Teresa Pemberton : Aeonium Lake

Exhibition: Teresa Pemberton - Echoes of Colour & Light

There is a very good reason Teresa Pemberton is one of our most popular artists and you only have to look at this collection of new work to see why. Her colours are simply beautiful.

Jean Jones: A Life Uncovered

This intimate exhibition includes a selection of previously unseen paintings of Jones's favourite places - Dartmoor, Oxford and London - and some wonderful portraits. In addition there are also sketches, letters and notebooks which give a fascinating insight into the life of this hugely talented artist.

The talk will be filmed live and a video link will be put on the website.

Buttercups at Ide by Joe Webster

Marks of Nature Exhibition

Our first Exhibition of the year brings together three very different artists from the south west, John Grice , Joe Webster and Ellie Verrecchia , who each have a true love of the natural world which they celebrate in their paintings. Their landscapes and seascapes of the local coastline and countryside are exceptional. John has produced some fantastic new work. Joe likes to mix things up with a bit of street art giving an edge to his paintings, and Ellie's gentle works on paper are breathtakingly beautiful.
