Bohun Gallery in Henley-on-Thames specialises in contemporary British fine art. Work shown includes paintings, sculpture, watercolours, drawings, original prints, and ceramics.
Artists represented range from the young and promising to recognised and respected figures such as John Piper, Elisabeth Frink, Donald Hamilton Fraser, Mary Fedden and Eric Rimmington. The Gallery also represents the estate of Julian Trevelyan.
Bohun Gallery holds a lively and varied exhibition programme with up to nine feature exhibitions every year, plus an annual show of sculpture in the garden. Since it was established in 1973, the Bohun has become known for its friendly, welcoming and personal service.

Louis Turpin enjoyed a near sell-out private view of his new paintings at Bohun Gallery on Saturday 14th September. 'A Passion for Gardens' received prestigious media attention culminating in an exclusive interview and photographic shoot with the 'Daily Telegraph' for Turpin. It was hardly surprising therefore, that the private view was so well attended and that over twenty paintings had sold by the time Bohun closed their doors at 2pm. It was not only art collectors who attended the private view but also a great number of leading lights of the gardening world, including the head gardener from Great Dixter and a visiting garden curator from Japan.
To the delight of Bohun Gallery's Director Patricia Jordan Evans, the celebrated sculptor Alan Caiger-Smith attended the private view. Caiger-Smith, to whose work there is a room devoted at Reading Museum, founded Aldermaston Potter and is considered to be one of leading ceramicists of the 20th Century. He has a long association with the Bohun Gallery having exhibited with them since the 1970s and more recently Bohun Gallery was involved in commissioning a portrait of Caiger-Smith by Jennifer MacRae for the Reading Museum.
Alan Caiger-Smith is being honoured with a retrospective show at Great Dixter later this year - one of the very gardens Louis Turpin featured in the current exhibition.
