Westward Ho! And Bideford Art Society 94th Annual Open Exhibition. This popular exhibition, now in its 94th year, is back for the Summer, showcasing over 300 works of art in both galleries. The society pays for the slot and has supported the gallery in many ways over the years through purchasing much needed lighting, cabinets etc. This show enables professional, non professional and aspiring artists to have work exhibited in the gallery in which it might not be possible otherwise. The Society is a great way for young artists to have access to professional development from established artists in exhibiting and hanging artwork.
