Overview
More
Artwave West, with its stylish open plan viewing space, specialist museum lighting and crisp uncluttered décor provides a superb place to enjoy looking at and contemplating artworks. The gallery has established itself as one of the principal independent contemporary art venues in the Southwest, by carefully selecting artists and attracting professional practitioners with impressive national and international exhibiting profiles. A number of regular Artwave West artists are frequently nominated for prestigious exhibitions and awards in cultural capitals such as London, New York and Venice. A lively programme of frequently changing exhibitions together with a large stock of additional artwork guarantees there is always something new to view. This year has seen the addition of a teaching Academy next to the gallery where a wide selection of Art Courses take place run by Exhibiting Artists and professional tutors.

I went to the gallery with the sole purpose of viewing a friend’s work. But as well as that, I really enjoyed chatting to the owner. I’m no art expert and he gave me a real insight into abstract work. Definitely worth a visit.

Thank Chasda

Great fun, relaxed course which gave us ideas and helped us develop a piece of work. Light airy studio to work in and small groups with all materials provided. Great value. The Gallery itself is fantastic with varied and interesting artwork from high calibre artists....More

This is the place to visit to find paintings that are always vibrant and often challenging (in a nice way!) You won't be disappointed.
