Having taken a year to rest after the first three (’16-’18), we were intending to have an event this year. However, our intention to be running a joined-up event still needs more work to be all that it should be. Sorry for all of you who were preparing for participating in a big event, it’s not going to happen in 2020.
However, for artists and supporters, we will still be running some events this year that you can be a part of in the way that works best for you:

Exeter-centric Exhibition

Thursday 21st – Thursday 28th May
Visual, audio, psychogeographic and sensory responses to the city. Call-out forthcoming.

Buy Art Now!

Friday 14th , Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th August
We will be producing a pop-up exhibition of work, curated from submissions, and holding another Art Car Boot. We’ll also be printing a paper about local art and artists and intend to include a studios trail, it’ll cost participants = the amount to print and distribute divided by the number of artists who want to feature… Join us and make the sums!
Details to follow.

Christmas Show

Friday 11th – Thursday 24th December
Curated from submissions, this will be a festive snapshop of work by local and regional artists, from affordable to wildest dream gifts. We’re aiming to create the perfect present-buying destination for culture lovers’ lovers…
