Since 2012 I have organised exhibitions in my gallery, a converted barn on a working farm. They are often held in conjunction with Somerset Art Week, a two week event every Sep/Oct. I have also started having a pre-Christmas show around the mid/end of November.
I find artists who’s work I like and respect and ask them to join me, trying particularly to promote those that live on Exmoor and the South West, and others, who although not local, share my passion for the moor. I have mostly continued the main theme of ‘Exmoor’ and the N.Devon/Somerset coast, thereby creating a gallery for Exmoor. I also like to involve one or two emerging artists, offering a chance to hang their pictures, often for the first time.
