About Us

Seventeen years of exhibitions have established Bevere Gallery as one of the leading UK ceramic showcases, not only in the eyes of our clients but also the significant number of ceramicists that we represent. The Gallery’s philosophy has remained a constant – to demonstrate and promote high level skills in contemporary studio ceramics, the range and diversity of making styles and support for new and emerging talent. Importantly, we also believe in setting work in the wider context of original prints and paintings. Representing over 100 ceramicists places Bevere alongside the best of the UK’s galleries and our exhibition schedules show that we continue to attract makers among the ceramic elite. (See our Events tab for forthcoming features) Informality is also an essential element here. A gallery where all are welcome and encouraged to look at, handle and talk freely and openly about what they see – like it or not! Engaging with our visitors is important – they need to be able to ask about what is in front of them and gain insights into the making and creative process. Bevere Gallery has maintained its standards over the last seventeen years and has taken the view that quality attracts visitors and sustains their interest. We continue to flourish because we deliver an important message about contemporary studio ceramics that makes such an important contribution to our cultural life.

2020 & 2021 afforded us the time and opportunity to make some changes to the business.  Some of our visitors may remember the Cafe on the ground floor of the Coach House building,  this is now our Original Prints Gallery where you will find work across all printmaking disciplines by over forty respected printmakers from around the country.

Refreshments are now offered on a counter service basis from the Stable Kitchen with covered and open seating in the old cafe garden and in our Pods and benches over looking the views towards Hawford, we also have our enclosed Community Pergola in the wooded area.

Room Two upstairs in the Coach House, is now a working artist studio and whilst Room One currently shows a range of contemporary original prints it too is about to become an artist studio from November.

The old deep litter chicken shed remains our Ceramics Gallery, but again we have changed our way of showing work which means that we can now display studio ceramics by over sixty makers at any one time with original paintings on the walls.

By the side of the Ceramics Gallery we still operate our busy Framing Department.

The timber framed building in our wooded area behind the gallery is home to three of the four, soon to be five, Yew Trees artists collaborative.

Susan Birth – Mixed Media Artist

Dan Holden – Abstract Artist

Jennifer Ng – Chinese Ink and Watercolour Artist

Richard Nicholls – Fine Art Photographer

Jane Arthur – Textile Artist (from November 2022)

Each artist has their own studio, Susan, Jennifer and Dan in the timber framed building in the wooded area,  Richard Nicholls and Jane Arthur (from November) upstairs in the Coach House.  Visitors are welcome to visit all of the studios, to see works in progress, to chat to the artists and purchase original pieces of art. There is also a shared exhibition space in the back building which is hung ‘gallery’ style from where you may also purchase original artwork.
