I first came across the South Gate gallery a couple of months ago and I am really pleased that I crossed that threshold and spoke to the Owners. The gallery is an independent business run by a very friendly couple who are very experienced and extremely helpful.
The choice and quality of the frames is extensive, and the advice is there if you need it to select the best frame for your picture. Having shopped around for frames, I would say that you get very good value for money at this gallery. If you are in Exeter head to South Street which is just behind the Cathedral and take a look! I highly recommend it.

Frame makers are so very important to painters, you always hope there is a connection and sensitive understanding for each other. When Sallyanne decided to sell Southgate Gallery I was naturally concerned, but decided to stay and see how we got on. I need not have worried one jot. Andrew and Gill, are not only lovely people, they go out of their way to get the best results. They have a natural understanding of what's needed and are so kind and gentle. My frames are certainly not the easiest to make and I am very pleased and happy with the results.

Dear owner, I would like to thank you very much for your help in framing my ‘Enchanted Forest’ in such record time. I do appreciate your prompt response. We all admired your fine work and were delighted with the timing.
