Call for Local Artists to Showcase their Work

From film and photography to ceramics and silverwork, the hunt is on for the area’s finest artists to feature in the 13th North Devon Open Art Show.

The show, run by the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon, is open to amateur and professional artists working in all types of media. The chosen artists will have their work displayed as part of the popular art exhibition, running at the museum throughout January and February 2015.

Contributors should either be local residents, or the work should be created or inspired by northern Devon, Exmoor and Lundy Island.

Executive Member for Culture, Councillor Derrick Spear, says: “The North Devon Open Art Show is a fantastic opportunity to discover the creative genius of our region and features both professional and new artists working with a wide variety of media.”

Julian Vayne, Education and Outreach officer at the museum, says: “We are looking for a body of work rather than just a single piece, unless it’s an installation or large sculpture. This can be in any media including crafts, jewellery, digital art, sound, internet and networks, film and photography. The more variety the better! It’s a great opportunity for up and coming artists to showcase their work.”

Closing date for entries is Saturday 6 December 2014.  The chosen artists will be selected by a panel of judges made up of representatives from the museum, Petroc’s School of Art and North Devon Arts.
