Modern British & Marine Paintings

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.
