Darl-e and the Bear is a new venture showcasing exceptional contemporary visual arts. We have an eclectic approach to the curated, commissioned and element of chance happenings, promoting quality craftsmanship from our artists, makers and designers, working with integrity and imagination within the disciplines of Fine Art – Craft – Design.
We represent established and emerging artists and the gallery offers a warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere to help you create bespoke, decorated living spaces.
Our two listed buildings are situated in the heart of historic Woodstock.
As well as our main gallery space we also hold regular exhibitions, talks from Art historians and Creators and special events.
The galleries are available for hire and we welcome other creatives, individuals and businesses to use our lovely spaces for exhibitions and private events.
All our exhibitions are accessible via our Virtual Exhibition Room on our website, we also have a small area that is dedicated to eco friendly useable products, also available online.
We try to work as ethically as possible, and this ethos runs right through our space, from using recycled and compostable packing materials, to supporting artists and makers to work as environmentally friendly as possible, whilst avidly supporting our chosen environmental charities with our profits and events.
Our services include, gift vouchers, a wedding list service, personal champagne tours of the gallery or exhibitions, and out of hours private visits, for those who cannot make our opening hours.
We welcome you to join us for a coffee or glass of wine whilst you browse, or to sit in our beautiful walled garden while you ponder upon happy thoughts.
