The Summer Show is the longest running Devon Guild exhibition, launched in 1955 to celebrate the skills and original work of long-standing Guild Members through to the newest faces.

The exhibition is selected by the Guild’s Members’ Selection Committee, a representative from the exhibitions team and an independent craft professional, just a week prior to opening to the public. More than 250 Guild Members have the opportunity to submit their work, which ranges from traditional to cutting edge crafts.

A key event in the Guild’s exhibition calendar, Members use the opportunity either to present a truly iconic piece of their work or to create something new and experimental. It's an opportunity for visitors to enjoy a wide variety of contemporary craft and for the Guild to showcase the outstanding talent of their membership. This eclectic exhibition covers a vast range of mediums, including ceramics, textiles and print.

A selection of awards will be presented to makers, and visitors are encouraged to vote for their favourite maker in The People’s Choice Award. The winner of this award is announced at the end of the show.
