For one week in May, visitors can discover paintings, prints, sculptures, installations and experiences in galleries, artists’ studios and unusual spaces across the city. Affordable and competitively-priced work will be available to buy, and there will be a programme of talks, workshops, screenings and performances to accompany the exhibitions.
This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to find something they wouldn’t normally look at: art that will surprise, entertain, challenge — or just look great on the wall!
Exeter’s Culture Director, Martin Thomas, says:
“AWE is a brilliant opportunity for residents and visitors to immerse themselves in culture. Dozens of artists and venues have come together to get Exeter buzzing with creativity. Get involved and enjoy great art in a beautiful city.”
Event sponsor Deborah Clark, of Southernhay House Hotel, says:
“This is a meaningful development for the arts scene in Exeter. It’s accessible but also avant garde. It’s an opportunity to step outside your normal view. I can’t wait to see the result of this project and how we all respond.”
Artist Peter Randall-Page says:
“The south west peninsula has a long and distinguished history in the visual arts and continues to be both home and source of inspiration to creative people of many disciplines. AWE will bring much of this creativity together – I am looking forward to it.”
