About Us

David Simon worked for an established contemporary art gallery in Mayfair, London, after gaining  a degree in History of Art. He became the Gallery Manager and oversaw international art fairs and exhibitions in Europe and the USA. In 2006 he opened his first gallery in Clifton, Bristol, specialising in established and emerging contemporary British artists. Six years later, he moved his gallery to Bath where it continued to grow and where David also developed various charitable arts projects in the city over the years, including helping raise funds for The Holburne Museum, and Bath Abbey where he was married to Lucy in 2013.

In 2019 the gallery moved to its current, larger, premises on the high street of Castle Cary, a beautiful, historic market town close to Bruton. The town is conveniently located within 10 minutes' drive of the A303 and has its own mainline train station (to Paddington).

The gallery shows monthly changing exhibitions of new work from their stable of some fifty contemporary artists. Interspersed with these shows is a growing programme of work from a number of artists' Estates and large-scale exhibitions of 20th and 21st Century Masters' original works on paper. Notable examples since 2020 were exhibitions of Picasso works on paper, a School of Paris exhibition, including works by Dali, Dufy, Miró, Chagall, Giacometti, Matisse, Braque and Magritte; and St Ives Modernists which included original paintings and signed works on paper by Patrick Heron, Terry Frost, Ben Nicholson and William Scott. The gallery regularly stocks signed, original prints by Modern British artists including David Hockney, Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron, William Scott and Henry Moore.

If you are looking to start or grow your art collection, David is happy to advise and source work through his personal network of established contacts across the art world, from a small number of the most highly regarded and reputable dealers and auction houses globally. Investing in high quality art continues to be one of the safest and most rewarding undertakings in life, for your personal and cultural enjoyment and your family's future.
