Baxters Gallery, Dartmouth, Devon
Baxters was established in July 2006 when Sarah Duggan took over Hartworks Gallery. After too many years of saying "one day, I'll own a gallery", Sarah decided that Dartmouth and Baxters would be where she would enjoy life and her passion for the arts. The bright and airy space of Baxters on the corner of Foss St and Flavel St shows off the best in contemporary art, printmaking, craft and jewellery. The atmosphere is relaxed and hopefully inspiring, allowing you to take your time in choosing from established and new artists. Several themes are evident, a strong inspiration from the Devon & Cornwall coastline captured by many of the artists.
Baxter Gallery will be stocking specially made coastal themed piece from my Good Advice, and Wordsmith collections and some items from the Keys Rings collection as well from July 2012.

Trinkets & Treasures
New Pieces In The Trinket Collection
Alys tried hard to resist the lure of old photographs but something about them draws her towards them again and again. This time they are creeping into the Trinket collection. They sit so well with the lost treasures used to create the collection of rings, necklaces and earrings. And add a whole new layer of lives lived and forgotten histories. They will be up on the website in the next few weeks and you will be able to order and commission pieces using your own precious family photos.
