A WINTER'S TALESome beautiful works of art to lift the winter gloom
This winter we are all really missing the simple things - a proper chat with our friends, a drink at our favourite pub, a big hug from someone we love - so it's really important to do what we can to keep our spirits up and look forward to happier times, which are surely just around the corner.
One way we try to keep positive and healthy is to surround ourselves with beautiful and meaningful works of art, works which are created with a great deal of thought, care and love. In the gallery we know how important this is and the huge difference it makes to our mood and wellbeing. A beautiful painting can give you a different window on the world, it can rest the soul and nourish the mind. So we promise we will always try to present to you works that will make you feel better, that lift your spirits, and bring great joy. Have a look now at our Winter Shop
A WINTER'S TALEA new collection of work from Sabina Pieper
London based artist Sabina Pieper presents stunning new works on paper. Inspired by the regal and imperious women of Elizabethan times, her beautifully crafted Gothic portraits are intriguing and captivating. Sabina adorns her subjects with elaborate costumes, embellished wtih weird and wonderful objects, from savoy cabbages to duck feet, from spooky skulls to birds feathers. Their faces however are wistful, sensitively drawn, with an air of mystery. These incredible portraits are the ultimate statement pieces.
JEAN JONES - DARTMOOR'S FORGOTTEN PAINTEROnce proclaimed the new Van Gogh, the legacy of Jean Jones is being reclaimed 3 - 24 October 2020
Jean Jones (1927-2012) was an extraordinary painter. Born in London she moved with her family to Devon so that her father could recover from four years in the trenches during The Great War. So began a life-long fascination with the wild rugged landscapes of Dartmoor. Dogged by mental ill health all her life she never quite reached the dizzy heights hinted at by her critics and supporters alike. In 1980 she had a solo exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford where her paintings were snapped up by J R R Tolkein, William Golding and Iris Murdoch, who was a great fan. Now, some forty years later we are exhibiting her work once more to reclaim her legacy and her rightful place in the history of art.
