South West Art Now

Location Chapel Gallery and Lower Gallery
From Saturday 24 February 2018 -  10:00am
To Sunday 13 May 2018 - 04:00pm

Opening Saturday 24 February 6-8pm


South West Art Now presents new works by 60 artists who live and work in the region and showcases a survey of the many artistic voices who are creating the culture which defines this particular geographic area.  These artists are working across a diverse spread of mediums, and deploying the skills of observation, imagination, interpretation and interrogating to tell the multiple stories which weave into a narrative of the region.   

Without the cultural contribution of the artists who live here, the South West would be a poorer pace.  Together, the artists presented in South West Art Now present a complex map of the geographical imagination of the region.  Their work is exploring, creating, transforming and critiquing the culture of this place, creating a richer region to live, work and visit, and this benefits everyone – from long term residents to day tripping visitors.
