Art Gallery 

At the west end of the Kerswell Farmhouse Barn is the former milking parlour of the farm, now converted into a small but exciting art gallery showing the collection of British Studio Arts (BSA). BSA was founded by Graham Hawkins in Kuwait 1996 with the prime objective of exhibiting and selling the work of the best of modern British studio artists. It focussed initially on studio ceramics but broadened to include glassmakers, painters, jewellers, photographers, textile artists and silversmiths. 
With the support of The British Council, British artists came to Kuwait including the painter Paul Riley and the potter Peter Sparrey, successful ventures which were followed by BSA running three British Embassy sponsored British Art Festivals in 2000-2002 and 23 exhibitions at local galleries and the National Galleries of Kuwait and Bahrain. For his services to British art in Kuwait, Graham was given a Business Excellence Award by the British Business Forum in 2000. Exhibitions after 2005 included one person shows for the painters Endre Roder, George Lewis and Alan Reed. 
When Graham moved back to Devon in 2010 he decided to adapt his business to the Devon scene and currently represents 23 ceramicists, 3 glassmakers, 9 painters and 2 photographers. A wide range of work is on sale in the gallery including pieces by:
