Whilst Petronilla Silver ran the gallery, it specialised in bringing exceptional contemporary fine and applied art to the South West. Artists and designers of national and international significance were exhibited alongside new talent, including paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints, photography, sculpture, metalwork, ceramics, glass, weaving and jewellery. Many of these artists can now be seen by appointment in London. E-mail: petronilla@petronillasilver.co.uk
