The Gallery


White Moose is a contemporary art gallery situated in the old ceramic quarter of Barnstaple. It presents work by both new and established artists through a varied and high-quality programme of innovative exhibitions.


White Moose identifies, promotes and nurtures new artists working in a variety of media. We invite national and international artists to interact with the South West region’s culture, heritage and environment through site specific and gallery-based projects.


The gallery hosts exhibitions, artist seminars, workshops, projects, talks, residencies and many other art-focused events.
