We are exhibiting at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum Exeter RAM
Dartmoor-based photographer Susan Derges’ will be talking with our Contemporary Art Curator, Lara Goodband, about her recent rock pool series which features in our new Sea Garden Exhibition and Bryony Gillard will be discussing her work ‘Unctuous between fingers’, commissioned by RAMM, which explores our seaweed collection and its connections with contemporary ideas and conversations.
If you’re feeling creative on the evening, join artist Rachael Allain and see how she creates beautifully detailed images of local seaweeds using the historic camera-less contact process called cyanotype. Create your own blueprint artwork out of tiny off cuts from her prints to take home with you.
Try a little seaweed
And finally why not try a little seaweed? Keep your eyes out for our Sushi server during the evening. Shimizu Sushi, based on Well Street in Exeter, will be providing some tasty treats. Tony Coulson from Ebbtides will be offering the chance to try seaweed tasters and seasonal treats and hear about how they harvest local seaweeds around the coast of Devon from local tides.
Don’t forget you can also sit back and relax with friends over a drink or a bite to eat.
