The art collective, CROW (Creative Older Women Artists) will be presenting their second annual exhibition in September at Maketank, Paris St, Exeter.
CROW began in January 2022 with a meeting of 17 artists at MAKETANK. The aim was to bring older women artists together fuelling mutual support, networking and skill sharing. Celebrating its second year of successful workshops and events, the group now has 89 professional, Devon-based older female artists.
Every month CROW has run workshops (abstract art, making books, life drawing, portraiture & many others) as well as presentations of work and visits. These have been achieved in a supportive and positive atmosphere delivered entirely by its own members creating a strong kinship and resilience.
The show, “Light”, shines a spotlight on the remarkable talent and Ingenuity of 26 older female artists: from painters, printmakers and sculptors to ceramicists and textile artists, their unique approach to contemporary art and unfaltering passion prove that age is no barrier to innovation and brilliance
