Bobinska Brownlee is delighted to present works by eight artists who took part in the North Devon Artist Residency in Combe Martin, 2018-2020
Please note that we are open by appointment only through August and early September


BBNR gallery is delighted to present works from the North Devon Artist Residency.

The residency was founded by Monika Bobinska and Barbara Brownlee in 2018, with the aim of creating a body of contemporary art works inspired by and responding to the north Devon village of Combe Martin and its environs.

Participating artists have spent a month in our Combe Martin cottage, and have included Phil Ashcroft, Chowwai Cheung, Jake Clark, Joe Johnson, Nicholas Hughes, Yoon Jung Kim, Jola Kudela and Mary Yacoob.

Artists have travelled from the UK, USA and Korea, and their encounter with north Devon has spanned photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, music video, sound and film.

Their subject matter has featured the stunning landscapes and seascapes of the region, as well as the idiosyncrasies of the village, the iconography of British tourism and a project which took place in the depths of a local silver mine.

Residency artists have been challenged to live alone in an unfamiliar village, often in the coldest months of a north Devon winter. They have risen to that challenge and have created work that is refreshing, exciting and often humorous.

The residency has been temporarily interrupted by covid, but we plan to restart as soon as we can, with Jesper Blader (Sweden), Edmund Eva (Germany) and Rhiannon Inman-Simpson (Norway).
