Without soil there would be no life. Healthy soils are not only essential for the production of our food, timber and fibres but are a vital part of our global eco-system, filtering our water and acting as a carbon sink to reduce the impact of climate change. That’s why the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World (CCANW) commissioned 13 artists to explore it for the United Nations International Year of Soils 2015.
Art lovers flocked to the opening of the new South West Academy exhibition at East Devon’s popular Thelma Hulbert Gallery.
Karl Blossfeldt: Art Forms in Nature is a Hayward Touring exhibition which presents an original portfolio of 40 photogravures from 1932, entitled Wundergarten der Natur, edited by the artist and published in the year of his death. The exhibition, which is calling into Honiton’s Thelma Hulbert Gallery, presents an opportunity to witness an exemplary set of Blossfeldt’s signature close-up images of plants and flora.
It was Charter Day in Honiton, but that didn’t stop the visitors swarming to THG (the Thelma Hulbert Gallery) in Dowell Street to see the new exhibition, Renewal and Regeneration.
THG – the new acronymn the Thelma Hulbert Gallery – is launching its THG Open 2010 Renewal & Regeneration tomorrow (Saturday, July 24) with a special opening from 1-3pm, including a prize giving at 2pm.
The Thelma Hulbert Gallery (that’s THG, to you) Open Exhibition has something of a reputation for the work that’s included, and now that the gallery has been revamped and reopened with somewhat of a flourish, it’s a perfect opportunity to exhibit your work in a vibrant and successful gallery.
