A wonderful Free Exhibition awaits those who have an interest in the artistic heritage of this small port. Brixham has been the home port of many artists who grew upin the war years and have left us with their recollections of what the conflict was like in vivid colour.

The Strand Art Gallery presents its Victory Exhibition of original artwork by Brixham`s artists commemorating WW2. The paintings on display include classic originals including Victory flights, Army vehicles, sinking of the Bismarck, Spitfires, Gloucester Gladiators, and Hercules Bombers, war time Churston Station and Brixham Railway Station during the period.

The studio in which many still paint is today run by Gina and Andrew Stockman direct descendants of their famous father Bill Stockman whose famous work adorns local, national and international homes.

The entrance is tucked away up the stairway to an original sail-loft opposite the Prince William of Orange Statue on the quayside.

It is well worth a visit and is open daily 10am-5pm, admission free.

The Strand Art Gallery is at N02 The Strand, Brixham Harbour side, TQ5 8EH. Tel: 01803 854762
