Contemporary paintings
.
The Fountain Gallery is to be found at 26 Bridge Road and this exhibits the work of a group of artists on a rotating basis. This includes paintings in a variety of media, prints, sculpture, ceramics, textiles and jewellery. Some of the artists show work of local interest and amongst these is John Dobbs who is often to be seen on the banks of the river, in all weathers, capturing the spirit of the place.

Another artist who finds inspiration by the Thames is John Walsom who is also an enthusiast for plein air painting, following in the footsteps, quite literally, of Alfred Sisley.
