Harvesting Time, a joint initiative between Drawn to the Valley and Tamar Valley AONB’s Cordiale Project*, has encouraged artists to explore their heritage and listen to people who live and work in the Valley, to stimulate the creation of pieces of work which respond to sustainability, ecological and environmental issues.
Drawn to the Valley member, Tessa Clarke, explains the thought process behind the exhibition; “Think about how the Tamar Valley might be in another 100 years. What will still be here? Do we appreciate how the land has supported us and are we prepared to protect our heritage?”
Artists can help people to answer these questions. They can tell the stories of the past in a different way.
Would you like to look back into archives, speak to local people who have lived and worked in the Valley and look at past artists’ work to see how the land has changed?
Would you like to visit some special places and learn about them from someone who knows about the history and heritage? If the answer is yes then come to the exhibition of Harvesting Time. Make your thoughts known by voting for your favourite piece of work and seeing the results of our artists’ hard work.
Drawn to the Valley have a membership of over 160 artists and craftspeople who all draw their inspiration from the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
