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!

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! 🙂



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! 🙂
