2020 + 21

Autumn 21

I have new work showing at Lanacre Barn Gallery on Exmoor, Somerset in Trees and Woodland of Exmoor, which runs from Sat 13th- Sun 28th November. The exhibition, with fellow members of The Arborealists, is also a fundraiser for CareMoor woods and trees appeal to create new Exmoor woodland- Bye Wood.

Summer

There is a further venue for ‘Drawing on Dorset’ and I have work which can be seen as part of the exhibition along with 49 other artists at The Glebe Gallery, Shaftesbury, Dorset from 22- 30 May- part of this year’s rescheduled Dorset Art Weeks.

From 17- 27 June I will have new work featured in ‘Landlinks’ at Three Storeys, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire GL6 0JE.

I also have work showing at The Mall Galleries in London as part of the SGFA Open from 5- 10 July.

April- June

I have co-curated a new exhibition at Black Swan Arts in Frome- ‘In Pursuit of Spring’. It is the first exhibition at Black Swan Arts since March 2020 and features 50 works by Somerset Art Works members in response to Edward Thomas’ book of the same name, when Thomas journeyed west in March 1913 to meet Spring. The exhibition is also in collaboration with Little Toller Books whose edition of the book has been used to research, plan and inspire the exhibition and works.

I have produced some new work for the show, responding to one of Thomas’ photos from his journey and the notion of place and restriction of movement:

‘Bury the Wren’ has been selected for the Evolver Prize, showing at ACEArts Somerton with 49 works from other artists from 6th January

Still Life

I’m delighted to be working with Magnus Hammick and Close Ltd on Still Life- an ongoing performance which began during the summer.

The Arborealists, Trees and Woodland on Exmoor and Dartmoor, Museum of Somerset, Taunton

This exhibition developed from a collaboration with Exmoor and Dartmoor National Park Authorities who have guided the Arborealists to sites of specific interest from which each artist produced artwork about particular trees, woods and views on each of the moors.
