About Heart of The Tribe

Our Vision

The Heart of The Tribe gallery showcases provoking contemporary art and supports local artists by facilitating their professional and creative development.

Founded in Glastonbury Somerset, we support and empower local arts and culture through hosting exhibitions, events, workshops and educational talks.

We are incredibly excited to be working with our group of core artists from the Somerset area, reflecting a wide selection of styles and talent. We are very lucky to have them on board. Please visit our Core Artists page for further details and examples of their work.

We also offer a free artist directory open to all.

“I came to the gallery and had a fresh upbeat time. Met the owner in the garden he was very open and good to talk with. There was a humble open to all feeling with good high quality arrangement of art. The quality spoke for itself, there was no need for people being elitist ……….its a place I will always come back to. I can’t wait to see the new shows and exhibits as time goes on. Really enjoyed the garden space … really good experience…a lot of heart has gone into the place as well as money and good sound judgement.”

Chris Hutchens, Gallery proprietor Cornwall.


“The Heart of the Tribe is a wonderful Gallery space, and a welcome lift to and expansion of the art environment in Glastonbury. It is high end without being snobbish, uplifting, high vibe, and the artists are as cosmic as you would hope for in this town without a hint of naff. It is a breath of fresh air for all of the artistic community and  I highly recommend a visit.”

Rosie Morris, Glastonbury Artist.
