Local Art Show: Double Elephant Print Workshop returns

The Local Art Show 2020 was impacted by the closure of RAMM due to Covid-19, so the 2020 show has been rescheduled for 2021.

Art groups and societies from Exeter and the surrounding area submitted work according to the theme for 2020, ‘RAMM and its collections’. Groups were shortlisted and the winners chosen by public vote, hosted by Exeter Living. Shortlisted entrants were Double Elephant Print Workshop, Topsham Art Group and Magic Carpet. Double Elephant Print Workshop were announced as the winners.

Double Elephant is a fine art printmaking workshop that, for 22 years, has been providing resources, tuition and support to complete beginners and experienced artists alike. They usually operate from their Exeter base in the Phoenix Arts Centre, although during lockdown all the artists have been producing work at home.

Double Elephant’s artists work across the spectrum of printmaking methods, from relief printing to lithography and everything in between. The work they produce is often bold and dramatic, while also incorporating thoughtful detail. From butterflies to totem poles, RAMM’s collections have been a source of inspiration for this vibrant and varied show.

See the work on display in Gallery 20 from Tuesday 30 November 2021 to Sunday 30 January 2022.

All work on display can be purchased via the Shop at RAMM.
