Grey Funnel is an art gallery in Shanklin which opened in October 2019. We specialise in marine paintings and modern British art but also have a good stock of medals, collectables and art books.
The shop at 3 Carter Road was built on land originally owned by Royal Navy Vice Admiral Thomas Wren Carter (1787-1874) and so Grey Funnel was an apt choice of name for the gallery.
A large proportion of our stock is by Island artists including works by Deryck Foster (1924-2011), Martin Swan (b.1951), Cavendish Morton (1911-2015) and Mervyn Pearson (b.1934). We also have works by modern British artists including Mary Fedden RA (1915-2012), Ken Howard RA (b.1932) and Elisabeth Frink RA (1930-1993).
