About the event

As we continue to try and secure a future for our work in Torbay, we're delighted, to announce the 2023 English Riviera Summer Open exhibition will be going ahead, and, for our fifth year operating from the Torquay high street, we’ll be welcoming hundreds of talented artists from across the county and beyond to come together in an eclectic display of the visual arts.

If you've experienced one of our open exhibitions before you know the drill, but for newcomers, our annual, seasonal opens are one of the most ambitious visual arts showcases in South Devon, as we turn the walls of our high street gallery into a tapestry of original art from creatives all over the country.

The exhibition is selective but open to all, and this year, we’re curating the collection on the following principles:

  • Diversity and Variety - taking a range of traditional and contemporary practice, selecting works that result in a showcase rich in media, subject and style;
  • Originality and Innovation - this isn't an exhibition that just "plays it safe", we love traditional work, but equally we want to share work with audiences that they may not find anywhere else;
  • Quality and Talent - we select the best to create a showcase for our audience where they can guarantee they'll be taking away collectible, original work that can't be found anywhere else.

Join us for the launch taking place on the evening of Friday 14thJuly, from 18:00-20:00, this is a chance to meet our exhibiting artists, enjoy a summery drink with us, and take advantage of exclusive evening discounts on all purchases.

This year, your support in joining us for the exhibition will be appreciated more than ever as we've had a rollercoaster over the last 9 months whilst we've fought to keep this showcase as part of the local arts calendar. So when you explore this year’s offerings from our talented artists, as well as having the option to take away a unique piece of art, we’ll be sharing ways that you can make sure Artizan’s programme is still here for many more seasons!

The exhibition runs from July 15th to August 27th, Wednesday – Sunday, 11am – 5pm (4pm Sundays) with additional events and special openings announced on our social media.
