We are an independent gallery which opened its doors in March 2005 with the aim of representing a small group of predominantly West Country based artists. Our mission was to select the most talented artists in each medium and genre both living and deceased. more...


Greetings art lovers, we have exciting news to liven you up and drag you out of your winter doldrums! We will shortly take delivery of two new works from the globally respected figurative painter Mark Demsteader. As an artist Mark is now highly valued and collected, with representation around the world, we are currently the only UK gallery with a permanent display of his work, we are very honoured to be in this position. We thought it might be interesting for his collectors to find out a little bit more about this genius holed up in the north of England! To that end we did a short interview with him, nothing too high brow but insightful all the same, click to read the Mark Demsteader interview.

The new work from Valerie Davide is also now hung in the gallery; ladies and gents, it is becoming more rare as Val’s output has dropped dramatically so get it whilst you can. We hope that she gets her mojo back soon but for now we are grateful for whatever she produces. This visit to her studio elicited some really sweet cat studies although there was also the odd Bassett and Terrier too.

We’ll keep you posted about other new work that is in the pipeline, now bring on Spring!
