We are absolutely delighted to let you all know that on Thursday 13th August 2015 between 6pm – 8.30pm we are holding a private viewing for our forthcoming exhibition featuring stunning pieces by Chris Court and Jude Freeman. The works that we will be exhibiting are sure to be popular and we are so pleased that those who attend the private viewing will also have an opportunity to meet the artists themselves.

We will be serving wine and nibbles on the evening; you will be treated to some stunning watercolours (by Chris Court) and some fabulous prints (by Jude Freeman).



If you would like to come please do drop in, if you can’t make it on the private viewing evening you will be pleased to learn that the exhibition will continue until 27th August 2015.

Come and enjoy a lovely evening with us, in the meantime here is a little taste of the types of work you can expect to see.





We hope to see you there! 🙂


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.

A lovely Chudleigh scene in all its glory.

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).
