Exmouth Art Group In their own words
From inception in 1946 when seven artists formed what was to become Exmouth Art Group, we continue to provide a forum for practicing artists, and those sharing a cultural interest, and to encourage an appreciation of the visual arts. With no restrictions on joining we have a dynamic membership of over 200 with a broad range of age, experience, ability and locality. The positive effect of a creative environment is undoubtedly beneficial to all, the professional practitioner, enthusiastic amateur and observer, and embedded in our aims is an ambition to embrace the widest demographic including a younger generation. We are very much a community group with established links with Exmouth Community College, local primary schools, the Kite Festival, Exmouth in Bloom and Exmouth Festival and have raised funds for numerous organisations through our charity raffles of members’ paintings. A new initiative ‘Back to Art’ will offer sessions to help those lacking confidence explore their own creative skills. And finally, our members have responded so creatively to the Migration theme we think their work deserves to be seen by a wider public. To celebrate their diverse and wonderful talents in such a prestigious gallery is an opportunity too good to miss.
