Visit Exmouth: An Exmouth Festival Visual Arts Commission

Exmouth Festival is pleased to have commissioned an artist to reflect and respond upon the rich heritage of Exmouth’s rail tourism past. Following an application process, assessed by a panel of arts and railway experts we have appointed artist Janet Sainsbury to produce three new ‘Visit Exmouth’ railway posters.

Thanks to the kind support of Arts Council England, Exmouth Festival have commissioned an artist to create a series of new railway posters, celebrating Exmouth’s heritage as a tourist destination and building on the legacy of the classic ‘age of steam’ railways posters.

Working with artistic partners Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Daisi and Exmouth Library we have commissioned an artist to create new posters that are inspired on and reflect upon the classic source material.

If you are travelling by rail in May you may see the posters in their natural habitat as with thanks to support from First Great Western and the Avocet Line Rail Users Groups we have placed the new posters at railway stations across the South of England.
Please visit Exmouth Library from May 22nd – May 29th for an exhibition exploring and celebrating these fantastic posters!

With thanks to Arts Council England, First Great Western, The Avocet Line Rail Users Group, Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Daisi and Exmouth Library
