Event Details

Contemporary Passions 2022

An exhibition by members of South Hams Arts Forum (SHAF)

Tuesday 27th June – Sunday 10th July 2022

Since at least 2009, SHAF members have been holding the Contemporary Passions exhibition in Harbour House.  Each Summer, a number of SHAF artists collaborate on the theme of their new work, and their current passions.  It is always a pleasure to take part, and the resulting exhibition showcases a variety of media, in 2D and 3D. Such as painting, printmaking and ceramics, mosaics, plus occasional surprises, making an interesting and varied exhibition.  

This year SHAF Contemporary Passions has attracted artists and crafts people who are new to South Devon, bringing with them their established reputations. The exhibitors this year include both professional and semi-professional artists, several of whom also teach.
