This year’s exhibition ‘Connectivity’ – 1st July to 31st Oct 2022

Looking back, the 2021 exhibition, entitled ‘Regeneration’ reflected life beyond COVID19 and celebrated the start of planting in the Stone Lane Garden  ‘new arboretum’ area. It was a great success, attracting a wide range of submissions from emerging artists of all ages based in or connected to the South West, it was a fascinating show of original contemporary work.

The 2021 Ashburner prize winner was chosen by artist and Royal Academician Peter Randall-Page and Lara Goodman, contemporary art curator at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.

A number of past exhibitors and Stone Lane garden Friends also showed work by invitation in the summer tea room garden. The 2021 Sculpture Catalogue captures the event beautifully. Enjoy the artists’ work again here  2021 Catalogue
