Methods Making Madness - young SouthWest photographers - Fri 03 May 2019 -Fri 28 Jun 2019

Riverside Gallery, open daily. 10am-5.30pm. Free entry

This exhibition of images by young people across the South West, is also curated, devised and selected by young people.

Supported by Devon Guild, this exhibition from young aspiring photographers and digital artists showcases the finalists of a regional photography competition. It is curated, devised, selected and organised by three young people; Emily Cartwright, Sam Fabian-Miller, and Lauren Wiig-Aspland, and follows the theme of 'creation'.

The exhibition will include work by each young curator as well as the selected prizewiners who entered a 2018 competition, open to 14-21 year olds living in the South West.

Our curators asked entrants to capture the essence and process of creation; be it by a maker, artist, or an element of nature; the mess, the mistakes or the progression to perfection…. There were no guidelines, all they asked was that people opened their imagination and sent in some beautiful, thought-provoking and inspiring images. Visitors are invited to vote for their favourite images in order to select an overall winner.

The peoples’ favourite and runner up will be announced at The Summer Show opening on Friday 19 July.
The prizes include a solo exhibition space in the Devon Guild and a two-hour masterclass in portrait or travel photography with photojournalist Suzy Bennett.
