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...


So the schools have broken up which means it is likely to rain a lot for the next few weeks, that’s a British summer for you.

Meanwhile we have been very busy buying new work from our established artists and also taking on some new painters which is very exciting. Seeking out new artists is an important and time consuming part of what we do and this time we’re working with painters in oil. I’ll not tell you more until our framers have finished working their magic then we’ll have images for you, but we think you’ll love the work, small in scale and affordable.

Meanwhile we have 3 new works coming next month from the world class Mark Demsteader, see images below and also from Totnes based watercolourist David Norman who has been busy hanging out in France again, what a life.

We also have two new self portraits by the great Robert Lenkiewicz who will have left us 15 years ago this August, hard to believe. One of these was actually painted on Tamar Ward at Derriford Hospital towards the end of his life, both poignant and important.

So dear art lovers, enjoy having a look around the site and keep checking in for updates
