Salcombe Lifeboats Art Fair: 16-18 August at Holy Trinity Church, Salcombe

Salcombe Lifeboats Art Fair starts tomorrow!

As a sailor, I support the RNLI and, in particular, the lifeboats in Salcombe and Hope Cove. Without the brave crews who man the lifeboats, many a sailor would be lost. Their equipment and training is expensive, so I am delighted to have been invited by the Friends of Salcombe Lifeboat to support this charitable event.

Where is the Loft Gallery?

The Loft Gallery is situated behind the Fortescue Inn, and above a popular shoe shop, on a delightful footpath called Victoria Quay, which overlooks one of the best views in the UK including the mooring berth of the RNLI lifeboat Baltic Exchange III.


When will I be there to greet you?

I will be stewarding at the Loft Gallery all day on Sunday 29 May and from 2pm on Saturday 4 June. I hope you see you there!


Can’t afford to buy my paintings!

Nearly all of the images on sale in my one-man exhibition are also available as fine art greetings cards. Only a short distance from the Loft Gallery, you have the choice of buying these ‘man cards’ at Bonningtons, the newsagents, or at Salcombe Information Centre.
