We were truly delighted to welcome so many to the gallery on Thursday evening, for the preview evening of our exhibition featuring the works of local artist Richard Thorn.

Richard was exhibiting his selection of original paintings featuring scenes of Chudleigh and other local areas. Visitors to the preview were treated to some exquisite work to view whilst enjoying a glass of wine and some nibbles with us.

Roy and some guests!

We really enjoyed chatting to you all and it was interesting listening to your stories and memories that were sparked by the unmistakeable locations featured in Richards work.

Visitors to the gallery commented on the depth and detail in the paintings, some felt that they had photo like qualities from a distance but it wasn’t until they were closer to them that they could appreciate how much detail, light and shade was apparent.

Richard was also with us for some of the evening, he really enjoyed talking to so many about the paintings and what he saw from each of the featured locations.

The preview evening was great fun but if you missed it you can still call in to see the work of Richard Thorn until Thursday (we are closed tomorrow).
