For centuries artists of all types have been drawn to Dartmoor by its imposing landscapes and ever-changing light conditions. Described by writers and poets as one of the last remaining wildernesses in Britain, the rugged moorland terrain and ancient thatched villages have inspired artists, traditional and contemporary, local and international.
Visitors to Dartmoor, compelled to take away a unique record of their experience, have generated a thriving environment for art galleries and on-line art retailers, many of whom are featured on this site. Some of the more established artists command high prices but there are many contemporary painters whose works exchange hands for more modest amounts and offer visitors the chance to acquire original art at a genuinely affordable cost.
