9 Ways of Seeing

  • TAAG Arts and Community Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

9 ways of seeing is a unique mix of different photographic styles, subjects and messages.

The nine different photographers are all part of the Exeter Camera Club which recently celebrated 125 years as a centre of photographic and creative excellence.

Landscape? Of course. Street and real people? You betcha. Wildlife and nature? Naturally.

Mixed in with a creative swirl of abstract, conceptual and visual art, you won’t regret coming in.

Community and Voluntary Groups Exhibition

  • TAAG Arts and Community Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Each year TAAG offers local community and voluntary groups space to exhibit details about their organisation free of charge.

Come in to TAAG and see the amazing number of groups who are showing what they do for the town and surrounding area.

Many of them are always on the lookout for new members or volunteers - maybe one is righty for you.

Open daily between 10am and 5pm.

You are invited to take part in the 2018 Community and voluntary groups exhibition from Jan 6th - 19th 2018.

Do you want to hold a FREE event?

In addition we can offer, on a first come first served basis, the opportunity to book a free event in the gallery space for your organization to offer teas and coffees etc. as a promotional/fundraising event. If you want to take advantage of this you can check by emailing us at.  

Info@teignmoutharts.org

This exhibition has proved successful as

a recruitment / publicity event for organisations in the past so TAAG has decided to repeat the free exhibition. Setting up is on Friday 5th January after 5.30pm ready to open at 10am on Saturday 7th.

It is a good opportunity to have a stand/display area showing your work and future activities and for people to leave their contact details. Nearly 40 organisations took advantage last year and we hope to increase the number this coming January.
 
Each organisation has about a metre of wall space in one of our Galleries for a board display and room for a table for leaflets etc. in front. A pull up banner is also suitable. Because this is a rent free activity we will require you to provide a couple days voluntary stewarding of the exhibition.

If you are interested in joining us and/or holding an event please email info@teignmoutharts.org or drop into the TAAG Arts and Community Centre in the
Old Swansons Garage

The Artist's Journey

An exhibition by Dorothy Dawson, Angela Holmes and Pam Brooker

THE ARTIST’S JOURNEY

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?
