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: Rosemary Bonney
Living in Holne, on the fringe of Dartmoor, brings me into contact with some outstanding countryside- dramatic moorland, woods, rivers and an abundance of wildflowers throughout the seasons.  Further afield lies the beautiful coastline of the South Hams and beyond that, the artistic influences of Cornwall.  My inspiration is derived from these environments.

In my earlier work I used acrylics and/or oils supplemented with oil pastels, oil bars and pens and pencil to varying degrees.  Texture paste, sand, moorland grass also featured in my paintings.   Currently, however, I have been working in oils to paint the Dartmoor landscape in a more contemporary style.  I superimpose glazes of pure colour to achieve an overall glow to the canvas and a semi-abstracted style that is finished with sparingly used touches of solid paint.  I observe and photograph when out in the landscape and absorb information from the subject matter.  The personal feeling which the subject arouses in me is important.
