With its 75 exhibitors the 2009 summer show – the Club’s 31st – offers an impressive display of talent in Budleigh’s Public Hall. There are 244 items on view and they cover a wide variety of subjects in different genres. All are for sale, although many have already been snapped up.
This is the artwork most famously associated with Budleigh. ‘The Boyhood of Raleigh’, painted by the Victorian artist Sir John Millais in 1870 when he stayed in the town. I’ve always admired it, and often thought about how it might be viewed, as in http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2009/05/more-about-sir-walter-c-1552-1618.htmlore-about-sir-walter-c-1552-1618.htmlore-about-sir-walter-c-1552-1618.html
