HOPING for your vote to enable them to have their work featured among acclaimed artists at Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum are Double Elephant Print Workshop and Magic Carpet.
Both have been short-listed for this year's Echo Local Art Show, along with Opus Mosaic Artists Group and Hive.
To help Echo readers decide who they would like to see exhibit their work at RAMM from September 24 to October 16, the Echo is profiling each of the groups.
This week it is the turn of Double Elephant Print Workshop and Magic Carpet.
Well-known artist-led group Double Elephant Print Workshop is dedicated to providing open access printmaking services to people from all walks of life and abilities.
It has around 90 artist members from the South West who do all kinds of printmaking from linocut to screenprinting, and etching to collagraph.
Many members did not do art at college or university, but have become artists later in life and learned printmaking through courses at Double Elephant.
Its exhibition it would like to display at RAMM would include original prints from renowned regional artists, alongside original prints made by new artists.
Catherine Cartwright, outreach and education co-ordinator, said: "We are so excited to be shortlisted. RAMM is such a prestigious venue and it would mean so much to all the members at Double Elephant to have their work featured in such a beautiful gallery.
"Double Elephant is small and friendly so new artists and established artists alike are encouraged and supported. Printmaking can be so quick and easy to learn which makes it very popular with people of all ages who like to be creative.
"Double Elephant outreach tutors get out and about in the community such as family days, children's centres, primary and secondary schools, and even the RD&E hospital."
Striving to make arts accessible for everyone is Magic Carpet. The group runs art workshops for people who have various mental health issues and learning disabilities.
It hopes to win the Echo Local Art Show so that it can share the stories and journeys of the individual people who have attended its arts workshops.
In its entry statement, Magic Carpet said: "For many participants it has taken great courage to attend the creative sessions and experiment with making artwork.
"For our artists, this exhibition itself will be a part of a journey through branching out and trying something new, to believing in themselves and learning new skills, and learning that they deserve recognition, as their work is important and beautiful. It is a journey not only about creativity, but also personal development, confidence-building and engagement with the wider community.
"We want to use this exhibition as an opportunity to open up the arts to include and engage with vulnerable people.
"Through this, not only will visitors be able to discover the beautiful, unique work that our participants have produced, but we will also see it as a chance to raise awareness and put an end to the stigma that surrounds people with learning disabilities and mental health issues."
All votes must be received by Friday, August 23, at noon, and the name of the successful group will be announced on Thursday, August 29.
