The Harbour Gallery

In April 2012, Mark bought The Harbour Gallery in Portscatho. Within 4 years Mark had increased the gallery’s turnover by 500%, focussing especially on social media and website marketing, and in 2017 THG won ‘Best Cornish Gallery’ in a reader poll.

The Harbour Gallery represents some of the best British artists working in the country today, including many Royal Institute and regional Institute members. Mark has worked closely with many partners over the years including hotels like Tresanton, Scarlet, Driftwood and Bedruthan and regularly holds exciting exhibitions both in-house and externally.

In 2018 Mark started writing about art for national and regional magazines including the UK’s biggest art publication The Artist, cumulating in him releasing his first self-help book The Artist’s Handbook, helping artists and galleries traverse the difficult world of digital marketing.

Mark constantly looks for new ways to work with partners to increase both the gallery’s turnover and the promotion of art in general. He has also launched two innovative website for the sale of art, a curated online gallery, BritishContemporary.art and the world’s first dedicated online platform for the resale of new and pre-owned art, ArtRehome.com.

BritishContemporary.art

Having worked with some of the best British artists in The Harbour Gallery, Mark wanted to expand the selection he could offer of their work, plus work with other artists that so inspired him outside of the locational confines of his physical Cornish gallery.

As such, in January 2018, Mark launched an exciting online-only gallery, BritishContemporary.art, featuring some of the UK brightest talents in a curated online webspace.

In its first year it had achieved tens of thousands in sales and accumulate over 15000 followers on its various social media accounts. Mark has already started to put together the mechanisms to launch similar platforms in the US, Canada and Europe.
