Cllr Rachel Sutton explains
Rachel Sutton, 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 Migration theme of the 2019 competition will inspire art groups in Devon to once again produce stunning work and another memorable exhibition. Following six-year’s support by the Express & Echo, this year’s sponsorship is by their digital sister, Devon Live. We are grateful for their support.”
The Migration theme is the museum’s over-arching theme for 2019.
