Jurassic Coast Art Exhibition

Colin Bentley in the studioThe first in a series of exhibitions showcasing the work of East Devon-based fine artist Colin Bentley. Colin is working on a three-year artistic collaboration with the Jurassic Coast Trust, alongside the Trust’s volunteer Ambassadors, Business Partners, local museums, schools and community groups.

Colin’s work draws on all these influences to depict the Jurassic Coast in all its rugged beauty. This first exhibition at Sidmouth’s Kennaway House will present paintings from the Triassic section of the World Heritage Site, ranging from Orcombe Point in Exmouth to Seaton.

Much of the artwork in the exhibition will be available for sale, with part proceeds going to the Jurassic Coast Trust to help look after our World Heritage Site.

In the lead-up to the exhibition, you can follow Colin’s blog about his experiences on the coast. Visit Colin’s website for more examples of his work.
