Have been to several exhibitions, my favourite was their one that brought art and dementia together. Might sound weird, but if you know a dementia suffered it was amazing. They also participate in the Devon Art festival where you can buy great... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We are so happy you enjoy our exhibitions. The art and dementia exhibition was 'Recollection' which included Jenni Dutton's Dementia Darnings which many visitors found particularly poignant especially those who have been touched by dementia. We look forward to welcoming you again soon! More
