As part of our programme of summer exhibitions in the Beachcomber on Teignmouth seafront, I have curated this show which features art students and artists new to TAAG, or artists practising less common forms of art. The exhibition runs from September 11th to 24th and is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
After the TAAG building purchase was completed in October 2020, much of the building was stripped internally and asbestos removed. Gallery 1 has been recreated and a fundraiser exhibition organised to raise more funds for the remaining work to allow us to reopen the ground floor in the first quarter of 2021. The exhibition raised £5k before we went back into lockdown.
The building purchase was finally completed on October 20th. In total, we raised £150k to buy TAAG and carry out essential ground floor works. We are now carrying out work required to prepare the building for users, and to assess the work needed for redevelopment of the upper floors. Full reopening of the ground floor is planned for early summer 2021.
