About The Show

The Doddiscombsleigh Art Show brings together a selection of the finest Artists in the South West for an Exhibition and sale of their works.

Every penny raised goes to Doddiscombsleigh Primary School which enables them to continue to provide the very best holistic education for all the children, including many extra curricular activities.

Please browse the artist pages for a taste of the work by the artists exhibiting this year.

These kind of initiatives should be widely encouraged!”

The event is organised and run by The Friends of Doddiscombsleigh School. The show involves the entire school community, teachers, pupils, parents, alumni and other local supporters. Everyone gives their time voluntarily The proceeds of the Art Show from previous years have been used to build an outdoor classroom, trim trail, amphitheatre, as well as supporting extracurricular activities such as sports and theatre trips.
