Welcome to Coastal Gallery Lymington

Coastal Gallery is a leading independent contemporary art gallery, situated in Lymington in the New Forest, and celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.

Coastal Gallery is a touchstone for exceptional and unusual original contemporary art and design. Working closely with emerging and established artists and designers, the gallery champions painters, photographers, sculptors, ceramicists and jewellery designers, based locally and in London, whose work demonstrates outstanding talent, creativity and craftsmanship.

The Coastal Gallery collection is curated by Stewart Mechem and Bev Saunders. Between them, they bring together years of successful business experience working in the art, design and fashion worlds. With a keen eye for contemporary art and design, and knowledge of what’s trending, Bev and Stewart have an instinct for sourcing the best artwork for each and every client.

Bev and Stewart have built up their own collections of original artworks, and enjoy helping you to develop yours. Their Try at Home service enables you to try out artwork in your home, or workspace, for up to seven days. After that, you can simply return the artwork to the gallery or pay for your purchase.
