Hilary Paynter : Age of Enlightenment
5 August - 15 Septemeber 2016
Devon Guild commissioned a new body of work on the subject of ageing from renowned wood engraver Hilary Paynter. Hilary's delicate, resonant and often humorous work was informed by dialogue with inter-generational groups. Talks and printmaking workshops enabled the public to engage with the theme and processes.
This project was part of The Baring Foundation's Late Style Artist's commission Series. The Baring Foundation has pioneered support for a wide range of arts programmes supporting older people to enjoy and take part in the arts.
