Art gallery in West Devon
Welcome to Salar Gallery
The Salar Gallery opened in 1991 (the same year as the Tarka Trail) and celebrates the landscape, animals, and heritage of rural Devon and Dartmoor as seen through the work of painters, photographers, and writers in the area, and art & craftwork in glass, wood, ceramics, and other materials. It holds exhibitions, solo, group, or theme, in its exhibition rooms from time to time. The gallery shop also sells prints, greeting cards, St Eval candles, St Justin Jewellery, and there’s a charity corner with cards, artwork, etc. where part of the sale price goes to various charities.
The gallery is located on the level in the centre of Hatherleigh, not far from the town carpark and Roger Dean’s Sheep sculpture (farmers & sheep at market).
Artists & Makers at Salar
Hatherleigh is an ancient market town of colour-washed cob and thatched cottages skirting narrow streets. The town is just off the A386, seven miles north of Okehampton and twelve miles south of RHS Rosemoor Gardens at Great Torrington, so the ideal stopping place between Dartmoor and Rosemoor with pubs and popular cafe for refreshments. On a clear day, walk to the top of Hatherleigh Moor for a panoramic view towards Dartmoor.
Tuesday is market day and a new pannier market is in the process of being built. When completed (in 2024) it will enable the Tuesday pannier market to move back onto the site of the old Livestock Market.
