The Power of Three Exhibition, Artizan Gallery, Torquay, Tues 1 – Tues 29 August
This August sees a brand new exhibition at Torquay’s Artizan Gallery: The Power of Three, a curation of paintings by three Teignbridge-based artists. Alan Gregory, Claire Jenkinson and Chris Pitman each deliver their take on the landscapes, making for a visual feast.
Broomhill National Sculpture Prize, Broomhill Sculpture Gardens, Nr Barnstaple
Go for a walk in the gardens here and you never know what you’re going to find next. This incredible-looking venue is now the location of this year’s National Sculpture Prize finalists. Broomhill Art Hotel, near Barnstaple features a sculpture garden and looks a pretty awesome place to go for tea, too. Loving the concept.
Unique Boutique Mid-Week Handmade Market, Exeter Guildhall, Wed 30 Aug
It’s well worth planning your shopping sesh in Exeter around these new fortnightly markets, that take place in and around St Pancras Church. Featuring handmade crafts from artists and makers in Devon and around the south west, I hear it’s a lovely vibe and a great way to snap up a quirky piece or two.
NT Live: Yerma, The Flavel, Dartmouth, Thurs 31 August
Another stonking production from the NT Live series. This time, Billie Piper returns in her Evening Standard and Olivier Best Actress Award-winning role, in Yerma. Piper plays a thirty-something woman in contemporary London, who’s so desperate to conceive that she’s led to the unthinkable in a shocking climax. Powerful stuff, the critics say.
