This exhibition is inspired by the Mariner’s Way, one of Devon’s ancient pathways. In April 2012 Devon artist Edward Crumpton produced a sculpture to celebrate the social history of this almost mythical walk.

One year on the University of Exeter is staging an exhibition that investigates the artist’s thinking behind the piece and his experimentation with rope as an art form. As a record of his 73 mile walk Edward has made a video which explains the theory behind the Mariners Way sculpture, a number of Winter inspired oil paintings and several limited edition wood cuts.
