Crackpot – Louth

Crackpot Gallery is now open in Louth.



The brainchild of Artist Elaine Gorton, Crackpot provides people of all ages the opportunity to participate in an amazing art experience.


Elaine says:


“Art is my life. I’ve admired artists, studied art, criticised techniques and perfected my own talents. Art can convey many messages, from portraits to oil paintings through sculpture and modelling, but above all else, for me art is inspiration. The inspiration to create and adapt and refine and realise. That’s what crackpot is all about, the freedom to explore your own creativity, make your own mark and create your own masterpieces. Paint a cup, design a Christmas bauble or print a memento of your little ones feet on a plate. I can’t wait to meet you and your family and if you need any advice or support I’ll be right here.


I used to think that creativity was a gift; perfected by the few and admired by the many. Now I realise that the real gift is being able to share my love with the world. Just don’t ask me why I called it Crackpot!”
