Exhibitions at Salar Gallery:
After a break of over 3 years due to the Pandemic and other things, we are at last having another exhibition! Details below:
Wildlife paintings (& prints) by local artist Steve Savage.
Steve loves nature, the outdoors, and animals. He always enjoyed drawing as a child and teenager but then had little time for it due to other commitments till nearly 40 years later when he moved to Devon and joined his local art group.
With a variety of pastels (pan, stick, pencil) he found he could create realistic and vibrant animal paintings. His focus almost always starts with the eyes which sets the mood and detail for the rest of the painting, and he is fascinated by the different shapes and colours of animal eyes and how and why they differ between species.
Steve has been on a number of safaris to Africa to see some of his favourite big cats, elephants, birds, and other animals in their natural habitat. He also loves painting pets and wild animals native to the UK.
From 11th November (Hatherleigh Carnival day) to 30th November
At Salar Gallery (lower exhibition room)
Opening times as for Gallery.
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.
Artists & Makers at Salar
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.
