On Friday the 31st March 2017 we were joined by the Mayor of Chudleigh to present the private viewing of ‘THE ONE MAN SHOW’ by local artist MATTHEW DAVISON.  His collection features landscapes of the stunning Dartmoor National Park and they were well received on the night by all. Guests were treated to wine and food as they perused Matthew’s interesting take on the various moods of Dartmoor.

Do you have a special sports shirt that means the world to you but you just don’t know what to do with it? This is a common issue, sometimes customers come to us with signed shirts, special edition shirts or just an item of sports wear that is hugely sentimental. If you want to put your pride of joy on display in its rightful place please ask us about our framing services.

Why get it framed?

  • Framing helps to keep your item of clothing in tip top condition, rather than being folded up in a drawer the item is kept nice and flat.
  • Show it off to friends and family, it is a lovely talking point
  • Framing it will make it into keepsake for you to cherish and pass down to other family members.
  • If you have a certificate of authenticity we can frame this too or simply secure it safely into the back of the frame for safe keeping.

 

If you have a special piece of sports wear that you want to maintain for years to come please pop in for a no obligation quote.

 

Best Regards

We were so pleased with how many lovely people turned up to our exhibition private viewing on Thursday, it was great fun. Fantastic to see our little gallery bursting at the seams with people wanting to look (and buy) the works of art that we had on display.

Those that came enjoyed a drink or two, some nibbles and had time to talk to the artists themselves; Jude Freeman and Chris Court.

I will leave you with some pictures of the evening to give you a taste of the exhibition. If you weren’t able to make the private viewing please call in as the exhibition continues until 27th August 2015.

Thanks again to all of you that came, maybe we will soon need an extension!

Artist Chris Court fell for the beauty of the moor lands when she was a child. Born in Dorset, she would spend many family days admiring the beauty of the moors, so much so, that she now lives on the edge of Dartmoor where she is always on the look out for interesting scenes to feature in her wonderful pieces.

Chris creates her work at home in her summerhouse studio, however, the pieces that she creates are born out in the open where she takes photographs, sketches and records spoken word about the scenes. Using this holistic approach she creates some amazing pieces which she paints from a more emotional grounding to help convey feeling as well as depth, movement and expanse of space.

By using artist quality materials, Chris helps to ensure that if the pieces are properly cared for, their colour and vibrancy will last a lifetime of pleasurable years.

We are delighted to be exhibiting and selling the works of Chris Court here at The Bracken Gallery, some of the pieces we have here include titles such as Dartmoor Storm, Teign Estuary and Summer at Saddle Tor.

Pop in and take a look, allow these beautiful pieces to transport you to a place not too far away! :)
