exhibitions & events

A selection of exhibitions coming up soon, or currently open.

CURRENT

A GENEROUS SPACE

Selected for @artistsupportpledge ASPSHow at Hasting Contemporary.

Delighted to be showing in A Generous Space, a physically present exhibition of works by artists selling pieces through Matt Burrows (MBE) excellent initiative that began during lockdown. Instagram is where it all started and I recommend you go there to find out more. And visit my Instagram stream to see new works being uploads for purchase, all less than £200.


Old Passage Exhibition

Kel Portman, artist and founder of Walking the Land, curates exhibitions of works for sale in this historic old in, now a restaurant, on the bank of the River Severn at Arlingham.

Visit the Old Passage soon to see the wonderful artworks, maybe buy one for a Christmas present? While you are there, take a lovely walk and enjoy the excellent cakes and light lunches while you gaze out of the window at the river. What’s not to like?

The Edge Conference at UHI

The culmination of almost two years of seminars, blogs and other activities exploring the theme, The Edge UHI Conference will take place online on 15th & 16th December 2021.

I regularly participate in activities organised by Walking the Land. Thanks to covid this Stroud based artists walking group has expanded its boundaries with no limits. We have put together a showreel including several artists in response to the concept of Watermarks.

This is my offering, but do register to attend on Eventbrite – there is a fantastic line up of artists and speakers. Book here.


Wells Art Contemporary 2021

All selected works and installations will be shown in the iconic Wells Cathedral from Saturday 28 August to Sunday 26 September 2021. The exhibition at Wells Cathedral will also coincide with the installation of a new Antony Gormley work that will be exhibited on the West Front of the Cathedral.

When You Call I Shall Come is no.1 on the trail map around the beautiful Wells Cathedral. It is a privilege to have my film installed in the perfect space – when you arrive to see the artworks inside, listen carefully, you will hear the beautiful voice of Eva Rune seeping through the automatic doors. As they open and you enter the space, the film is being screened, welcoming you to this huge exhibition. Sit down on the time-worn stone benches, watch and listen as you witness a film made of the famous Severn Bore, during the spring tides of 2020, in deep lockdown. No surfers, no viewers, just you and the River Severn. Eva’s traditional Nordic calling song captures the sense of longing we all felt, and the imagery reveals the nature of the Severn stripped of human intervention.

The 2021 version has been stripped of the words it originally carried, because there are no words to describe that time and place.
