Rennies Gallery, Liverpool interior

Welcome to Rennies Gallery

Rennies Arts & Crafts was started by Ronald Rennie and Jean Rennie in 1965. The business started from selling oil paintings by Jean Rennie around the North West of England. Ronald Rennie used to frame the paintings with help from his sons, Duncan, Steven and Andrew. Every member of the family were involved in selling the paintings from key out door sites in the North West, such as Bluecoat Chambers in Liverpool, The waterfront at Chester and by the seaside at New Brighton, Southport and Caernarfon.

Ron and Jean opened several shops selling art materials and pictures, in Birkenhead and Liverpool. In 1985 Ron and Jean took more of a back seat in the running of the business, which they passed on to their two sons, Duncan and Steven.

In 1991 the business went limited. Duncan and Steven opened more stores in Ormskirk and St Helens, which are still open today, along our head office in Bold Street, Liverpool.

Duncan Rennie now runs the very successful art and craft material retail side of the business. Steven Rennie now runs the galleries and the picture framing arm of the business. The business employs about 25 people. Duncan and Steven have both stayed true to their core principle, important to any small family business –  To offer the customer the best possible standard of service.
