Brixham Harbour Colours

Event Date: 29th Oct 2022 - 19th Nov 2022

Join us for a solo show of photography to be hosted in our rear gallery space, which takes its inspiration from the harbour at Brixham.

Living in a fishing community it is difficult to avoid blocks of vibrant colour. To an extent it dictates the way Mark Murton sees when he is exploring Brixham Harbour – particularly the deceptively simple graphic designs that adorn the day boats and trawlers.

As a result he has found himself naturally drawn to shape, form and colour in his photographs, elements which are all depicted in this exhibition.

‘The enjoyment I get just from observing the effects of the low light of the sun is an end in itself.’

The exhibition will run alongside two other exhibitions of photography across our other gallery spaces: From the Archive, a selection of photography held by Torquay Museum and a mixed show from our own collection.

The exhibition will launch on Friday 28 October 6 – 8pm.
