Idefords Arts

The Ideford artists are on the road again, this time the group will be in Topsham to show and share their art and inspire other artists to do the same.

Ideford Arts on the Road, which has chosen to travel Devon and show its work in non-traditional arts spaces and invites people to enter a more comfortable setting, will be at Matthews Hall, Topsham from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 19 and 20.

The group’s first exhibition took place at St Andrew’s Hall, Ashburton at the beginning of April. Further dates are lined up in July at St Mary’s Church, Ideford and then an exhibition in its base at Haldon Cottage in September, with two more dates still to be confirmed.

These exhibitions bring the artist together again with others joining from surrounding rural communities who share the group’s ethos of developing skills and inspiring others with their varied experiences.

The group is made up of a wide range of creative disciplines ranging from painters using acrylic, oils and watercolour, wildlife and landscape photographers, silk painters and glass workers, printers, spoon carvers and sculptors.

Images include botanical, ornithological and animal studies, seascapes, landscapes and transport; spoons which follow the natural lines of the wood from which they are caved; lampshades, cushions, wall art and bedspreads made from delicately painted silk; bowls, lamps and mirrors using stained and fused glass and jewellery made from Dichoric glass; photographs and handmade prints. The styles range from the figurative to abstract; some are self taught and others are fully trained artist, all are passionate about their craft and the wish to enthuse others.
