The architect of The Sentinel was Laurie Wood & Associates and he has created a truly modernist building, despite controversy among some Wivenhonians, we believe the sleek design adds cultural diversity to an already thriving small town.
After years of planning permissions being submitted and rejected, in 2014 the gallery was finally given the go-ahead and the build began. Now it would be possible that this new building could give back to Wivenhoe a space that would be of benefit to the whole community.
Now owned by Lorraine & Pip George, the gallery is moving in new directions, A true home for art of all kinds ....and periods.
The Sentinel allows artists to hire the gallery area to put on their own one man, or shared shows. They also, from time to time put on collaborative events.
