Catch the North Devon Open Art Show from January 19 to March 2 at the museum and theatre.

NINE local artists are showcasing work at the North Devon Open Art Show in Barnstaple.

The free exhibition at Barnstaple Museum and the Gallery Café in the Queen’s Theatre is now open and runs until March 2.

The professional and amateur artists have all been inspired by their North Devon surroundings and the show includes the use of oil painting, mixed media and installations including ceramics and lamp work.

One such artist is potter Roger Cockram. He has worked in North Devon for years and has developed his own highly individual approach to ceramics, along the way gaining an international reputation.

“The 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,” said Julian Vayne, education and outreach officer at the museum.

The museum, admission free, is open from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday. The museum cafe is also open throughout winter. The Gallery Cafe is also free to get in, but opening times may vary.
