Contemporary British Watercolours will be showing at Burton Art Gallery and Museum, Kinglsey Road, Bideford, Devon EX39 2QQ from March 24 - May 09 2016. This is the third and final venue of this touring exhibition.

Featuring a selection of watercolour works from 21 British artists, this exhibition demonstrates the 21st-century approach to what has long been heralded as a quintessentially British format.

Curated by acclaimed watercolour artist Simon Carter, the exhibition charts contemporary activity within this artistic method and represents a fascinating insight into how watercolour as a medium has evolved in the modern era, with excitement and experimentation key to current techniques.

Artists include; Susie Hamilton, James Faure Walker, Melanie Russell, Hannah Maybank, Steven Walker, Claudia Boese, Julie Umerle, Louise Cattrell and Julian Brown.
