Exeter School of Art

The first school of art in Exeter was founded in 1854 and lived through several incarnations before merging with Polytechnic South West in 1988. Polytechnic South West became the University of Plymouth in 1992 and by 2000 had begun to move its provision to its main campus where as the Faculty of Art and Design, it lives on in the heart of the city of Plymouth.

James Ravilious Archive

Some of you may already be aware of the wonderful project in which we are involved with Beaford Arts in making selected examples of the famed James Ravilious archive available for the public to buy.

It proved a real labour of love for us at Focal Point, who all knew James well, to help bring his study of life in Devon to a wider audience. Scanning his original negatives and trying not to drool over the contact sheets that told us the stories surrounding his well loved and iconic images.

The scanning portion of our part in the project took us nine months to complete, with three of us rotating the task. We benefited greatly, of course, in having access to Alan Winn who spent some time printing for James and gave us unique insight into how to prepare the files just as the great man himself would want them.

The results of our efforts are available to browse and purchase here -
