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: Sara Evans
Sara Evans explores elements of colour, energy and essence in variety of media. Vibrant colours reflect her upbringing in South Africa where she achieved a Fine Art Honours degree in Ceramics. In making art, Sara finds inspiration in organic shapes and rhythms found in nature often contrasted with geometric forms. Frequently, she focuses in on details, abstracting them down to their essence, seeking a bold and confident mark. Sara takes pleasure in seeking out the unpredictable that creative moment before her brain gets there; before building on that discovery. Spontaneity and simplicity impart a direct energy she admires. Once an idea is emerging, Sara enjoys experimenting and allowing the process of making to show in her ceramics, painting, printmaking and textile-art. Since completing her Art and Design teacher training in 2008, Sara works with a wide variety of students teaching ceramics and art. She is based Hannahs at Seale Hayne in her studio where she is one of the founders of the HANDs group (Hannahs Artists and Designers)
