Clifford Fishwick /
Michael Garton RWA

June to August 2010

Recent joint exhibition:

in conjunction with Exeter Festival

When Michael Garton became Cliff Fishwick’s student in 1955, the Art College occupied a small part of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.

By the time Cliff, then the College’s Principal, appointed Mike as a lecturer, Cliff had started the process of change which would result in the College expanding to become a major cultural force in the city and the South West.
