Exmouth artist Ray Balkwill is holding an exhibition in the town in December.

The exhibition called 'Spirit of Place’ is being held in the Studio Gallery, Thistledown, Marley Road, on Saturday, December 3 and 4 from 10am to 5pm. Open at other times by appointment.

Ray is a landscape artist capturing the view of the Exe Esturary at Exmouth. One of his favourite painting locations on the estuary is Camperdown Creek, or as he likes to call it 'Shelley Gut.'

By way of a small tribute Ray will also be displaying a number of replica model sailing boats made by his boat-builder friend Geoff Holman, who sadly died recently, at the exhibition in December. 

Those who are familiar with Ray’s work will know that it is his portrayal of the Exe Estuary, in all its moods, that has been his greatest passion. He has spent over four decades living and working in Exmouth and the sense of belonging grows ever stronger.
