The Robert Adam Gallery

The Robert Adam Gallery

Devon Sculpture Park has just opened its second indoor gallery, the Robert Adam Gallery. This stunning 500 year old bath stone building was extended and improved by Robert Adam around 270 years ago. Today it hosts the Robert Adam Gallery inside and on the terraces overlooking the sea and Capability Brown gardens.

This Paris salon-style gallery shows a mix of contemporary artists in two beautiful indoor rooms, including the extraordinary 35ft high dome room, and on two large Terraces outside. Here visitors enjoy contemporary art in an intimate and relaxed setting.

At opening you could find art from Tracey Emin, Chris Speyer, Teresa Wells, Bev Knowlden, Colin Porter, James Portsmouth and Philip Letts. The art changes every few months and select artworks are for sale.

You can even enjoy home made lunch or tea, coffee and cakes, including gluten free, inside the Robert Adam Gallery year round or out in the sun drenched terraces when the weather is fine.

We also hosts live music and other cultural events in the Robert Adam Gallery.

Devon Sculpture Park is open all year from Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm. Adult £12, children under 12 £6. Half price repeat visits with DSP Card.

Your Creative, Rewilded Retreat

Your Creative, Rewilded Retreat

Devon Sculpture Park is a creative, rewilded retreat. Refresh and reimagine surrounded by art, Wilded Capability Brown gardens, ancient waterways, wildlife and endless sea views.

‘One of the most beautiful gardens I have seen…’ Toby Buckland, gardener, TV presenter and author.

This timeless, historic retreat has been carefully restored to enable visitors to deepen their creative energies. A recent visitor described it as ‘a place in perfect harmony’. A place where raw, primitive environmental art settles alongside thought provoking conceptual sculpture and edgy Street art. Where art is place and the place is art. Where living sculpture can thrive.

Drop-in adults retreat for a few hours or the whole day for £12. View art, visit the Wilded Capability Brown gardens, understand Rewilding and talk with artists. Wander the cascade gardens and take in the endless sea views. Relax from bench to bench. Reach back in time. Lean into your inner self.

You can settle in at The Terraces for slow cooked, healthy cooking with relaxed, informal service.

Come to this extraordinary retreat to rest or sketch. Relax and write. Ponder or perform. Meditate or mediate. Design or draw. Film or photograph. Invent, co-create, make or simply reconnect. Find it here, Rewild yourself. Creatively retreat.

Companies, charities and public sector bodies can retreat for a day starting at £50 per person including room hire, lunch, refreshments, intro talk and walk plus access to the art exhibitions and Wilded Capability Brown gardens.

‘Art Wilded’ Exhibition

The inaugural outdoor exhibition in the Capability Brown gardens is ‘ART WILDED’ by resident artist Philip Letts. We are open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am – 4pm. Adults £12, children under 12 £6.

We also host group visits and guided tours. Book a Guided Art Tour – CLICK HERE.

The exhibition is a series of contemporary sculpture installations blending conceptual and abstract themes that examine the clash between modern society, technology, environment and nature. The overarching theme is ‘Man versus nature’.

Resident artist, Philip Letts, has been shown in leading art fairs across the world and has had a number of solo exhibitions in New York, London and Paris. He is best known for his relentless push into new media from abstract photography to mixed media, digital art, sculpture, installation and performance art. He focuses on urban culture and its relentless pressure on community and the environment.

Philip helps us challenge our place in the continuum of nature. Nature and urbanization are too often at odds leading to the degradation of the environment. It is more important than ever to work together to deal with climate change and the destruction of our land, wildlife and biodiversity.

‘Art Wilded’ is the first annual outdoor exhibition in the Capability Brown gardens at Devon Sculpture Park.
