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...


Well dear art lovers we hope you have enjoyed what little summer we’ve had, you have certainly headed to Devon and Cornwall in your thousands and for that we are grateful.  We have had a bumper few months and for that we thank you valued clients too, our artists are happy bunnies too.

We have not been idle, our quest for new artists has resulted in Alex Movchun joining us to show his wonderful little oils of animals.  As his name suggests he is not a Devon boy, in fact he hails from a long way away but we just love his beautifully executed dog studies in oil.  It is a special gift to be able to capture the personality of a dog, something Val Davide did so brilliantly, and when we looked in to the eyes of this little bunch we got the same feeling.  These are not big but they are perfectly formed and we look forward to you all seeing them in the flesh.

We also have two new works from the amazing Mark Demsteader, they are so hot off the easel they don’t even have titles yet but we bought them as soon as we could.  His monochrome works in oil and pastel have always made a major statement, their simplicity of tone is so very dramatic, these arrive week commencing August 30th so if they appeal to you as much as they appealed to us, reserve yours now!

If you are planning a visit to the gallery please do ring in advance if you are travelling any distance as we are taking the odd day off to catch up with some of our artists down in Cornwall and we don’t want you to turn up and find us closed.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
All the best
Sharon Davidson
