Topsham Art Group in their own words
Topsham Art Group (TAG) has around 150 members who meet once a month for lectures and demonstrations. A Summer Exhibition of the members’ work is held over two weeks in August which usually attracts in excess of 1000 visitors many of whom come from outside the local area.
This year’s theme is an excellent opportunity to explore the vast range of the RAMM’s collections and to represent them in novel and exciting ways. We also want to show their connection to the public, especially children. The extensive collections in RAMM reflect the development of human and animal evolution as well as the enormous diversity of human cultures and the beauty and richness of the natural world. With the increasing pressures of population expansion, climate change and political action, the RAMM’s collections provide an important reminder of what we humans are doing to our planet. If successful in this competition, TAG will try to convey some of this huge theme through a wide range of media.
We hope that this will encourage more local people to take up art as a relaxing and rewarding pastime and to come and visit our highly-acclaimed City Museum and to appreciate its contribution to public life in Exeter. www.topshamartgroup.co.uk
