Out There – Looking Good

 

Lady Cholmeley with the 9 members of Nolitex in the Stable Yard on Sunday 19th August, a swelteringly hot and still day for  Meet The Artists.

Despite the challenging weather since we set up the exhibition at Easton Walled Gardens 10 days ago, everything is pretty much still in place, and still looking good.  There are only  a few days left to see the exhibition now, Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, so get your skates on.

Above are Judith Burnett’s Seed Packets in the vegetable garden, vintage style packets painted and stitched and sited perfectly.

Liz Welch’s Digitalis Fanciflora “Red Hot Embers”, just one of 19 new specimens of a very rare plant indeed. If you look carefully you will see that they are all made out of recycled gloves.

Janet Wain’s Walk The Garden is a glorious collection of little people swaying and moving in the wind, keeping an eye on everything in the garden.

Visitors to the Gardens considering Digitalis Fanciflora, perhaps they are enjoying some of the fanciful pseudo Latin names such as “Mittenensis” or  “Marigoldii”.

The Group Piece “Petals In The Wind” is being added to by members of the public, it drifts and floats gently in the breeze from branches and twigs, resembling Wisteria and Laburnum.

Fingers crossed for some kinder weather for the rest of the exhibition, it has certainly given us food for thought in designing for an outside space.

For those who can’t get to the exhibition, we have a CD catalogue of all the pieces in the exhibition in close up and with overall images, plus information from each artist about their work.  These are available for £5 from Liz Welch  rarelizzie@hotmail.co.uk.
