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,

As the goalposts seem to keep on moving, we have to inform you to say that we will now be reopening on June 15th in-line with the latest government rules. We had hoped to open sooner but we must comply in order to stay safe.

We are happy to open by appointment any time should you prefer to have the gallery to yourselves, just call 07718 319392 and we will be happy to arrange it.

We will of course be operating social distancing with only 4 people admitted to the gallery at any one time.

We have missed you all and look forward to throwing our doors open again, see you soon!

Best wishes

Sharon Davidson


This month marks the fifteenth anniversary of Davidson Fine Art, we are so proud to still be trading in the heart of Totnes.

To mark this occasion we will be staging an exhibition which is postponed until the summer, entitled ‘Fifteen’ – I know, lacks a certain imagination!

When we opened our doors we did so with the express intention of championing West Country artists, we believed then, and do to this day that we are blessed with the most incredible talent in this corner of our great country.

We have spent those intervening years delivering on our promise and have been proud to represent a small but highly gifted stable of artists.

From the finest marine paintings of John Chancellor, Terence Lee, Bob Grimson and James Brereton to purveyors of landscape and townscapes in the form of Robert Dudley, David Norman and Michael Norman, our ethos is simple, we offer the best in each genre and medium.

Other notable names at the top of their game include internationally acclaimed Mark Demsteader, the late Robert Lenkiewicz, St Ives based Mark Poprawski, Tony Williams RSMA, Tony Forrest, Gary Long, Simon Ashby, the late Valerie Davide and the veteran Ken Howard RA OBE. All these painters are showing works of immense merit, and the exhibition includes some rare and important pieces. From stunning Venetian views to lazy summer afternoons on the Exe Estuary, the show takes you on a tour of some of sensory sights that will lift your spirits and remind you of what a beautiful place we inhabit.

Most artists have submitted new work for this eclectic show, we look forward to welcoming you. Here is a small selection of what you can expect to see.
