Originally working towards a spring show, the artists found their plans thwarted this year. If restrictions are eased in December the group plans to bring the Drawn to Kingsbridge exhibition to Harbour House in a pre-Christmas and post-lockdown celebration of art and its power to lift our spirits.
“United by our passion for the beautiful, but sometimes forgotten part of Devon and Cornwall”, the exhibition will have a wide appeal to both local visitors and those from afar. Original works of art will be on display, with prints and greetings cards also available.
Drawn to the Valley was founded in 2003 as a support network for artists of the Tamar Valley to contribute to the local economy. From humble beginnings its artistic community has grown to exceed 160 members working in paint and printmaking, ceramics and sculpture, and calligraphy, jewellery and textile art. The artists in the gallery throughout the exhibition will be happy to explain more about the flourishing Drawn to the Valley group.
Due to the restrictions in November the opening date for the exhibition is not yet fixed. The Harbour House and Drawn to the Valley websites will display up to date information, and once open the show will run until Friday 18 December. Admission is free.
