Welcome to Artful!
Artful is an art and gift shop in Hexham, Northumberland. It's the brain child of Kelly Morgan, who set it up in 2007.
Art has been Kelly's lifelong passion. The vision she has brought to life through Artful is to make art accessible to everyone and to provide local artists with a platform to sell their work.
Spread across two floors, Artful is a treasure trove of affordable art, from jewellery and handmade candles to photography and original artwork by North East artists.
You can choose from a selected range of Kelly's work right here, but please do contact us if you're looking for something in particular - we're always happy to help.
"Art enables us to lose ourselves and find ourselves at the same time." (Thomas Merton)
With a heavy heart, I’ve decided today (21st March) that it’s time for us to close our shop door for a while. This has been an emotional decision for me, but I know it’s the right thing to do – for my team, for my family and for you, our lovely, loyal customers. I’ve put a lot of thought into this decision, because I don’t want to let anyone down. I don’t want to choose between my business and keeping people safe; but if I have to make that choice, my team and my customers always come first.
Don’t worry though, we will continue to maintain our presence here online. We’re working hard to make sure we have as much choice on the website as possible - so please forgive me if it's a bit disorganised to start with - and you can see my new designs as they emerge, by following us on social media.
And we will be back – with a vengeance! I’m taking this opportunity to work on some new designs and Sarah and Anne will be making sure the shop is spick and span… By the time this is all over, we’ll be more organised than we’ve ever been before!
Please look after yourselves and each other. See you soon.
