Above the Blue is Hampshire's refreshing, new contemporary art gallery in a stunning location overlooking the marina on the Upper Boardwalk at Port Solent Marina. It specialises in original paintings, ceramics, sculpture, jewellery, glass & cards from a hand picked selection of individual makers that have been chosen for the superlative quality of their work.

Lynn Pickett, owner of Above the Blue is an experienced gallery manager and aims to bring some fantastic new artworks to Port Solent. Lynn has been busy scouting the country for both established and emerging artists and building a collection which she hopes will attract art lovers from far and wide. Lynn features paintings, sculptures and a variety of other interesting artworks and plans to host several art events each year at The Boardwalk, Apart from paintings the range includes quirky clocks, unusual mirrors, ceramics, bronze resin sculptures of animals and exquisite bronzes by Cornish artist, Chris Buck, slip cast bone china vessels by the UK’s foremost exponent in this medium, Sasha Wardell, right through to a very versatile range of jewellery by Annabel Owens. Above the Blue also offers a framing service.

Whether you are looking for a beautiful work of art for yourself or you are searching for a unique gift for any room in the house or your office or even just a card, Above the Blue is well worth a visit.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits everyone from the keenest collectors and corporate-art buyers, to people buying ‘real’ art for the first time – or those who just happen to be passing by and fancy a look, so please do drop in for a browse....
