To promote, celebrate and champion the visual arts in Devon
Welcome to DAN

Devon Artist Network (DAN) is a membership organisation set up to promote the visual arts and create opportunities for artists and makers in Devon.

DAN was established in 2004 and is a non-profit making organisation initiating a range of projects across the county including the well established Devon Open Studios (DOS) event that runs annually in September.

Featured Artist: Virginia Bridge
I work from my home studio in a converted barn in West Devon.  My images are drawn from an eclectic range of sources, including landscapes, townscapes and everyday objects.I love experimenting with different degrees of abstraction, so my work ranges from the completely abstract to almost representational.  I enjoy exploring the interplay of shapes, colours and textures as I work and rework images.My prints are mainly drypoint and collagraph and my paintings acrylic and mixed media.I graduated in 1981 from the University of East Anglia with a degree in Music and Fine Art.  I have spent most of my life working as a teacher, education advisor/consultant and headteacher, working in inner London.  Although this work offered me opportunities to teach children and adults printmaking and painting techniques, it left me with too little time to explore my own work.In the summer of 2012 I took early retirement from my job as a headteacher and relocated to West Devon.  I am now able to fulfil my lifetime ambition to be a full time printmaker and painter.
