Art & Photography


White Fox Gallery

Photographer Stephen Whitehorne, and his artist co-partner Virginie Renard, run The White Fox Gallery at the Hirsel Country Estate. Set by the lake, the gallery houses Stephen's totally unique and superb photographic prints and Virginie's beautiful painted artworks (including paintings and art painted furniture). Both artists aim to celebrate the beauty of the natural world. The gallery also operates a programme of rotating guest artists working in a range of media including precious metals, fine textiles, stone and wood. The Gallery is a real gem and well worth a visit.
