This year’s competition theme is Dartmoor, chosen to complement the main winter exhibition, Dartmoor: A Wild and Wondrous Region. The exhibition traces artists’ portrayal of Dartmoor, once described as a ‘dreary mountainous tract’ and later as the epitome of the picturesque.
The Local Art Show 2017 will run from December 13, to January 17, 2018.
RAMM’s exhibition co-ordinator, Carmen Marin, said “A massive thanks again to all groups for the effort, energy and inspiration put into this endeavour. This year’s entries have been of a very high standard. Congratulations to the shortlisted groups and good luck! Commiserations to those who didn’t make it: 21 Group of Artists, Alphington Art Group, Bovey Tracey Society of Artists and Kenn Art Group.”
