Driftwood Gallery

  • Address: 19 St James Place
  • Postcode: EX34 9BJ
  • Telephone: 01271 862590
  • About:

    Acclaimed artist Doug Hyde will be visiting Driftwood Gallery in Ilfracombe this August 18th 4pm - 6pm.

    Doug will be attending a special exhibition of his works, including Original pieces, sought after Signed Limited Editions, and exquisite sculptures.

    Doug Hyde was named "UK's Most Popular Living Artist" (BBC) after winning an award from the Fine Art Trade Guild as the "Best Selling Published Artist 2005". His family are of utmost importance to him and when creating a new piece, he aims to evoke the same emotions and connections that he feels and observes within his own family.

    Doug Hyde's work with children's charities; "Look Good, Feel Better", "Families for Children" and "Children in Need" is not only indicative of his love for family but also a testament to his success on British and International platforms.

    The Ilfracombe Gallery was the first of the Driftwood Contemporary family, established in 2001 on the Quayside. The gallery was relocated in August 2013 to the new prominent and larger premises on St. James Place, just a short stroll from our former location.

    Our range of artists, both nationally and internationally renowned, is quite exceptional with a wonderful selection of different styles. We really do offer something for everyone!
