2013 Art Market

On 13 July, 10am-3pm, in the Town Square in tandem with the Community Market.

Some of the local artists who will be selling their work include:

Izabela Gorska-Kwak: I am a Polish jewellery designer and I have moved with my family to England settling in beautiful Devon just a few years ago. Encouraged by my friends I decided to make handcrafted costume jewellery. Initially I was making jewellery for myself, but it quickly occurred to me that my necklaces, bracelets and earrings would be attractive to others. I use a large selection of natural semi-precious stones and glass. I spend a lot of time on designing new patterns to make my jewellery really unique and original which cannot be found anywhere else. Currently I am selling my jewellery in a few local galleries and shops, for details please visit my website isabelle-jewellery.co.uk

Isabel Merrick works in contemporary and abstract forms in painting, ceramics and functional pottery. The functional pottery designs have become mini landscapes of her surroundings and the local coastlines, which have been a great source of inspiration. www.isabelmerrick.co.uk

Helen Platten: I paint in acrylic and watercolour as well as mixed media. I make earrings and greetings cards and my work is vivid and expressive, passionate and fun. My website is www.dreamycloud.artweb.com and my facebook page is www.facebook.com/dreamycloudart

Tim Salter’s work is mainly abstract painting and printmaking focusing on decay and texture using natural and man-made forms. www.artsel.co.uk

Alison Savic: As a print-maker living in Exeter, I feel fortunate to be surrounded by stunning scenery and interesting places. I make linocuts, collagraphs and etchings, often depicting local scenes and local architecture. My husband is Serbian and we visit Serbia quite often. I have made several prints from sketches and photos I have taken in former Yugoslavia. I did a Fine Art Degree in Cardiff and after a career in music teaching and graphics, I have had the opportunity to concentrate on printing as a member of the Double Elephant Print Workshop at the Exeter Phoenix. www.etsy.com/shop/AliSavicPRINTS
