Exhibition - FRESH AIRS

We hit the refresh button with this exhibition of fresh new work inspired by the sea

FRESH AIRS presents four artists who are inspired by the sea and coast of Devon and Cornwall. Each has a different style but all are passionate about this beautiful part of the world. Their enthusiasm and fresh approach is just what we need right now, as we come out of hibernation and tentatively return to normal life.

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.
