  • Another Sidmouth

    Our Sidmouth is not the only Sidmouth. There is another Sidmouth in Tasmania, Australia. This other Sidmouth is rather smaller than ours; just a truck stop and not much else.

  • Trees In Art

    Sidmouth has an amazing treescape and the UK's only Civic Arboretum. Trees are a symbol of life. Like landscapes they provide an opportunity in art not only to observe, but also to imagine. Here a "palette of artists" share perspectives whether spiritual, environmental or emotional through colour, technique and tone. Their personal interpretations of the flora and fauna around us are captured in a variety of styles; observational, mythical, abstract and surreal.
