DO you have a painting by one of these local art teachers: Joseph Kennedy, Allan Smith, Brian Chugg or Ken Doughty? If so, would you be willing to loan it the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon for a special exhibition?
The museum will be exhibiting the Barnstaple Masters, paintings by Barnstaple art teachers who taught at various venues across the town, notably the School of Art in Barnstaple's High Street when it was linked to the Scientific and Literary Institute and the Grammar School, now Park Community School.
While teaching, these artists influenced local art education, inspiring and encouraging the artistic ability of many promising students.
The Barnstaple Masters art exhibition runs from Saturday, October 19 to Saturday, November 16. If you can contribute an artwork to the exhibition contact Alison Mills or Melanie Terrell at the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon. E-mail email@example.com or phone 01271 346747.
