Last night I popped over to the opening of Mat Chivers new exhibition at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton. I’d never been to this gallery before, but it’s a real gem. Located in the old house and studio of Thelma Hulbert, it now has visiting exhibitions, cafe and a wonderful space for children’s art. ...

Finding stories, making work

04.25.2012 · Posted in Art Projects, Stone Exposures

Last week, I headed down the coast once again. This time to Bridport, and with Nicola Thomas, John Wylie and Ian Cook from the Geography department here in Exeter.

Spring visits

04.12.2012 · Posted in Stone Exposures

Spring is really arriving here on the coast. A couple of weeks ago I went down to Burton Bradstock to meet the artists from Proboscis to talk about time on the coast, as part of their commission by ExLab. As I drove down, the mist lay in the valleys and a haze of green was ...

ExLab meeting, Durlston

01.30.2012 · Posted in Art Projects, Stone Exposures

A foggy day in Swanage. The cliffs, sea, castle, everything had disappeared, the sounds of birds muffled. But inside the education centre at Durlston Country Park, things were buzzing.

All 5 artists presented their work, based in different landscapes along the Dorset stretch of ...

Ichthyosaur

Richard had found a fragment of the spine in a block on Christmas day, and after days of hunting, discovered the place where the block had ...
