SHAF Arts Trail 2023

After a long break – lockdown, house moves – I’m delighted to confirm that I will be taking part in the South Hams Art Forum (SHAF) Arts Trail this year.

Make a note in your diary!

A welcome awaits you

As ever, there will be tea/coffee and cake. Lots of cake!

And we will be delighted to show you our new ‘gallery’ with my original paintings to view.

Plus my new studio, where I’m currently working on four paintings.

Plus the usual affordable art items: giclée prints, mugs, place mats, coasters, cushions, fridge magnets, key rings,, purses, pill boxes – and my fine art greetings cards.

We can take cards, as well as cash …

Parking at Fields End

Our new home is at the very bottom of Thurlestone Mead – aptly named Fields End – and you need to park on our drive, rather than in the road or the turning circle (local rules apply!). There is room for 6 cars, so we don’t anticipate problems …

Let’s pray for fine weather?

Art at Tidal Gallery

Sadly, the closure of Beacon House Gallery has meant the majority of my artwork going into store while Anne and I find ourselves a new home in the South Hams.

Stage one is complete: the sale of Beacon House. Stage two commences on 1 October when we move into a winter let. Stage three is to find a bungalow and move into it before 1 April 2022. If you have one to sell – let us know!

One door closes; another opens!

But, I’m delighted to announce that a selection of my original paintings are now on available at the Tidal Gallery in Kingsbridge and/or via their website.

Anna Ventura visited us at Beacon House a while back and chose six paintings to offer at Tidal Gallery:

Click the links in the list above to see the details for each individual painting or check out my artist page on the Tidal Gallery website to see them all.

Anna is also stocking a wide range of my fine art greetings cards.

Thanks, Anna!

When will my other artworks be available?

The plan is to make my art – including the affordable art range and my fine art greetings cards – available online in the near future. Watch this space!

Meanwhile, you can always contact me if you have a specific requirement.

Closing down sale ends 31 August

Beacon House Gallery is closing at noon on Tuesday 31 August.

Until then – rather than put my stock of paintings into store while we find a new home – all the original artworks on display in our gallery at Beacon House are on sale – at half the listed price.

Check the website to see what’s available?

If you are interested in buying a painting and/or want to arrange a private viewing, please telephone Anne on 07721 695044.
