A number of private galleries specialising in works by modern British artists include Sheila Fell in their oevre; among these are the Castlegate House Gallery in Cockermouth and Clark Art Limited in Hale, Cheshire.
Castlegate House Gallery has been at the forefront in promoting the work of Sheila Fell in recent times. It mounted a large and important selling exhibition of her work in 2005. More recently Steve and Christine Swallow, current owners of the gallery, held a large selling exhibition of her work in 2014; Castlegate typically has several works by Sheila Fell for sale.
Clark Art specialises in L.S. Lowry and Modern British Art and usually has one or more works by Sheila Fell for sale. Occasionally, her work appears for sale by art galleries in London.
