Bellmans' very own, Josse Davis, is once again supporting the annual Arundel Gallery Trail this August
After its absence last year, the Arundel Gallery Trail is back and underway. It is now in its 32nd year, having started in 1989 by founder members Ann Sutton, Oliver Hawkins, Renee Bodimeade and Derek Davis, the father of Bellman's very own, Joss Davis. Joss Davis attended the first meeting and has shown every summer since through his involvement of Duff Gallery, Arundel. This year there is a change to the established dates, as the trail is running for an extended seventeen days, stretched out over August, with the intention this year to spread out the numbers of public viewing per day. Further details can be found here.
Established in 1968 by Derek Davis, the Internationally renowned potter and painter, Duff Gallery is a small independent art gallery that opens during the Arundel Gallery Trail and by Private View only. The Gallery exhibits ceramics by Derek's son, the talented Josse Davis and other invited artists during the Arundel Gallery Trail.
The Duff Gallery will be open 12 noon until 5 pm, Thursday to Sunday each week, plus the Bank Holiday Monday. Find out more here and discover the quirky, wonderful world of Josse's work, featuring stunning collections of dog heads, long dogs, penguins, bunnies, dogs and rehomed dogs, polar bears, birds and perspective pots amongst others.
Other artists on show at the Duff Gallery include Karen Ongley-Snook (Glass Art), Liz Shippam (Botanical Paintings) and Melissa Alers Hankey (Ceramics & Linocuts).
