Still haven't managed to completely tear myself away from Pinterest - so not much blogging this week. But on Wednesday I popped into TAAG in Teignmouth, where they are showing a number of artists as part of the Teign Artists' Six Days of Art.
This year the format has changed and artists are being shown at 3 venues across the Teign area over two long weekends. This is not very clear on the Teign Artists website but you still have this weekend to catch up with what's on show.
Patricia Bray, Josie Gould and Petra Lewin (who graduated together with Fine Arts degrees from Plymouth University in 2010) are featured at Teignmouth. In addition there is work by Jane Branch and Des Maxwell-Clark. When I called in at TAAG, Petra Lewin was on duty and it was great to have a chat with her. I've always been a fan of Petra's work (see previous post here) and at this show she has several large abstract canvases plus original monoprint & collagraph works.
These are just my personal preferences - there is plenty more to see, so take the opportunity to drop in at TAAG or at the other venues over the weekend, if you can.
As a postscript, on Friday I visited venue 3 at Devon Square in Newton Abbot. This has some terrific art by James Tatum and Karen Pearson, together with examples of other crafts. However the outstanding part for me was the collection of linocuts by Elizabeth Rashley.
It's worth going along to the Newton Abbot venue just to see this collection of work.
