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...
Summer is here and with it that optimism that the longer, warmer days bring.
And at long last, our lovely gallery is now fully restored after the bashing it took thanks to the storms in January. After six months of repairs we are scaffolding free and newly painted, it looks very smart even we say so ourselves.
We have been back to Sussex to see our loony Valerie Davide
who has been busy with her charcoals. She has been working on a larger scale which is great as she hasn’t done so in a while and her goofy animals really bounce clean off the paper when this big.
We’ve got snorting bulls, snoozing Siamese, curious cows, prancing ponies, posing Pugs and hair-brained hares, it’s a superb new collection. In addition – to satisfy public demand, we have a new mug – no, not me – but Billy our English Bull Terrier. He might look a bit scary but we’ve met him and he’s a real softy. Billy lived next door to Val when she was at Gwithian and he has always been one of her favourite models. Produced in bone china as all the mugs are, he is £8.95.
We also have new work from Keith Stott
, Robert Dudley
and David Norman
so come and see us soon.
In a bid to satisfy international interest in Valerie Davide’s work we have established an online shop www.maycontainmutts.com
This website features original drawings, prints as well as our current range of merchandise together with regular news updates.
Of course you can still contact us here at the Gallery
