The gallery specialises in contemporary art and sculpture by living artists, including many established and emerging artists who were either born, studied or now live in the West Country; as well as others who take inspiration from the unique landscape, character, light and atmosphere of this special area in their work.

Somerset), Robert Crisp (based in Devon), Richard Dack (lives and works in Devon), Stephanie Dees (inspired by the West Country), David Farrant (lives and works in Devon), David Farren (b.

Gallery manager, Carole Teagle told ArtsCulture: “We are very pleased to be taking part in the inaugural Devon Art Fair. We have a special relationship with the West Country and its artists; and this is a great opportunity for us to share with a broad audience how the region has both produced and inspired so many talented artists.”
All the artists represented by Red Rag have exhibited widely and their work is held in public and private collections in the UK and elsewhere.
