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...


Dear art lovers,

Christmas is nearly here!! You can’t pretend any longer, it’s time to make those lists and hit the shops.

We always do our best to make life easy for you and to come up with those gift ideas that suit all tastes and budgets. Our May Contain Mutts limited edition calendar is always much in demand and is selling fast. If you or a family member are a fan of Val’s work (and we know there are thousands of you) we also have a great selection of placemats, coasters, mugs, prints as well as original drawings. We can send anywhere or if you prefer you can buy online at our website dedicated to Val’s work which is www.maycontainmutts.com.

For those looking for something extra special we have some beautiful original work from our wonderful stable of gifted artists, the most recent of whom to join us is Ian Hargreaves. Having spent a lot of his working life living in Europe he does a lot of romantic scenes of locations like Venice. This stunning work is his most recent and is steeped in romance, if you’ve been to Venice this will take you right back there. Titled ‘Darkness Descends over Venice’, depicting a night scene bought to life by brilliant use of light, it is a really accomplished work by an artist voted Artist of the Year back in 2016.

We’re here to help so if you are looking for something special, memorable and lasting come and see us.

Merry Christmas!
