Moretonhampstead - Dartmoor National Park
Green Hill is Dartmoor's leading dedicated Art Gallery and Shop.
Based in Moretonhampstead and one of Devon's most prominent Art Galleries, Green Hill is attracting the attention of some of the most respected South West Artists. Names such as Peter Randall-Page, Susan Derges, and Peter Stiles have become synonymous with Green Hill over the last four years having exhibited in the Gallery's large attractive contemporary space, and supported the Gallery’s developing programme.
The Art Shop offers space for artists to exhibit and sell their work from paintings, prints and ceramics through to textiles, wood and ironwork.Within this imaginatively converted former Primary School there are studio and creative workspaces for hire, mixed use offices, a Youth Centre and Heritage Archive.
From Bronze Age settlements to this year’s carnival, you can explore Moretonhampstead’s rich heritage at Greenhill. Touch-screen presentations, visual materials and locally written books and pamphlets are on permanent display together with exhibitions in the gallery. If you would like help researching the history of local people and places, please look at the wealth of archive materials at Green Hill listed at www.moretonarchives.org.uk and some are also reproduced at www.moretonhampstead.org.uk. Use the contact tab on either website if you have any inquiries or would like to consult the archives in person. Please let us know also if you have any documents, photos or artefacts of local people and places that we could archive or make a copy for the archives.
Measuring just over 56 m² the exhibition space is contemporary, light and airy, offering a versatile backdrop for any installation. The adaptable hanging system is discrete and the lighting precise, allowing for subtlety and drama whether work is hung or freestanding.
The space is available for hire at certain times within the planned programme with curatorial assistance. PR and event previews can be organised. A new exhibition is held roughly every six weeks offering visitors a varied programme of contemporary visual art, explored through associated talks and presentations.
Green Hill reinforces its presence in the community by regularly drawing in local artists; an annual 'Local Open' showcases work from around Dartmoor. The aim is to stimulate curiosity through Art which captures the imagination and allows exposure to new mediums and genres.
We have some light airy studios available for lease for 3 or 6 month periods at Green Hill. The studios are on low-cost, easy in/easy out terms with stand alone workspace. We have a vibrant active artistic community here at Green Hill and are always looking for other artists/crafts people to join us. There are opportunities to show your work when you take on a studio and to have open studio sessions.
We also have office space for creative industries available to let at Green Hill too. Why not join our new, mixed use community development based in Moretonhampstead with our active, resident arts and crafts community. Get in touch via our contact page to check room specifications, availability and prices.
