About

9 November – Christmas Closure

Linescapes 

Linescapes ia an exhibition in which contemporary craft practice explores the line of the landscape and the visible changes to the natural environment occurring through human and non-human influence.

The exhibition artists are:
Carolyn Marr
Frances Marr
Alexandra Hoare
Sue Kelly
Nancye Church 

In their art sisters Carolyn and Frances Marr respond to the interplay between the effect of natural forces and human-made scars on the land. They create multi-part installations, incorporating ceramic vessels and sculpture, found objects, and mark-making using gathered materials such as peat and mud.

Alexandra Hoare is a glass artist and will exhibit a series of works titled Glimpses of Marleycombe inspired by the ancient earthworks of the Marleycombe Hill.

Sue Kelly is a multi-material artist who develops work as a personal response to the natural world. Through the use of simple forms and a limited colour palette Sue produces pieces that evoke a sense of place.

Nancye Church is a Cumbria-based jeweller making jewellery from precious and base metals using gemstones and other items. Her work is inspired by the terrestrial and planetary geology as well as man-made structures such as Neolithic standing stones and dry stone walls.
