Groups are invited to prepare works inspired by RAMM and its collections for the 2020 Local Art Show.

In its eighth year, the annual Local Art Show gives art groups and societies from Exeter and the surrounding area the chance to display members’ work in an exhibition at RAMM. Partnered by Exeter Living, the 2020 show will be in gallery 22 from 23 May to 17 June.

Rachel Sutton, Exeter’s Deputy Leader and Lead Councillor for Climate & Culture, explains “With the annual Local Art Show we aim to recognise, reward and foster creativity, and I am always impressed by the variety and quality of local art. This year, the artworks must be inspired by RAMM and its collections, so there is broad scope for the imagination. We are very grateful to Exeter Living for supporting the 2020 competition and I look forward to another stunning show.”
