Artists Exhibitions 2013
We are really excited to be running our first series of art exhibitions for which we have hand-picked some very talented local artists. The first two exhibitions with artists Favell Bevan-Arti and Marion Sawl were very well received. Mandy Amos is exhibiting from Sunday 2nd June to 29th June and will have a range of framed originals, digital image copies, keyrings, fridge magnets and coasters on display. Feel free to come along to view the work at any time between 10am and 7pm during these dates, however we suggest you call the hotel in advance to check the best times for viewing.
A little bit about Mandy in her own words.....
“In 2009, after suffering life changing surgery which then prevented me from returning to my 20 year career as a Hairdresser; I decided to fulfill my childhood dream of studying art. So I enrolled on the 'Portfolio' art course at the South Devon College and from there things have taken off; having just graduated from the Foundations Arts degree. I was fortunate to be able to display my work at this year's 'New Designers' Exhibition in London, at which I had one of the highest accolades; in being one of only a few chosen from over 2000 exhibitors to be invited back next year to the prestigious 'New Designers One Year On' event.
My work is mainly created using Mono type and Lino cut printing and recently I have experimented with multi layered Lino prints, however I also enjoy working with different media to create collages.
I often work from literary sources; including fiction, non-fiction and poetry, my recent work was inspired by the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop.”
