United by our passion for the beautiful, but sometimes forgotten part of Devon and Cornwall

Drawn to the Valley was formed by artists themselves over 13 years ago, mainly as a support network, but also in order to promote the Tamar Valley area, bring the area of natural beauty to life through art.

Members are the heart of the Valley

If you are living and/or working in the Tamar Valley region, we would like to invite you to our artistic community.

Drawn to the Valley

Daphne Leeworthy, is another of our artists exhibiting in the Spring Exhibition. In her words:-

"The last 2 years have given me the opportunity to spend more time with my lovely pastels and learning more of the many varied and fascinating ideas that other pastel artists have developed by watching other pastel artists worldwide and their workshops online."
The Exhibition opens on Saturday 28th of May, 2022.

Drawn to the Valley

Our featured artist today is Mary Toon, felting and paper mache work. Mary explains how she came to work on these figures.
"During Covid I’ve worked on up to six figures relating to the pandemic -, three of which I have submitted for the Spring exhibition. They are King Covid, Covid Corvid, Trust me I’m a Doctor , Corona the Flour Fairy and a couple on Climate Change, Syreni the Mermaid and Exhausted Earth.
I‘ve also done one called The Valley Awakens.
These are papier mache figures made from recycled materials, milk bottles , newspaper, flour and water, but painted with acrylics.
I still teach and practise feltmaking and enjoy doing commissions from my studio in the Plot at 80-84 Union Street. But the figures have popped up from nowhere each with their individual character. I've done eleven in all and sold seven and feel there are plenty more to emerge yet.
