‘A major new exhibition of trees in contemporary art at Black Swan Arts in Frome will feature work by thirty-six Arborealists, some of international reputation, and six guest artists, as well as the painter Paul Nash.
The Arborealists were founded by artist and curator Tim Craven in 2013. Following the exhibition ‘Under the Greenwood: Picturing the British Tree’. The exhibition was staged at St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Lymington, in the heart of the New Forest. The group are a loose association of some 60 artists of diverse art practice who share the subject of the tree. The group is far flung with members from Wales and the borders to East Anglia and London and every southern county from Kent to Cornwall. Outposts include Yorkshire, France, Italy and Ireland.
The Arborealists enjoy a national profile and have already staged 8 exhibitions to acclaim in the UK and France. With many more planned for the future. They have also produced 2 illustrated publications to complement the exhibitions.’
