Call for WW1 deckchair artwork

Artists of all abilities are being invited by Fairlynch Museum to submit designs for deckchairs promoting its acclaimed World War One exhibition.

Journalist Kate Adie was impressed by the 2014 ‘Great War’ deckchairs when she spoke at Budleigh’s Literary Festival. For the exhibition’s second year, artwork is now being sought for a new set of ten chairs which will be placed outside the Museum and in various locations in the town. The ten best designs will be chosen for their manufacture.

In 2014, it was children from local schools who supplied the designs, as I wrote at  The deckchairs were so popular that it has been decided for this year to open the competition to artists of all ages. 

Images should relate to World War One and be portrait A3 size to fit the shape of the deckchair canvas.  Text and photographs can be included. The deadline is 7 March. For more details contact Martyn Brown on 01395 445171.

‘The Great War at Fairlynch’ 2015 exhibition at Budleigh Salterton’s very special museum! Reviews included: “Wonderful display on WW1, informative, bright and relevant. Well done!!
