Thurmanovich Gallery

 
 
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has.

The Idea

We’re a global gallery, but we do more than just sell art; we’re building a community of people like you: artists, buyers and patrons who are as passionate about the environment as you are about art. We're using photography to inspire people to protect Mother Nature by showing her immense  beauty. 

Our underlying belief is that, although messages telling us we’re killing the planet are absolutely necessary, people respond better to positive messages which help them engage. We won’t bore you with the research that supports that, but if you’re curious send us an email and we’ll share what we learned. 

Our Values

Thurmanovich Gallery’s traditional values of appreciation for beauty, focus on quality, love of the environment, optimism, and integrity are reflected in all our endeavours and interactions. We aim to delight you with our art, aspirations, outlook and service.

As part of the gallery's activities, we run a series of outreach programmes, helping people appreciate the natural environment on their own doorsteps as well as further afield. We also donate a percentage of our profits to environmental charities. The nominated charity for 2017 is The Woodland Trust in the UK.

On Your Doorstep

The gallery grew out of Karen and Mick Thurman's "On Your Doorstep" project, which ran in the UK from April 2014 to October 2015. Its aim was to show people that nature's beauty was all around them, no matter where they lived.

We chose eight non-iconic locations in the UK, drew a 20 mile radius around each, and photographed the wealth of natural beauty there.  We returned to each location to exhibit what we’d seen, and were gratified by the number of people who developed a new appreciation for their own doorsteps. On Your Doorstep lives on in a digital magazine and various activities; see more on our On Your Doorstep page.
