Gavagan Art

Gavagan Art

Gavagan Art is owned by Mary Gavagan, who has a wealth of knowledge and experience in presenting exhibitions, and advising on the purchase and collection of modern and contemporary art, having done so for over 25 years.

Mary was Director of the University art gallery at Lancaster University for over 20 years, developing the gallery’s collection and staging fine art and craft exhibitions. These showcased works by internationally recognised artists including Joan Miro, Albert Irvin OBE, David Hockney, Alan Davie, Sir Terry Frost, L. S. Lowry and Andy Goldsworthy.

Exhibitions at the gallery often featured work on loan from national collections including the Art Council, the British Museum and the Imperial War Museum. Having been shown at Lancaster, many of these exhibitions were then loaned to regional museums and galleries.
