Captured in Time; What is Natural Beauty?

TJANE1

Join members of the Drawn to the Valley art group for an exhibition “Captured in time; What is Natural Beauty?”

The exhibition will be held at the Tamar Valley Centre, Drakewalls, nr Gunnislake, from 
10th to 18th May, 10.00am to 4.00pm.

Preliminary drawings and sketchbooks will be on display alongside finished work, to arouse people’s  thoughts  about  the  future  of  the  valley  and what makes it an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Artists have been asked to create a contemporary piece, which celebrates the history of the valley, its community and heritage. Works may take any format or dimension; installation, performance, film, fine art, textiles, ceramics, metal, print/printmaking, paint or mixed media. It promises to be another exciting show, which will delight and enthrall visitors.

M PIRIE1Drawn to the Valley have been working in association with the Tamar Valley AONB for several years now, indeed their support was fundamental in the early years of the group, enabling the artists group to go from strength to strength. The exhibition will echo the successful collaborative Harvesting Time Project in 2012.

Drawn to the Valley; a group of over 160 local artists ranging from painters and printmakers to ceramicists, sculptors, calligraphers, jewellers and textile artists, was formed over 10 years ago. The group operate both as a support network and to promote the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and beyond. They are united by their passion for this beautiful, but sometimes forgotten, part of Devon and Cornwall. Their exhibitions and annual Open Studios event attract visitors to appreciate art in a variety of different media that reflect developments in both traditional and contemporary art.

English Heritage Angel Awards

The 2014 English Heritage Angel Awards are now open for applications and this year’s awards ceremony will be even more special than ever – an evening red carpet event at The Palace Theatre in London on Monday 3rd November.  So, do please nominate people you know who deserve recognition for rescuing our heritage. Or, if you or your organisation has been directly involved, don’t hold back – apply on your own behalf.

Applicants will be in with the chance of having a short film specially made about their project and getting lots of other publicity not to mention being centre-stage with Andrew Lloyd Webber and his team of celebrity judges at the awards ceremony and attending a special reception after the show.

The Angel Awards are for:

– the best rescue or repair of a historic place of worship

– the best rescue of an industrial building or site

– the best craftsmanship by a trainee or apprentice employed on a heritage rescue

– the best rescue of a listed building, scheduled monument, registered garden, landscape or battlefield, protected wreck or conservation area.

Apprentices, Trainees and Young People Involved in Heritage Rescues

This year, we’re particularly looking for exceptional trainees or apprentices for the Best Craftsmanship Angel. And across all the categories, we’re asking people to let us know if there was anyone, aged 15-24 involved in their project who deserves recognition. It won’t always be the case, but if there was a young person involved who showed particular passion and dedication, there’s a special section on the application form where you can tell us about him or her.

How to Apply

To be eligible for the Awards, the heritage site must be designated as nationally significant, and be, or have been, at risk from neglect or decay. Your rescue project must have been completed since 2008 or currently be well underway. More information and the all-important application form can be found here, or if you have any questions on how to apply, please contact us at:  angels@english-heritage.org.uk

The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday 1st June 2014.

The English Heritage Angel Awards are co-funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. www.andrewlloydwebberfoundation.com
