Artwork created by local community groups features in a new exhibition - Soil Culture: Casting Seeds - at Honiton’s Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG).
Artists from all across the South West, including Tony Johns, Jenny Mellings, Nicky Thompson, Peter Ward and Emma Wilson, led workshops both at the gallery and externally through the outreach programme.
They worked with families, schools and community groups including hard to reach groups.
The artworks created by the community are featured along with examples of the artist’s work who led their activity.
One of the local groups is Mind in Exeter and East Devon, based at the Haven, in Honiton.

The group worked with artist Jenny Mellings at its monthly Art and Mind session at THG.
Jenny said: “I worked with two different groups trying out some earth pigments such as finely ground red sandstone from Sidmouth. The participants from Art and Mind drew each other’s silhouettes with the earth pigments.”

Seeing their artwork in the exhibition for the first time, a participant from Art and Mind said: “We were really impressed by how our artwork looked up in the gallery.
“The workshop was fantastic, we were intrigued by how you can get pigments from rock dust and produce artwork from it.”
Other groups featured include Honiton Community College, Invigorwrite, Mill Water School, the Cranbrook community and St Martin’s Primary School, based in Cranbrook.
The exhibition runs until Saturday, May 21, and admission is free.
