Green Door are a self-managed, not-for-profit artists’ co-operative, committed to bringing artists together and making contemporary art accessible to local residents and visitors to the area. We were formed in 1995 by a group of artists based in Kendal, with the aim of providing low-cost studios for local artists.
Our membership is made up of artists working across all art forms and we currently have more than 100 members from around Cumbria and North Lancashire. We have a studio on Market Place in Kendal which is home to six artists.
We run a variety of events during the year – group exhibitions, solo exhibitions and an Art Trail.
Anyone can join Green Door – whether you’re an established artist or someone just starting out on your creative journey. For us, it’s about supporting each other along the way and providing opportunities to network, exhibit and get involved in the arts community.
