Welcome to my World

Ems Coombes


Monday 18th February to Saturday 23rd February  ~ 10am - 4.45pm daily


'Welcome to my World' is a multimedia exhibition by Ems Coombes.

Ems is a disabled artist who has her fingers in many pies. Her watchword is fun but you can usually find her sleeping... or 'chilling' in her space.

This exhibition contains not only paintings and artwork but comedy, music and performance in the evenings.

The evening performances are donation based but are ticketed for number purposes.

An Exhibition of Contemporary Ceramic Sculptures

Art by Netha

Netha Begom Islam


Sunday 3rd March - opening event 12 noon - 3pm

Monday 4th March to Saturday 9th March  ~ 10am - 4.45pm daily


Netha’s art predominately navigates around her innate love of colour and the fascination of how colour impacts the human experience. The mystery of the human body and its relationship with the natural world within its permanently transient hues inspires her to explore that which can be unexplainable. She translates her enquiry using different mediums such as acrylics, oils, oil pastels, water colours and emulsion with techniques of layering, pointillism and abstract expressionism.  The exhibition will be an invitation to step out of the rationale and into the sensory within this eclectic mix of art work.

Dartmoor and more

Amy Chudley


Monday 11th March to Saturday 16th March  ~ 10am - 4.45pm daily


I am an oil painter living with my husband and three children in South West Devon and have been a full time Artist since the birth of my second child in 2007.

In the past I have concentrated predominantly on portraiture and figurative work, often with a narrative and a focus on female empowerment, although more recently my work has been with landscapes.

For the last few years I have had the privilege of attending a weekly class with Louise Courtnell who teaches traditional painting techniques with an emphasis on understanding tone. Training with Louise has really helped me to refine my own practice.

My current body of work is focused on Dartmoor, with regular trips into the landscape to paint. I'm loving the authenticity that completing paintings onsite is bringing my work, where capturing the location's changing light and weather provide me with a dynamic challenge.

Jaana Erkkilä-Hill


Monday 18th March to Saturday 23rd March  ~ 10am - 4.45pm daily


Jaana Erkkilä-Hill is interested in the spiritual and metaphysical dimensions of life. She brings legends and invisible worlds into life in her multi-coloured woodcuts. Some of the creatures in her images live in holes and caves or under the bare sky, like deviants of the world, still so different from human beings.

Jaana lives in Finland and South West England, Totnes, in UK. Living in two countries has raised also a question about what is a home in contemporary world, how do we define concepts like belonging, home territory; to be at home or to be away from somewhere.

Jaana Erkkilä-Hill is an artist and the Professor of Visual arts in University of Lapland. Her research interests are in artistic thinking, nature, silence and meaning of art in society.
