Based in the beautiful seaside town of Kingsbridge, Mayne Gallery is nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of the main street; a mere stones throw away from the creek and surrounded by likeminded independents.
The gallery is owned and run by Jane, alongside her family. She has always had an interest in and admiration for art. When training to be a nurse in London, she'd often spend her days off admiring collections in the Tate Britain.
In 1996, now married with 3 girls, Jane & Graham made the decision to move from Surrey to Kingsbridge, to work together and create a family life that allowed them to spend more time with their girls.
Having sold his company, Graham and Jane started a small framing business working from surrey. After 4 years of working with interior designers, they came across Mayne Gallery in Kingsbridge; it was the perfect space to showcase their love for art and grow even closer as a family.
Mayne Gallery was already established when they moved here 23 years ago. Although the name remained the same, the space was lovingly overhauled. Having refurbished the shop, Jane and Graham dramatically increased the selection of framing solutions and completely changed the style of artwork for sale; bringing a fresh, contemporary and exciting feel to the gallery.
The collection of pieces at Mayne Gallery are carefully curated; inspirational art that can start a conversation, pieces that have been created by unique talent and carry the creators’ endeavour and passion in bold fashion.
Mayne Gallery continues to identify and showcase compelling and thought provoking pieces. Exhibiting an eclectic mix of exceptional local and international artists, Mayne features:
The gallery boasts longstanding relationships with a number of highly collectable artists including John Donaldson, Ruby Keller, James Bonstow and Bryan Hanlon.
How and where you display art is of great importance. Mayne understand this, providing a bespoke framing service that is designed to display the works to their best advantage and compliment your personal style. Not only is this service tailored to your specific requirements, all materials are conservation standard to keep each piece safe, and the wood mouldings are sustainably sourced.
Exclusivity is an exciting element of any art collection! Mayne Gallery carry exclusive originals, including artists exhibits that are not found anywhere in the South Hams area.
"We showcase outstanding works of art from both emerging and established artists from national and international artists. We hope you enjoy discovering the works we have on view here at Mayne Gallery and if you are in town please feel free to pop in and say hello.” Jane
