About Us

Gallery 5 on Island St in the heart of Salcombes ‘Art Quarter’ alongside boatbuilders and crafts workshops.

We’re proud of our establishment in the local community as well as our growth nationally and internationally. We have become a destination for art lovers who appreciate our diverse collections as well as our framing, consultation and courier services.

Thousands of annually returning clients bear testimony to the infinite appeal of creativity inspired by nature – art with a heart.

Begun ten years ago by resident painter and Trompe L’oeil artist John Aspden, we now fly the flag for many local artists whose work includes photography; ceramics; jewellery; and more recently sculptural timber designs. Growth over this time has been a  bit of a distilling process…work on display today speaks for itself, no explanations are required.

We choose our pieces carefully and being a coastal gallery its perhaps inevitable that the transcendent qualities found in nature – at sea, are at the core of their appeal. We are confident that our art will find its place effortlessly in your home/office/space – no matter what interior design or architectural style you have. From petite, delicate glassware and embroidery to dramatic canvases and elegant sculptural timber – come see for yourself…if you’re not convinced it will sit as happily in your space as it does in ours we’ll bring it to you – even hang it for you too! As well as consultations we have an excellent courier service and many of our artists work to commission too.

There are two car parks just two minutes away, pop along, you’ll find us opposite the gin distillery…warm welcomes await!
