The Gallery is located on Ilfracombe’s picturesque seafront. Once inside you will find a large selection of paintings created by talented local artists. From local seascapes and harbour scenes to studies of beautiful North Devon and Exmoor there’s something to suit everyone’s taste.
The locally made craft work selection is just as varied. On show there’s stained glass work, hand created glass sculptures and glass jewellery items, pottery, woodturning, forged ironwork, handmade cards, sewn and knitted creations as well as hand carved walking sticks and locally made violins.
The Gallery, generally recognised as being one of the best Art and Craft Galleries in North Devon, was created some 40 years ago and is financed entirely by members of the Ilfracombe Art & Crafts Society. As a charity (Registered Charity no. 1168685) we are committed to donate to local good causes and charities each year, there is also an on-going raffle for a painting of your choice from three superb pictures that are offered.
A visit to the Gallery is a must for your holiday itinerary, a pleasant and memorable way to pass an hour or so.
