The Salar Gallery opened in the centre of this small market town in 1991 to provide an exhibition space for local artists and craftsmen.
To find us, from the Town Car park, pass Roger Dean's Sheep sculpture and on reaching Bridge Street, turn left, pass the Supermarket, and we are a short way up on the left.
Our opening times for Gallery and Exhibitions are as follows Tues/Thurs/Fri/Sats 10am to 1pm & 2 to 5pm Other times and days by appointment.
The Gallery celebrates the West Country landscape, animals and rural subjects through the eyes of artists (painters, sculptors, photographers and writers.) living in the area.

We also stock craftwork, prints, cards, candles, jewellery, local interest/local history books, (including James Ravilious' photographs) and local honey from Vivian's Honey and we run a Picture Framing Service.

A wide variety of work from up to 60 artists and craftsmen can be purchased.. You are most welcome to browse (and shop!)
We hold exhibitions solo, group or theme through much of the year.

Meeth Deadwood

Introductory Exhibition of Paintings
and Drawings

 by Peter Baker ASGFA
(Devon Wildlife Trust Artist-in-Residence)
17th July – 13th September 2014

Artist and retired teacher Peter Baker moved to the area just a few years ago – little realising that the Devon Wildlife Trust were about to open their newest nature reserve in the old Meeth china clay pits and quarries – right on his doorstep. He made contact with Devon Wildlife Trust and became DWT Artist-in-Residence and has spent the past year exploring and recording the changing landscapes of the Reserve over the seasons. This exhibition includes many new paintings and drawings informed by the Meeth reserve, as well as others – including boats and figurative work – which he completed before his move.
