Mappa Marches touring Art trail is a project co ordinated by myself and Helen Arthur which celebrates the solace and magic in the Marches region through creativity.
It tours to Herefordshire venues throughout 2022 with the final exhibition at
The Sidney Nolan Trust in Presteigne in October.
So excited to announce that I will be co-curating a new Arts Council England (ACE) funded project in the Herefordshire area and that planning for this is underway. The idea for the project and impetus to apply for funding came from my friend Adrienne Craddock – who was incidentally my first ever tutor in printmaking a good few moons ago.
Mappa Marches brings together a group of 9 artists and poets to celebrate the solace and mystery of place here in Herefordshire and celebrate our landscape. The group will take a touring exhibition to 8 museums and libraries around the county of Herefordshire, here on the border with South Wales. We will also be offering free workshops to deserving groups like Headway and Rejuvenate Carers group.
I will keep you updated about progress.
