An art gallery closed earlier this year and its unit has now gone on the market again.

The Sinclair Gallery, in Rickmansworth High Street, closed on March 16.

It shared a message via its social media on its final day thanking the local community and wishing its founder Esther Murphy luck with her future as an artist.

In a post on Instagram, the gallery said: “Thank you to the artists who trusted us with their beautiful work, the local community who came in to visit and purchase art, the brilliant art competition applicants, the wider art community, and the talented students that took classes with us.

“We hope you’ll join us in wishing our founder Esther all the best with her future as an artist.

“Thank you everybody. Don’t stop creating.”

The 377-square-foot unit is described as a “niche High Street retail premises” and a new lease would be granted at a £26,000 annual rent.

It is between Robsons Estate Agents and Wishful Drinking.

When a deal was completed for a new company to take over the former Nolans unit in the High Street, earlier this week, Perry Holt Property Consultants said it quickly attracted a lot of interest, proving "the high street isn’t dead" in Rickmansworth.

There have been several businesses going on the market around the town centre recently, but the estate agents added that they have largely proved popular and resulted from leases ending or personal circumstances for owners rather than financial struggles.
