If you are in Ilfracombe, North Devon this year, go down to 8 High Street and check out the beautiful seascapes that are on display at Jessica Dove’s gallery.  www.galleryjessicadove.com

After running a very successful party shop in Oxford for many years, Jessica Dove opened her gallery in June 2013 with the aim to brighten up the heart of the popular seaside resort. She talks about the town in an interview with northdevonjournal.co.uk:

Since being erected on Ilfracombe Pier in 2012, Damien Hirst’s 60ft bronze statue has polarised opinion in the town. VERITY has become the flagship of art within Ilfracombe, according to the mayor, but residents have not disputed that Verity has attracted more visitors to the area, including an influx of artists who are all contributing to the town’s art scene, which has definitely become more lively since Verity’s arrival.

She goes on:

Obviously most people are going down to the harbour to see Damian Hirst’s sculpture Verity, but I am hoping they will also come up to the High Street, because I have many local and international artists in here. I am also very excited about presenting some of Ric Horner’s striking seascapes of Woolacombe Beach and the Harbour, where Damian Hirst’s famous restaurant The Quay is situated. http://11thequay.co.uk.
