Oil paintings by Diana Booth, textiles by Jill Cooper and printmaking and handmade books by Caroline Barker
Meet the Artists: Sunday 23 July, 2 - 5 pm
Diana Booth, Caroline Barker and Jill Cooper have exhibited together as 3 Media Mix since 2011, bringing a delightful collection of paintings, textiles, printmaking and handmade books to Harbour House and other local venues. Pursuing individual creative paths, they continue to meet and to explore the local natural environments which create key themes in their exhibitions.
Recent developments include Jill’s use of vibrantly coloured fabrics in her work and an exploration of new textile techniques, while Diana is developing textural qualities in her oil painting and Caroline finds herself using linocut to tell a story.

Sea Sense celebrates our oceans and coastline, drawing attention to the way we treat the seas and highlighting the dangers of plastics.
The House Group consists of Alison and Ella Theaker and Rod Birtles. For this exhibition we have invited Emma Carter, The Island Artist, to take part. We have run workshops in three local primary schools, focusing on art and the environment, and the work created by the pupils is included in the show.
Here in south Devon the sea is a playground, holiday destination and escape from everyday life. More importantly, the planet is 70% water, and without the seas our lives on land would not be possible. Through photography, mixed media, collage, objets trouve, sculpture and print, Sea Sense also investigates how we treat the ocean that sustains us. A particular focus is plastic: we produce so much, only for it to end up in the sea and in the food chain. The exhibition includes sunsets and seascapes, but also art works made from plastic found on beaches. It seeks to explore how we risk destroying the very thing that makes our lives possible. There will be an opportunity to immerse yourself in the feeling of being by the sea through a video installation, and even a sandpit where children and adults can play on the beach!
Rod Birtles – The Raft of the Medusa, reimagined
Alison Theaker – Fruits de Mer (objets trouve, 18” high)

2017 promises to be a very special year for the SHAF Arts Trail in October as we have the largest ever number of artists participating this year. It will also be the first year that the trail runs over a two week period from October the 14th until the 29th.
Artists will be showcasing diverse disciplines such as painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography, textiles, jewellery, printing, wood turning and more. They will welcome visitors to their venues right across the South Hams region to enjoy work of a very high standard.
The SHAF brochure is getting a new look this year. It will list all the details of participating artists and venues, and will be available from September at many outlets across the South Hams.
