Art groups compete at RAMM
4 April 2019
Three Devon art groups are competing for the 2019 Devon Live Local Art Show: Exmouth Art Group, Teignmouth Art Society and Topsham Art Group. The winning group will display their work in gallery 22 from 11 to 30 June.
Selecting the winner
Devon Live will publicise the work of the groups throughout April. Their readers will select the winner. The theme for the 2019 competition is Migration; the museum’s over-arching theme for the year.
VOTE NOW for your favourite group.
The winning group will be announced on Thursday 9 May.
Rachel Sutton, Exeter’s Lead Councillor for Economy and Culture, explains “With the annual Local Art Show we aim to recognise, reward and foster creativity in the city. We hope that the Migration theme of the 2019 competition will inspire art groups in Devon to once again produce stunning work and another memorable exhibition. Following six-year’s support by the Express & Echo, this year’s sponsorship is by their digital sister, Devon Live. We are grateful for their support.”
