26 JULY – 20 AUGUST 2021 HONITON HOT PENNIES EXHIBITION
We are working with the organisers of Honiton Hot Pennies to put together an exhibition about the history of this interesting ancient tradition. The exhibition will coincide with the 800th anniversary of Honiton being granted a charter to hold a fair in the town and will include a wide selection of photographs, information and articles across the years.
7 SEPTEMBER – 5 OCTOBER 2021 ROC CREATIVE HONITON EXHIBITION
ROC Creative Honiton is an adaptive arts project enabling and encouraging participation in the arts for adults with learning disabilities. Having recently reopened after the difficulties of the pandemic, we felt now would be the perfect time to reach out to our local community and give something positive back, by putting together this exhibition.
THE BEEHIVE GALLERY
We aim to have a continuing programme of art and photographic exhibitions displayed in the spacious Beehive gallery area which leads towards the auditorium. It is the intention of The Beehive to champion the work of high-quality semi-professional and professional visual artwork from within and beyond the town of Honiton. The exhibition space also provides the local amateur visual arts community with an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work in a vibrant art centre setting at a low cost to community groups and charitable organisations.
