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
