Laws and Marion Campbell in an Arts & Crafts apple store in Brockhampton, Herefordshire. We moved to Bridge Street, Hereford in October 2010 and again in March 2014 to Rockfield Road, Hereford where we are now open throughout the year for exhibitions of local artists’ work, artist’s workshops, poetry and music events. We also offer a framing service. And, artists’ studios for rent.
Marion & David have many years’ experience of arts management and practice and hope that this venue will further the reputation of Herefordshire as the county of creativity as well as of beautiful scenery and heritage.
“We have worked for a long time with many local artists and craft practitioners and are very excited about the opportunity the Gallery presents to help promote local work. The artists are very supportive of the venture that we hope presents insights into the whole range of fine art. We are especially keen to open up exhibition opportunities for young artists who live or have studied locally and who can benefit from the support of those who are more established. To this end, we sponsor Framework Herefordshire Young Open which forms part of h.Art and the End of Year show for the BA Fine Art Degree at Hereford College of Arts. We also take part in h.Art (Herefordshire Art Week)”.

- Advice on presentation, a framing service and provision of specialist canvases
