About Walkern Gallery
Walkern Gallery was the studio and home of artist Stephen Lowe.
A keen landscape painter, in 2002 Stephen moved to the conservation area of Walkern in Hertfordshire to enjoy the inspiration of local scenery and to open his studio. Friends and local professional artists soon became involved in the venture and, to date, over 60 artists have exhibited their work to form what is, without doubt, an exciting and varied show of talented creativity.
Walkern Gallery is situated in the picturesque Hertfordshire village of Walkern, approximately two miles from Stevenage with it's excellent road and rail links and is noted as the home of Jane Wenham, who, in 1712, was the last woman in England to be convicted of witchcraft. Talking of witchcraft, legend has it that the site for Walkern was chosen by the Devil himself, who nightly moved building materials intended for a church from nearby Boxbury. The Devil's cries of "Walk on, walk on!" are reputed to be the basis of the village's name.
