Galleries – Framing – Cafe – Artists’ Studios
Eighteen 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 Coach House Gallery where you will find original prints, paintings and a variety of ceramics from makers around the country.
Room one and two upstairs in the Coach House, are now working artist studios.
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.
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 five artists studios on site.
Susan Birth – Mixed Media Artist
Dan Holden – Abstract Artist
Karen Dewson – Fused glass Artist
the two remaining studios can be found on the first floor in the Coach House.
Jennifer Ng – Chinese Ink and Watercolour Artist
Jane Arthur – Textile Artist
Each artist has their own studio and 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.

It is a really positive addition to our site; bringing artwork alive and offering visitors the opportunity to discuss art directly with the artists.
The Studios are usually open Tuesday to Saturday 10-4.
