South Gate Gallery

Andrew and Gill Birnie would be delighted to welcome you to South Gate Gallery which is situated next to the White Hart Hotel in South Street and is only a short walk from Exeter Cathedral. South Gate is an independent family-run art gallery and picture framers offering a wide selection of affordable original, limited and open edition art, both framed and unframed.

You are very welcome to call in and browse our gallery at 64 South Street where we have a variety of artwork on display. Whilst we have over 150 pictures and sculptures in the gallery we have many more displayed on this website. Please let us know by phone or email if you wish to view any artwork shown on website and we will arrange for it to be transported to the gallery for viewing.

Our bespoke framing service employs traditional methods and skills using the finest equipment and materials available today. All framing is undertaken in-house to the Fine Art Trade Guild standards. We specialise in high-quality conservation framing.

Kris Cooper

Kris has a talent for telling a story in graphite drawings with subtle light and dark shadows as a backdrop. His subjects are highlighted using a strong colour in collage enabling a three-dimensional affect encouraging the viewers into the story.

His pictures are also included on our website and can be viewed by selecting Kris Cooper under “Browse by Artist”
