The fifth annual exhibition by 12 East Devon artists is currently on at Sidmouth’s Kennaway House.

It includes work by three Exmouth artists.

Artbeat 2017 ‘promises to be an exciting and varied show’, say the organisers. “Inspired by local surroundings, each artist has a unique way of interpreting the beautiful Devon landscape, the dramatic coastline, beach scenes and street life.”

The exhibition includes work by Exmouth artist Zan Nye: “The sea plays a major part in my inspiration and I’m lucky enough to live five minutes from the beach.” Zan enjoys painting in acrylics, experimenting with mixed media and using bright colours.

Another Exmouth artist displaying her work is Jan Shayler. Her work covers a variety of subjects, including lively watercolours of animals, some exciting figures and seascapes.

The exhibition is open daily, up to September 24, 10am-5.30pm. Free admission. Original paintings, prints, cards, textiles and gifts will be on sale.
