Art exhibition inspired by 60 years of Exmoor National Park

Mark O'Brien - PaintingMore than 30 artists have contributed works to an exhibition of art inspired by the 60th anniversary of Exmoor National Park.

The exhibition, at the Loughrigg Gallery in South Molton, is the brainchild of owner Michael O’Brien who says: “The gallery often features images of Exmoor in one form or another amongst the other works so I thought in this special year it would be an opportunity to invite local artists to contribute something featuring the National Park’s fantastic landscape.

“I’m pleased to say that there has been an enthusiastic response and we have some wonderful pieces on display including sculptures, oil, water colours, pastels, and photography.”

The exhibition runs from 1 – 31 July, entry is free and all the artwork will be for sale – 5% of the proceeds will be donated to CareMoor for Exmoor, the Exmoor National Park environment support fund.

Commenting on the initiative Andrea Davis, Chairman of Exmoor National Park, said: ”We are very grateful to Mike for setting up the exhibition which will showcase our wonderful area and I am looking forward to having a look around it myself.”

The Loughrigg Gallery from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.
