The Exeter Phoenix, the CCANW the Spacex, Double Elephant Print Workshop and Exeter Artspaces are all combining to bring you the Art in the Park extravaganza, which takes place n Haldon Forest on Sunday, August 16 between 11am and 4pm.
Skylines, the Ecopoetics exhibition, with its festival day on June 20, has all kinds of inventive ways to engage with language and landscape. The exhibition is taking place at the CCANW, at Haldon Forest until June 28. Elizabeth-Jane Burnett, the poet behind the event, explains how it all got started
The idea for Skylines came about during visits to CCANW stretching back to 2006 when it first opened, and really through years of personal engagement with the area – my grandparents lived in Ide, and I grew up near Crediton.
Pulling together landscape, artists and dance is a bit of theme at the moment, and the site-art touring dance company TaskForce is on the UK leg of its Liquid Landscapes tour and has pulled in local artists to help its geographic association. South Devon artist Helen Snell is part of the team and will be keeping us up to date with her collaboration.
With concerts planned in Italy and the USA later in the year, the concert from classical guitarist Alison Smith at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery on Thursday, February 19 at 1pm is your chance to catch her lilting classical style on home turf.
I’m a sucker for abstracts, what with their big colours and only a hint of what you’re looking at (often only in the title, if that). They make me think of freer times and cleverer people. Flicking through the gallery of painter Jeannine Allen, you get taken on that journey.
