Summer Exhibition 2023

The Dartmoor Collective is returning to the spectacular Poltimore House, Exeter, for our second major summer exhibition, featuring an eclectic range of work by 23 contemporary artists, photographers and printmakers all taking their inspiration from the Dartmoor landscape.

Opening times and location

The exhibition is open Friday 25th to Sunday 27th August, 10am-4pm.

Poltimore House is a spectacular Grade II* listed house with a fascinating history, set in 13 acres of grounds on the northern edge of Exeter. The postcode is EX4 0AU. There is plenty of car parking. There is a café serving drinks, delicious homemade cakes and light meals, open Sat-Sun 10.30am-3.30pm.

Entrance to the exhibition and the grounds is free. Donations to the Dartmoor Collective to support our work in promoting and supporting local artists, or to Poltimore House Trust which go towards the renovation of the house, are entirely voluntary but much appreciated.

Meet the artists

On the Saturday and Sunday we will be hosting two ‘Meet the Artist’ events, each featuring 3-4 artists from the exhibition. They will present their work, talk about their inspirations and methods, and answer your questions.

These will be free to attend but numbers are very limited so you will need to reserve your place. To make sure you receive details of how to book as soon as they are confirmed, please sign up to our email list.
