Journeys - part of the Teignmouth Poetry Festival

‘Journeys’ – Saturday March 10th to Thursday 22nd

 An exhibition of new Art and Poetry to celebrate  Teignmouth Poetry Festival 2018

Local artists and poets have been collaborating for many months to produce a scintillating range of new work around the theme of ‘Journeys’. The exhibition – including 40 new artworks and over 50 new poems – is curated by poet and former art teacher Graham Burchell. 

Graham says, “It’s been fascinating to watch this body of work developing. Writers have taken inspiration direct from the artwork, while painters and sculptors have been influenced by the new writing which has emerged. The ‘Journeys’ theme has brought a dozen different interpretations: the places people have journeyed to, the roads they’ve taken, spiritual, seasonal and nature-based journeys by both night and day. There are political slants and even journeys into the cosmos.”

Graham is confident the visual art will have it’s own immediate impact on visitors. But as an extra treat for this year’s event, eight prominent poets from all over the UK have donated their own ‘Journey’ poems. He adds, “Taking time to read the poetry which accompanies it is certain to deepen the experience of a visit. When all this comes together in the gallery space, it will be our best exhibition yet!”

 ‘Journeys’, part of Teignmouth Poetry Festival Fringe, opens on Saturday 10th March. Entry is free, and the TAAG gallery is open from 10am – 5pm, seven days a week. Information about the opening night party will follow.

Full details of the Poetry Festival, which is supported by National Lottery funding through Arts Council England, are available via this link

Tickets for all Festival events are available from the Teignmouth Pavilions box office.

Earth Hour exhibition

Earth 1.jpg

An exhibition to celebrate Earth Hour


In response to Earth Hour 2018
at TAAG from Friday 23rd March to Thursday 29th March 2018

‘Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement uniting people to protect the planet and is organised by WWF engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues.  Earth Hour was famously started as a light-off event in Sydney Australia in 2007.  Since then it has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide, and the one-hour event continues to remain the key driver of the now larger movement.’(see

This year Earth Hour falls on Saturday 24th March and the theme in Teignmouth is ‘Bikes’. 

TAAG will be hosting an exhibition to which we invite contributions from artists.  The exhibition will run from the 23rd to Thursday 29th - the day before Good Friday.  Exhibits will be hung on Thursday 22nd March with the private view on Saturday 24th from 6pm.  This is followed at 7.30pm by a bring a dish supper and some storytelling ‘Tales from the Saddle’. There is no charge to artists to exhibit with just a 20% commission on sales to help cover costs. 

Artists are invited to take a broad approach to the subject matter.  The group organising the events have been using the strap line ‘pedal ‘n’ pulse’ which I pass on for your interest and inspiration.  So far a miniature skate park with ramps is being made by children as an interactive piece and several artists are looking at sculptures from bike parts.  From what we are hearing so far it seems likely that there will be more interactive/moving parts of the exhibition than usual but we need a richness of creative thought and we are excited and interested to hear any of your ideas.

Please send a description and a picture or drawing of your exhibit giving all relevant details to: and title your email Earth Hour 2018: Exhibit. We will need to have received details of your exhibit by 22nd February. 

I will pick up your emails off the TAAG computer. If you would like to contact me directly and get a faster reply to any queries you can do so at

Elaine Ford - Exhibition

"My current work is an amalgamation of drama, imagination, and memory.  The sea is my initial starting point and touch stone.  The interaction with materials is the way I engage myself with the unconscious/subconscious and actual sea and the concepts of sea.  This, I can feel free to use in whichever direction I choose.  The physical act of pouring and pushing paint around is an intrinsic part of my practice, whereby I lose myself in the materiality of the painting process.  I have a passion for colour and it’s emotive qualities within a painting.  I endeavour to create art that the viewer will respond to on a sub conscious level in a similar way that the power of music can influence and affect our souls.  .

An important value within my life has been 'the dramatic' and is a central thread in everything I become involved  with.  Subsequently, these qualities that I value, have been my guideline for the constituents of my art making within the last three years."

In addition to being an Artist, I have worked as an Equity Registered Stunt Co-ordinator and Performer in Films and Television for 25 years.  The adrenalin rush, energy, and drama is ever-present and feeds into my creative practice.

A Brush with Art
to Mar 10

A Brush with Art

The name John Skinner will be known by many in the Teignmouth area for his unique watercolour paintings as well as his outgoing nature.

Many will also know him as an excellent tutor who holds regular watercolour workshops passing on his skills to many willing students.

The main gallery at TAAG Arts & Community centre will next week be filled with many of the results of his teaching when many of his pupils display their work in an exhibition aptly titled “A Brush with Art”. They may be students but their art will be very worthwhile seeing, having had the stamp of approval from John.

As can be seen from the different styles of painting the members of the group are individuals in their own right, each of them deciding what subject they would like to paint.     The Group was formed some four years ago with many new members joining along the way and is for all abilities from beginners to experienced artists. 

This is the Group's second Exhibition at TAAG.

Inspired by Nature

An exhibition of paintings by Wendy Hayden-Sadler, Anne Baker & Tony Homer

Saturday 3rd March - Friday 8th March 2018 - 10am - 5 pm - Admission Free

poster 1.jpg


Returning to TAAG for their third annual art exhibition are popular local artists Wendy Hayden-Sadler and Anne Baker. This year they are joined by another well-known painter, Tony Homer.

Their exhibition, entitled "Inspired by Nature", will run from Saturday 3rd March to Friday 9th March and feature a fascinating new range of original paintings, giclee prints and greetings cards that always proved popular with visitors and local residents alike.

Whilst the three artists paint in notably contrasting genres, their works all show a great affinity to nature and a love of Teignmouth and the surrounding country side.

Wendy Hayden Sadler

Wendy is an impressionist landscape artist. She has been painting all her adult life, having exhibited in Hong Kong and Malta before returning to England twenty years ago.

Wendy is a very versatile artist working in a number of different mediums. She has also studied batik-making in Asia and miniature painting at West Dean College, Sussex.

Wendy is qualified to teach art at adult education centres and colleges and previously taught art as an occupational therapy. Her work, which is strongly influenced by the proximity of the moors and the sea, has been exhibited in many galleries and venues in Devon, including several occasions at TAAG.

Anne Baker

Art has held a lifelong interest to Anne. Since her return home to Devon 8 years ago, Anne has continued to broaden her artistic scope by joining Totnes and Teignmouth Art Societies. This has encouraged her to expand her love of nature by introducing the Devon sea and landscapes into her portfolio as well as the abundant bird and animal life.

Over the last five years, she has attended many courses and workshops in order to tighten up her natural flair. This has culminated in a number of successful local exhibitions. 

Tony Homer


A painter and printmaker based in Devon, Tony's work uses local landscapes, buildings and the sea. He uses these elements as a starting point for his paintings and prints.

He likes to use sketchbooks to collect information and drawing from observation is integral to his work. These studies help him with compositions, colour, form and pattern, which evolve through mark making with pencils, pens and brushes.

 Working outside is important to Tony as he gets his best ideas from things that happen around him. Landscape, rivers and architecture are his main concerns and these form an important part of the focus of his work.

 Back in the studio he will use these early studies to develop his ideas for paintings. Working on three or four ideas, paintings gradually come together and can often result in abstraction but the origins are all from the environment.

Amy Burton-Smith
Teignmouth-based Artist                      

Amy started her painting career by painting pet portraits and even though she now chooses to paint landscapes, she still spends a lot of time working on pet portrait commissions.

Mostly, she chooses to work in oil paints, however will rarely turn down the opportunity to explore new media. In this exhibition, she has extended herself into producing colouring books and even a one of a kind dress made from the printed artwork of fellow artist, Lisa Fletcher.

She works as an artist for Red Herring Games has recently completed artwork (pencil sketches, ink drawings and oil paintings) for their new murder mystery subscription package.

Paignton Artist

My Name is Lisa Fletcher. I reside in Paignton, Devon, and I have been drawing and painting since I could hold a brush.  It hasn’t been until recent years that I’ve started to sell my work or carry out commissions as opposed to simply enjoying the creative journey and gifting the work away to delighted recipients.

Although I like to dabble in most media, I’m happiest with both oil paints and acrylics. What I love about oils, is the wonderful gloss and richness of colours you get when you mix them together, plus the fact you can layer on top of old layers, meaning there is a greater depth enjoyed. Using acrylics, bring excitement to the mix as you have to blend quickly in order to beat the fast drying nature of the paint!  I also love the vibrancy this media brings, and never tire of it’s brightness.

The theme of the work displayed here, is mostly of a meadow nature, the chosen style is formed by using acrylic on canvas. I like to study skies and enjoy stretching the imagination to enhance a sunset. The brighter the better, and I like a stark contrast between land and sky.      

I am happy to discuss any commission requirements with you.

I hope you enjoy looking at the work, and thank you for your time.

Josie Gould, Ray Vyse, Patricia Ferns, Alison Jagger Cane, Petra Lewin, Elizabeth Rashley
Click animates to enlarge them..

Josie Gould

Josie is interested in the feeling of being in nature and paints en plain air on Dartmoor and the coast throughout the year. Immersing herself in the local wild places enables her to catch the fleeting sensory qualities of light and colour that most affect and move her.

Josie uses mixed media and whatever is at hand to evoke poetic memories of land and sea. In reclaiming a sensual, contemplative nature through awareness of the ebb and flow of the world, her aim is to invite others to reconnect with mystical experiences of peacefulness, well-being and the exuberance of natural vitality. 

Josie Gould, with collaborator Jane Ellis, is a finalist in the Devon Life, landscape artist of the year 2018 competition.

BA (Hons) Fine Art, PG Dip: Documentary Photography, MA Fine Art.

Ray Vyse

Ray Vyse - Anisotropic Art - In wood

My wall art, made from laminated wood, has been described by exhibition visitors as 'very original', 'unique' and 'extraordinary!' I enjoy exploring, revealing and exploiting the tactile and anisotropic nature of wood and in particular, laminated wood where the grain directions of laminates alternate. Some pieces are 3D constructions while others have relief patterns created by carving and shaping. When the anisotropic properties of the wood are too subtle, I add colour to create more striking directional effects. Recent work combines order and structure with the organic and disorderly.

Ray Vyse - Vysey - Digital Art

I have moved on from my love of photography, in recent years, to use computer graphics to create a variety of stylised images with clean crisp outlines and bold colours. I have also produced various purely abstract images, which I like to see printed up in glossy acrylic format.

Patricia Ferns

I love both bold, bright colours and subtle, gentle washes, depending on the mood and subject matter. I enjoy working on a large scale and exploring or experimenting with variety of medium (acrylic, watercolours, inks, pastels, oil and mixed media.) I am also a silk painter, which probably influences my love of colour and venture into other textiles.

I draw my inspiration from various sources – the body, landscape and nature. I try to convey the energy, texture, movement and effects of light in landscape and simplicity of line in other subjects.

Further enquiries: 07875 091368 or

Alison Jagger Cane

After running my own small business for a few years it is now a great joy to have
the chance to revisit my art/design and make practice. My previous work has been
underpinned by an interest in the mysteries of the brain - specifically consciousness, 
perception and thought.

The notion of merging science, technology and biology played a major role in the
conceptual outcome of my previous art imagery and installation work.This new body
of work is very different for me. It is an experiment in exploring my own consciousness
and validating the results through a series of abstract digital marks to initiate a design.

In art terms you would probably describe it as digital, abstract expressionism
based on personal exploration. The outcome surprisingly reflects a winter landscape
and has features that can be used in my design work.

From this starting point I hope to create a collection which will include wall art, 
sculptural pieces and perhaps some handmade useable items. 

This is new work in progress for me so watch this space!

Petra Lewin

I never cease to be amazed by the weird and wonderful interplay of light and colour. The different emotional experiences awakened by the melancholy of flickering shadows and joyous crescendo of bright and dazzling colours.  These are the touchstones that effect my painting and print work.  My initial inspiration may be triggered by a chance event – a thought or a memory.  The journey from thereon takes on a life of its own developing what lies beneath and beyond the initial inspiration. 

Further enquiries:         

Elizabeth Rashley

My name is Elizabeth Rashley and I'm a linocutter. I work from my studio in East Ogwell. I carve out my ideas on lino and print the blocks using a fabulous 1844 Victorian Albion Printing Press. I enjoy the discipline of constructing images within the confines of a rectangular block. I design both monochrome and colour prints. 

My linocuts incorporate bold shapes and flowing lines with a touch of humour.

I produce limited edition linocut prints, bunting and greetings cards. 

As well as being a member of Teign Artists, I am also a member of the Devon Guild Of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey. If you would like to contact me, you can email on

Ann Lunn

I started painting when I moved to Dawlish fifteen years ago. I began sketching our grandchildren then had a go at painting them and loved it!

Soon moved on to other subjects

Now I’m painting in various styles and mediums and the canvases are getting bigger and bigger!

Virginia Griem

I am a potter, a painter and a poet, holding City and Guilds in both drawing and landscape painting. I live in Kingsteignton, but am originally from Buckinghamshire.  My father was an architect and an accomplished artist so art is in my blood.  I have always loved making and painting and now that I have retired from the newspaper industry am enjoying the freedom and time to create.  I am secretary of the Newton Abbot Art Group, and actively involved in the Teignmouth Poetry Festival which takes place every year in March.

Liz Diamond

Jacqueline Thompson

I have lived in the South West since moving from Leicestershire, with my husband, in 2009. Until I retired, I worked for most of my life in the fashion industry, enjoying many years in fashion design and pattern technology.

My love for painting in all it's forms started when I was around 6 years old, only taking a back seat while I was bringing up my son and holding down a full-time job. I had wanted to go to art college after school, but my parents couldn't afford for me to attend, so I put that idea aside. 

Although I didn't paint often during those years, I still kept some form of painting in the background, for when I had a spare few hours. I now paint in most mediums, according to the most sympathetic approach for the subject in hand, and sometimes just because I find a certain medium exciting - such as Cold Wax Medium with oil pigment, or exploring acrylic abstracts.

My retirement has enabled me to give far more time to my art work, and living in Buckfastleigh exposed to the inspiring Devon countryside, moorlands, woodlands and coast, I feel I could paint forever and still not cover everything that delights me. Perhaps that is why my painting style tends more towards spontaneity, and capturing the emotional response to the subject.

I'm looking forward to the next 10 years, and seeing how my painting develops further, making up for all those years, when painting was literally just a dream.

An exhibition by Dorothy Dawson, Angela Holmes and Pam Brooker


Video for the exhibition

Who are these mysterious people called artists?  What are their origins?  Is ‘being an artist’ something you are born with, or can you deliberately work up to it?  How do you distinguish between an art and a craft?  How do you distinguish between copying, homage, derivation, inspiration and plagiarism?  How OK is it for an artist to alter their style?  Why do artists choose one medium over another?  Can somebody who only ever works in one style and one medium - the one-trick pony - truly call themselves an artist?

The artist’s journey’ looks at three artists who have made significant moves between styles and media, using both two dimensional art (paintings, drawings, prints) and three (sculpture, ceramics, models).

There will be a visitors book which we hope you will sign and where we would like you to leave a comment.  We do not want ‘great show’ or ‘lovely work’.  We want to know whether it has given you some insight into the above questions - what do you really think?
