A new exhibition on tour from the Hayward Gallery has opened at Honiton’s Thelma Hulbert Gallery.

The exhibition features artworks by the renowned artist Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, founder of the pop art movement in the UK.

More than 130 visitors turned up to see the exhibition and were entertained by the samba band from ROC Creative Honiton.

At the opening, the winner of the Visitors’ Choice Prize from the THG Open 2016 was also revealed.

Jane Perkins won the most votes and the prize of £150 for her artwork ‘King of the Beasts’ sponsored by Haughty Culture florists in Honiton.

The new exhibition runs until Saturday, October 8.

Running alongside this exhibition, in the gallery’s project space, is a display of artworks inspired by Paolozzi, created by adults attending ROC Creative.

ROC Creative is a Honiton-based developmental arts project supporting and involving people with learning disabilities.

Angela Blackwell, the gallery’s curator, said: “It is great to have an exhibition featuring the work of the pioneer of pop art of national importance here in Honiton.

“We have seven workshops with local schools booked in for this month too.”
