Grey Funnel Galleries opened in October 2019 and is owned and run by Adrian Rowe who has lived and worked on the Island for many years.
The shop at 3 Carter Road was built on land originally owned by Vice Admiral Thomas Wren Carter (1787-1874) and so Grey Funnel (an informal name for the Navy) was an apt choice of name for the gallery.
Some of our display stands have been decorated with a dazzle camouflage pattern. Dazzle was invented by Norman Wilkinson, who was a well known marine artist, and was used on ships during the First World War. It also features in our Grey Funnel trade mark and Grey Funnel Line logo.

There is plenty to see and so take your time to look around.
We are next to The Bay Medical Centre in Shanklin marked by the sign of the grey ship.
