The installation of a fascinating new exhibition by North Devon artist, Ed Crumpton has been taking place in the University’s Forum this week.

 

The exhibition is the result of Ed Crumpton’s artistic exploration of the Mariners Way, an ancient path crossing Dartmoor, which was historically used by Mariners walking between Dartmouth and Bideford.

 

Part of the exhibition features four tarred marlin rope hanging sculptures incorporating barrels and fishing buoys. To show them off to their best effect, they have been hung, high up inside the Forum windows, creating a stunning addition to the exhibition.

 

Visit the Mariners Way exhibition, featuring the barrel sculptures, paintings and prints from 27 April until 9 June, 8 am – 8pm in the University of Exeter Forum. Entry is free.
