Michael Honnor printmaker exhibition title




Saturday 19 September - Sunday 1 November

Michael Honnor printmaker in studio A partially retrospective exhibition showing the breadth of Michael Honnor’s work across some 50 years of practice.

For Michael, painting comes first and growing up on the edge of Dartmoor has instilled in him an instinctive connection with the wilderness and wildness of Britain. It almost all begins out of doors; the rather solitary painter in rather solitary rough places, usually where the land meets the water, giving Michael a special quality of weather and light which he interprets into his work. Michael is exhibited widely, has work in many public collections and he has been exhibiting at the Thackeray Gallery, London for over 25 years.

For the same amount of time, Michael has been a Member of Devon Guild of Craftsmen as a printmaker.  He refers to printmaking as the partner to the painting; ‘They seem to need each other. I like the idea that more and more they may become differently the same’.  He was given his first litho stone forty five years ago and he has been addicted to lithographic alchemy ever since.

This exhibition is an opportunity to see Michael’s painting and printmaking alongside one another, to explore the synergy of the techniques and to see how one informs the other.

Free, open daily. 10am-5.30pm.

Meet the Maker, Saturday 19 September 10.30 -11.30am

Rosie Sanders, print shoal of fishes for Devon GuildSpecial cafe exhibition:

Fish, Blood and Bone 
17 July - 6 September

 

Guild members Rosie Sanders and Sue Deakin both use drawing and painting in the making of their prints. Whilst painting is sometimes regarded as a ‘higher’ art form and printmaking as a more ‘lowly’ craft, these Guild members see them as having equal standing.

Sue Deakin, leek drawing The craft of painting and the art of printmaking are as real to them as the other way around. This exhibition tries to show how one process can feed another.

Food is the subject matter of the show: Rosie’s - fish and Sue’s, vegetables.
Come for a taste!

In The Terrace cafe, open daily, 10am-5.30pm

helen Edwards, notebook detail
Sketchbooks provide a glimpse into the workings and inspirations of craftspeople, artists and designers. Sometimes rough or polished, playful or serious, often unseen; sketchbooks are a visual diary of a creative life – its risks, lessons, mistakes and dreams are all brought together alongside tea spills, bus tickets and shopping lists. Showing finished works as well as sketchbooks and maquettes from makers and artists, and complemented by interviews with exhibitors, this will be an illuminating exhibition for all ages which will encourage viewers to take time to contemplate the creative process.
Free, open daily. 10am-5.30pm
