Our story

Vandlys Galleri is a contemporary art gallery and exhibition space.

We represent established and emerging artists, currently promoting painters and printmakers, alongside studio ceramic and glass, sculpture, and unique pieces. The Gallery is situated on the Piazza Terracina, by Exeter Quayside in a vibrant quarter of the City, with established independent cafés, restaurants, a unique brewery, and an award-winning bakery.

“I want to create a space fuelled by the enormous creative talent within Exeter and the wider southwest. Vandlys, meaning water and light, draws on my Danish heritage; it reflects a long obsession with the possibilities of these elements within my own practice. Once the right premises became available on the quay the time was right, and the name is inspired by this special place where the City meets water and light in ever-changing combinations”.
