Exmouth Art Trail is offering free exhibit space to anyone wishing to display their work to the public.

Artists, crafters, poets, knitters and photographers will display their work on an interactive trail, from May 27 until June 5, as part of the Exmouth Festival.

Streets including Rolle Road, Bicton Street, Raleigh Road, Louisa Place and Carlton Hill will become a walk-around art gallery.

Blackmore Theatre manager Ian Whilden is keen to promote Exmouth artists, and the Bicton Street theatre will become a pop-up art gallery for the event.

Art trail organiser Anna Fitzgerald, of Sea Dog Art gallery, in Gussiford Lane, said all were invited to exhibit in the theatre for free.

Simply turn up at the theatre on Wednesday, May 25, or Thursday, May 26, between 4.30pm and 7.30pm, and set up your art work.

“There are plenty of walls but also tables can be arranged, so the more the merrier,” said Anna, who is also offering space at her gallery during the event.

Arty, or not, all can still take part in the art trail; decorate your garden gate, attach some poetry to a lamppost, or display your favourite painting or object in your window.

Anna is also appealing for volunteers to help make hundreds of pompoms for a street yarn bomb flower feature.

Crochet squares are also needed to turn a VW Campervan into an art trail exhibit.

The deadline for pompoms and crochet squares is Friday, May 20.

To help, or if you have artwork for the trail, email exmoutharttrail@gmail.com or call 07891 822350.
