The Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton is currently showing ‘Drop Me A Line Part 2’.
The private view of Thelma Hulbert Gallery’s (THG) new exhibition, Drop Me A Line Part 2, saw visitors and community groups turn up in large numbers.
Visitors viewed work exhibited in a public art gallery alongside the work of artists Michael Fairfax and Louise Baker.
Some of the groups who responded to the exhibiting artists’ work included ROC Creative Honiton, Mill Water Community Special School pupils, young people from East Devon’s SWITCH group and Newholme Day Centre, Honiton.
The current exhibition features work from across the community including those with physical and learning disabilities.
