One of the most prestigious art galleries in Devon, the Brook Gallery in Budleigh Salterton, came into existence in 1997 and since then has acquired an enviable reputation across the UK and beyond.
Well known for its reputation across the country for working with some of the world’s best known names, Brook Gallery’s expertise lies in its additional ability to sell and provide sourcing advice and consultancy to private and corporate buyers. Its success lies in its passion and integrity, which is key to the business, and which has enabled the Brook Gallery to expand into a large space in the centre of Exeter, which opend in March 2015. Located within an original Georgian style residence, this space showcases a diverse range of original works, and includes an extension of their repertoire from some of the most influential and established artists.
