STRAND ART GALLERY BRIXHAM ARTISTS at STRAND ART GALLERY
Established in 1972, Strand Art Gallery has been home to the artists of BRIXHAM for nearly 40 years.
The community of artists paint in the open studios nearly every day, all year round, and the public are invited to come and watch them and ask questions. Finished paintings are displayed in the large gallery exhibition space, and can be purchased. Commissions can be placed, and previously sold works spanning 40 years can be seen on the gallerys' extensive database.
Emphasis is on marine and landscape art, by many of the South-West's most well-known and prolific artists, including Gordon Allen, Bill Stockman, Terry Burke, Donald Ayres, Peter Duffield, Bob Tucker, John Graham, Alicia, and David Deakins. The beauty of Devon is expressed in many sensitive paintings, and the exhibition is an ongoing 'rolling' exhibition, as paintings are sold, new paintings take their place.
The gallery has the most beautiful location in Devon, in the heart of Brixham harbourside, right opposite the William of Orange statue, on the first floor. Photographers are welcome to come in and use the gallery window to photo stunning views of Brixham harbour, described by others as the 'most beautiful harbour in England'. The harbour outside, with its dramatic tide changes, and hustle and bustle of fishing-port life, is constant inspiration to the artists, as the ever-changing light lends endless beauty to the captivating scenes.
