‘With New-Won Eyes’ – Exhibition Opening
October 22, 2014 § Leave a comment
‘Taking it’s title from Hamilton Sorley’s poem ‘To Germany’, ‘With New Won Eyes’ is an exhibition of works indirectly reflecting on the timelessness of war, and peace, to commemorate the centenary of WWI through the contrasting visions of two artists. Included is the etching ‘Standing To’ which was created for Michael Morpurgo’s ‘War Horse; Only Remembered’, (a concert and reading, currently touring the UK), as well as other recent large etchings, paintings and drawings about working horses, and the landscape of home, both agricultural and domestic. This is accompanied by a sculpture trail of works by Charlie Poulsen, whose remarkable pieces in wood, lead and concrete provide a dynamic physical element to the exhibition’.
For details click on the image above. The exhibition opens in Marlborough, Wiltshire, and will be touring over 2015-16 with an evolving body of work.
For anyone closer to home who is unable to come but would like to see the work, we will be organising an event at the gallery in Belford in December where many of the pieces from the exhibition will be on display to accompany a launch event for ‘Horse’ by Katrina Porteous.
All welcome to the event on 7th November, and if you know anyone who would like to attend please pass on the details. Now, as I still have much of the work to do, I will get back to the printing press…
