Converted from a traditional Devon Roundhouse (threshing barn), the Gallery is octagonal in shape, with a mix of old stone and white painted walls. The floor is tiled in grey slate. A massive tree trunk, used to turn the threshing wheels, acts as the main roof support beam. Careful consideration has been given to both lighting and general flexibility, so the space can be used to display both art and craft to maximum effect. The Gallery is available for private exhibitions and functions (art or craft based only) but otherwise, all studio holders are encouraged to display their work and invite customers and clients to visit. The Gallery hosts an annual Summer and Christmas Open Studio, showcasing and selling the work of the studio occupiers.
THE GALLERY WILL BE HOLDING THE KIGBEARE CHRISTMAS MARKET ON THE 26TH AND 27TH NOVEMBER FROM 10AM TO 4PM – IF THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE IN THE GALLERY THAN JUST YOUR PARTY, MASKS ARE APPRECIATED, AND SOCIAL DISTANCING SHOULD BE OBSERVED.
