GALLERY: Park Lane Fine Arts sells paintings by mainly contemporary artists in oils, watercolours and pastels. The paintings we have are by several artists, both landscape and figurative, including many local scenes. We have three resident artists, Sherree Valentine-Daines, Mark Rowbotham and Sharyn Jennings, whose work is permanently on display and who are available for commissions. Sherree Valentine-Daines' paintings of sporting events are in particular demand - especially "Deliverance", her celebration of the kick that won the Rugby World Cup (the prints of which have been countersigned by Jonny Wilkinson).

The Gallery normally holds one show a year, usually in November - please email any names and addresses to be added to our mailing list so that details can be sent to you.

SERVICES: We offer a picture-framing service with a large and varied range of mouldings, including a range of hand-finished frames. These are gilded and coloured to suit the customer's wishes. All the work is carried out on the premises, including the gesso and gilding process. We are very happy to give advice and guidance when choosing any form of framing. Frames can also be repaired and restored. Another service is picture cleaning and restoring both oils and watercolours. Each painting needs a different approach, depending on medium, age and condition. It is best to bring any painting into the shop for inspection, and we will advise and quote as appropriate. To get an idea of what is involved, have a look at the description of a recent restoration project.

ASSURANCE OF QUALITY: The work is carried out by Lorna Valentine-Daines. Lorna studied Restoration and Conservation at Northumbria University, before training under the watchful eye of the late Steven Stephens. He passed on all his knowledge and experience, and she has been successfully restoring for the past 20 years.

LOCATION: Park Lane Fine Arts is situated on the righthand side as you leave the Epsom end of Ashtead on the main A24 (see map).

OPENING HOURS: Hours of opening are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Saturday, except Wednesday when we are open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. - or by appointment.
