To support the restoration and digitisation of major exhibition ‘An English Eye’ by renowned artist-photographer James Ravilious

We’re raising money to help support the repairs and maintenance of major exhibition ‘An English Eye’ by renowned local artist-photographer James Ravilious. Not only is the collection an important historic record of life in North Devon between 1972 and 1997 but the exhibition as a whole represents the best of James Ravilious’ work.

Your donation today will support us in the repairs and maintenance of 103 pictures that make up the An English Eye exhibition. Donations will also support the safe guarding and display of a significant piece of history and will also fund a bespoke education programme, outreach and digitisation of the works enabling more people to see and enjoy this significant collection.
