Opened in 1980 by Gerard O’ Farrell and Brian Sinfield, Fosse Gallery dealt in Victorian watercolours before establishing its reputation in the Modern British Field. By the mid 1980’s a great partnership had begun between O‘Farrell and former fashion designer turned art dealer, Don Steyn. The gallery went from strength to strength, specialising in Scottish painting and became an art mecca.
Sharon Wheaton joined in a professional capacity in the mid 1990’s, had an exceptional teacher in Don Steyn and remains, over two decades later, doing the job that she loves. The gallery remains in its splendid Cotswold location in Stow-on-the-Wold.
Sharon has worked closely to build the gallery’s relationship with the Royal Academy and the New English Art Club, and has staged major exhibitions for both societies, as well as curating retrospectives for William Gear RA, Richard Eurich RA and Ursula McCannell ARCA WICA.
