CAPTURE THE CASTLE
h.Art at St Michael's Church from 10 - 18 September 2016
CAPTURE THE CASTLE: JOINTLY CURATED BY TIM CRAVEN AND SIMON DORRELL
Capture the Castle, an exciting new exhibition at St Michael’s Church will run throughout h-Art (Herefordshire Art Week) in September. It will showcase over 20 contemporary artists’ response to the theme of castles - some artists are local while others are from further afield. Although united by the subject, the artists employ a diverse range of idea and style. Media will include prints, drawings, paintings, embroidery, photography and glass.
The participating artists are: Graham Arnold, Tim Craven, Simon Dorrell, Peter Davies, Diana Craven, Fiona McIntyre, Robert Amesbury Brooks, Peter Jarvis, Pauline Bullard, William Vaughan, Nick Schlee, Howard Phipps, Richard Bavin, Annie Ovenden, Tamsin Abbott, Nick de Serra, Celia de Serra, Gareth Rees-Roberts, Kate Cochrane, Alison Woodhouse, Lois Hopwood, Owen Rimington, Guy Lester, Ciara Lewis, Shelagh Popham, Alison MacGregor Grimley and Susannah Royle.
The exhibition will re-interpret the layers of meaning of the Romantic Movement through the subject of the castle and contemporary treatment will reference historic representations. It will conjure the mystique, excitement and prestige of the castle from Iron-Age hill forts to Victorian reproductions and will encourage exploration of these extraordinary buildings and sites.
St Michael’s Church will be open from 11.00 am – 5.00 pm every day between Saturday 10th – Sunday 18th September, admission free. Works will be for sale as well as artists cards and associated merchandise.
