Call for entries: 2017 Local Art Show
11 January 2017
Art groups and societies from Exeter and the surrounding area are invited to submit their entries for the Express & Echo 2017 Local Art Show. The exhibition will have a Dartmoor theme and the winning group will display their work in RAMM’s Gallery 22 from 13 December 2017 to 17 January 2018.
Cllr Rosie Denham explains
Rosie Denham, Exeter’s Lead Councillor for Economy and Culture, explains “With the annual Local Art Show we aim to recognise, reward and foster creativity in the city. We hope that the Dartmoor theme of the 2017 competition will also foster the close relationship between the city and the moor for the benefit of Devonians and visitors alike. We are grateful to the Express and Echo for their continued support”.
The Dartmoor theme will complement RAMM’s main winter exhibition, Dartmoor: A Wild and Wondrous Region, an exhibition examining artists’ portrayal of Dartmoor and the development of tourism in the 19th century.
All entries must be submitted by 5pm on Friday 8 September 2017. Shortlisted entrants will be featured in the Express and Echo in September and October when readers will vote for their favourite.
The winning group will be announced on Thursday 26 October.

Entering groups will need approximately 50 works to fill Gallery 22.
