New for 2019 – introducing our baby-friendly talks by RAMM’s curators. These talks are only for parents and carers with children under 18 months, so there’s no need to worry about disturbing other visitors during the talk.

Join Curator Michele Green on a tour around our Women Artists exhibition. Shining a spotlight on female artists in RAMM’s fine art collection, this exhibition features works from the 1770s until 2011.

Works include those by the suffragette artist Olive Wharry (1886-1947) and her views of Exeter after the blitz, the popular Victorian children’s book illustrator Kate Greenaway and detailed watercolour studies of birds and insects by Miss Ann Lee, painted in the 1770s.

There are also modern works by Barbara Hepworth, Gillian Ayres, Mary Martin, Dame Laura Knight, Primrose Pitman and Judith Ackland, amongst others.

This event is for people with their babies and toddlers. Children will be able to have free movement whilst the talk takes place and toys and books will be provided for their entertainment.
