Artworks at The Court House

There is a range of stunning artwork on display in the restaurant which features local and national artists’ originals and limited edition prints.

We try wherever possible to frame our pieces in salvaged wood from the renovation of the property so you aren’t just buying an artwork but a piece of local social history too.

Amongst our images from Anna Swift, Jen Buckley and others, we’re also currently featuring a stunning original work from a local artist and designer Esther Kent. Esther works in mixed media collage and gouache. (Nope, us neither – an opaque mix of watercolour pigment and a glue-like binding agent – you’re welcome).

As well as her playful collages, Esther takes commissions there are several homes locally featuring her gorgeous family trees.

Esther gained a first class degree in Illustration and Printmaking at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2002, before going on to study publishing. She spent several years working in arts management, and returned to her first love of design more recently and hasn’t stopped since. Being a busy mum of three and a volunteer art specialist at the local primary school keeps her pretty busy too!

Pink Footed Geese is on display at the moment, priced at £250. Framed in salvaged oak from the original Court House flooring, it is a truly original piece with a local heart.
