SHADES OF GREEN EXHIBITION
SHADES OF GREEN
AN ART PROJECT CURATED BY SANDRA HIGGINS
The project is inspired by the Somerset Landscape near the picturesque village of Englishcombe just outside of Bath. It gathers together a specially selected group of artists, intentionally diverse in their practices, and asks each to respond to the same landscape view through their own personal reaction after visiting the location. This concept was conceived during the first lockdown in the UK over a year ago now and continues to develop towards an exhibition sometime later this year.
The artists range from abstract to figurative, surreal and pop, thus the exhibition will be as much a study of their individual artistic relationship with nature as the depiction of it through the works they create.
The artists participating include: Day Bowman; Louisa Burnett-Hall; Iain Cotton; David Ferry; Angelika Hamilton; Pete Hoida; Marguerite Horner; Timothy Emlyn Jones; Susan McDonald; Fiona McIntyre; David Walsh and Richard Walker.
As the exhibition develops more news and artist statements will appear here in What's On, so do return to have an update frequently.
TREE HUGGING CHALLENGE
In conjunction with the Shades of Green Project we organised a Tree Hugging Challenge and over 120 fellow tree lover’s enthusiastically responded, literally from around the world. Here is a video we prepared for International Forest Day, 2021.
