Well, we have been hard at work decorating the gallery, having new floor and rearranging some of our displays. We have got some beautiful pieces on display, from landscapes to seascapes to stunning floral pieces. We thought we would take a few pictures to give you a sneaky peek inside the gallery

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! 🙂

As lovers of art we are always thrilled to consider working with local artists. It gives us great pleasure to let you all know that we have some superb original seascapes by Teignmouth artist; Catherine Kennedy for sale.

Catherine Kennedys work brings a level of depth and movement.

Catherine Kennedys work brings a level of depth and movement.

Catherine says “My recent work has concentrated on the sea and I have tried to invoke an immersive element to my painting. I am interested in the process of change and development of an image over time.”

The above artist statement encapsulates the original works of Catherine Kennedy perfectly, as the oil on canvas work depicts depth, movement and evolution in a way that is enthralling to the eye. The seascapes are truly stunning and we are delighted to be exhibiting them.
