About Us

Whalley Fine Art's vision is to encourage and support exciting Irish and International contemporary artists and talent.
From the outset, the galleries owners believe that neither artists nor art lovers need just another art gallery. What is needed
is an environment that not only encourages artists to explore and develop their natural talents, but most importantly, one that
supports them in this process.

Friday 27th May was a grand occasion for Stephen and Dawn Whalley as they opened their new contemporary art gallery at 378a Belmont Road, Belfast. There were over 60 new paintings on display by over 20 different artists and the gallery hosted over 200 guests to beautiful drinks reception and exquisite food by renowned chef Andy Rea from Home Restaurant and Mourne Seafood. Whalley Fine Art recently renovated and moved to the historic stable property set in the grounds of Lismachen House at the bottom of Craigantlet Hill, near Massey Avenue.
Owner Stephen added "Our recent expansion has allowed us to increase our exhibition capacity and with great onsite parking facilities and only 3 miles from Belfast City Centre, we look to build our gallery and framing business two fold this year".

Dawn and Stephen have been in the Art Gallery business since 2008 and are a husband and wife team dedicated to working with their customers to find and add to current or new art collections. They started off in the High Street in Holywood and had a great 8 years there, but after finding the perfect new building and location moved to get away from the hussle and bustle of the High Street where they could use the new space to display more work and have their own personal studios based there.

Dawn is famous for her animal and 'Snail' paintings which are now internationally known. Her Facebook page reaches over 100,000 people when she holds regular competitions to win some of her original art work, Ltd Edition Prints and a vast array of products, find her under Dawn Crothers Artist.
The new gallery has plans to introduce corporate distressing days where you come and paint in the beautiful new surroundings and even have the opportunity to learn how to frame and come away with a finished piece of art at the end of the day to hang and admire in your very own living room!
