ART - WORD - PLACE

Arts North West Exhibition


Curated by Caroline Downer 
 

Art Word Place focuses on the interplay between text and image. Writers from the Arts North West region have been commissioned to create a short poem based on their home landscape.  Selected artists have then drawn on this composition as the basis and inspiration of a new work capturing the identity and sense of place of the New England North West. There are recurring themes – of rivers, plains and sky, of drought, of adversity but also of optimism.

Artists: Gabi Briggs, Leah Bullen, Peter Champion, Jan Clark, Sharon Gilmour, Michelle Hungerford, Nancy Hunt, Paula Jenkins, Maree Kelly, Rowen Matthews, Liz Munro, Angus Nivison, Fay Porter, Liz Powell, Max Powell, Liz Priestley, David Waugh, Jo White
