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

Where has the time gone? After that glorious summer we are now blessed with a mild autumn and the riotous colours that Mother Nature blankets over the trees until they drop their foliage.

Our artists have not been idle (they try but I nag them) and gallery favourites Rob Dudley and David Norman have both produced some wonderful new paintings. In fact they are soooo good that 3 of Rob's sold the day after he delivered them, book early to avoid disappointment!

Rob has been revisiting his favourite parts of the South West Coast Walk, around Noss Mayo, Battisborough as well as Trevose and Porthcurno in Cornwall and up as far as the Pembrokeshire coast. The results are truly breathtaking, his ability to capture the movement of water dancing under bright skies has to be seen to be believed. He is the King of observation and to hear him talk about the painting process and and what inspires each scene is so very interesting, we are hoping that he will be doing a demonstration here in the gallery very soon so watch this space.

David meanwhile has returned to his beloved Venice, arguably the most romantic place in the world and a potential painting at every turn. David captures the yellow-hued light like no other, and because he works in watercolour you get that added softness of no hard edges.

We are so proud to represent these two legends of Westcountry painting.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

All the best
Sharon Davidson
