The Local Art Show gives art groups and societies from Exeter and the surrounding area the chance to display members’ work in this annual exhibition. Work is submitted according to the theme for the year, groups are then shortlisted and the winners chosen by public vote. The theme for the 2020 competition was ‘RAMM and its collections’ and the shortlisted entrants were Double Elephant Print Workshop, Topsham Art Group and Magic Carpet. The public vote, hosted by Exeter Living, closed in April and Double Elephant Print Workshop were announced as the winners.

Double Elephant is a fine art printmaking workshop that, for 22 years, has been providing resources, tuition and support to complete beginners and experienced artists alike. The ethos of DEPW is one of continuous creative learning and development, with a commitment to helping everyone reach the very highest standards. They usually operate from their Exeter base in the Phoenix Arts Centre, although during lockdown all the artists have been producing work at home. Double Elephant's artists work across the spectrum of printmaking methods, from relief printing to lithography and everything in between. The work they produce is often bold and dramatic, while also incorporating thoughtful detail. From butterflies to totem poles, RAMM`s collections have been a source of inspiration for this vibrant and varied show.

All work on display can be purchased via the shop at RAMM.
