Fathoms Fragments Fieldwork

Mark Jessett, Robert Manners and Seamus Staunton

Three contemporary abstract artists exploring ideas through very individual approaches to making work.

Enjoy not knowing quite what you are looking at and allow their use of shape, colour, line and form to provoke thoughts and meanings. A show of vibrancy and depth.

Life Drawing Day

Life Drawing Day

A Life Drawing day session with professional models, male and female, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the Parish Hall.

All welcome, whether established artist or absolute beginner. We plan to do short poses in the morning and a series of longer ones in the afternoon.

You certainly don't have to be any good to get started as in our opinion drawing is far too important to be left to experts!

We do have spare easels, chairs and a limited number of tables for you to borrow should you wish - please call Georgie on 01647 440775 to discuss

Tea and coffee available - please bring your own lunch.

Outside the Box

Outside the Box

A live show about death! 

Liz Rothschild is a performer, celebrant and award winning burial ground owner. Her unique insight into the 'business of dying' has created a highly original and beautifully cathartic show, combining mercurial tales and miraculous truths, collected over the years from life’s ‘finishing line’.

Funny, wise and taboo busting; Outside The Box confronts the 'Elephant in the room' with grace and humour, asking its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!). 

Performance will take place in the Parish Hall.  A Bar will be available on the night.

Moor Otter Trail!       We will be hosting an Otter!

Moor Otter Trail! We will be hosting an Otter!

The coming summer season is going to see an interesting influx of guests to Dartmoor National Park and surrounding Gateway Towns.  100 Moor Otters which will be colourfully kitted out in all sorts of shades and mediums.  Before you start to think about being overrun by these little guys worry not, they are 3 foot tall sculptures and have been painted by artists from around the region and indeed around the country and WE ARE HOSTING ONE!

They will all contribute and give input to make a very interesting and interactive Otter Trail which will officially start on 1st June and run through to 15th September 2017. 

The objectives behind the project are twofold, firstly as a fundraiser for the DNP it will generate income which will enable specific identified conservation projects to be undertaken around the Park. Secondly, it will drive tourists, visitors and local residents around the route as they follow the Trail.

It is hoped that people will visit villages and towns that they would not as a rule have reason to drop in on.

Otter Trail booklets showing images of all the Otters will be produced and made available at host locations and tourist information points.  Anybody who finds and lists the unique reference codes of 20 Moor Otters, will be entered into a draw to win a range of spot prizes.  If visitors see an Otter that they really like, they can make an online bid for the Otter and if they are successful they will take ownership of it at the end of the event.

30 Golden Otters will be selected to go forward to a live auction at Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood, in Exeter on 30th September 2017.  The online auction will close the following week.

Forestry Ventures – a century of change in Fingle Woods

Forestry Ventures – a century of change in Fingle Woods

In 2016 the Woodland Trust and National Trust received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help restore the ancient woodland at Fingle.

As the work proceeds we are learning more and more about the historical significance of this important landscape.

This multi-media exhibition reflects some of the pioneering changes in woodland management enacted here over the last century. It tells the story of the people who worked and lived here and the way they won a living on the dramatic steep slopes of the Teign Valley on the northern edge of Dartmoor.

It will also showcase the achievements and challenges of the current restoration and how this too is literally unearthing history on our doorsteps.
