Artists & The Community
Artsreach runs a variety of innovative participatory projects across the County, working with a diverse range of communities and across art forms.
 
Outline South West Part 2 (2015)
Devon Guild Member and printmaker Anita Reynolds walked the 630 mile South West Coast Path from Minehead to Poole throughout 2012, 13 and 14, producing drypoint plates each day. This exhibition will feature the final thirty prints from the south coast, plus some larger works created throughout the project, alongside sketchbooks, photographs, maps and educational material.

The journey along the southern stretch of the coast path also gave Anita the opportunity to collaborate with other South West based artists Philippa Burlet (ceramicist), Carol Timms (feltmaker), Caroline Parrott (aluminium artist & jewellery maker) and Richard Povall (sound artist), who have each created their own responses to the landscape as part of the project 'Postcards from the Path.
