Salcombe Town Regatta is an action packed week and the first Salcombe Contemporary Art Fair will add even more vibrancy.
The exhibition features nineteen South Devon based artists with work ranging from abstract to urban, pastoral to industrial, all with a contemporary edge.
The event has been organised by Jon Woolfenden and Ian Carr, Jon has the Hope Cove Gallery in Island Street, Salcombe, and was once visited by the Duchess of Cornwall. His large impasto paintings of oil barrels, chains and trucks are sought after worldwide. Ian, whose Sailmaker Studio is also in Salcombe, was the organiser of the immensely popular Bunker Project, his non - figurative paintings celebrate colour and texture.
Exhibitors are Greg Ramsden, Steve Lean, Sara Downham Lotto, Frances Gynn, Mick Cartwright, Shirley Kircaldy, Gina Parr, Simon Dobbs, Rachael Bennett, Karen Pearson, Diana Booth, Joe Robinson, TRXTRA, Jon Horrell, Lorna Yabsley, Edward Netley, Bob Dawson, Jon Woolfenden and Ian Carr.
The majority of the senses will be catered for, as in addition to the visual delights there will be music from the Adam Green Trio, food by the Galley Girls and a bar.
The event is at Cliff House overlooking the beautiful Salcombe Estuary on August 4th and 5th from 10am until 9pm and admission is free.
