Exe Artists and Creatives Hub (EAACH) group statement
As our name suggests, we are a diverse group with members from across the whole spectrum of creative skills. Poets, painters, clowns, craftsmen and so much more. We have been drawn together by our enthusiasm for community art and have already collaborated in creating groundbreaking events such as the Art Park and the Exmouth Art Trail. We are relatively new but very active and inclusive, and keen to embrace new talents of all ages and abilities.
We have many excellent painters, photographers and other artists creating two dimensional work and are confident we can put on a very exciting show at RAMM. We all enjoy living in Devon and Dartmoor holds a special place in our hearts. The extraordinary wealth and diversity of landscape, geology, habitat, history, myth, magic and mystery, has something to inspire us all.
We would dearly love to be given the opportunity to display our work and receive some public recognition of our talents. This in turn would encourage more people to come forward and join in our projects. We believe art plays a vital role in enhancing community life and in enriching life for the individual.
