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.
Drawn 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.
