Making a Mark
is a celebration of craftsmanship. At the Private View on 13 May the Lettering Arts Trust in Snape will have a display about its work and some of the letter carvers exhibiting in Making a Mark will demonstrate their skill. Sarah Harrison, CEO of the Lettering Arts Trust will open the exhibition at 12. The title of the exhibition embraces all the artists who show their fine work at The Garden Gallery.
The exhibition will complement Inspired by the Word
, an exhibition to be held in Winchester Cathedral, Gilbert White's Garden at Selborne, Chawton House Library, Petersfield Physic Garden and Petersfield Museum, and the garden at Red House Museum, Christchurch. Inspired by the Word
brings together a group of contemporary artists, some of them regular exhibitors at The Garden Gallery, to celebrate the literature of Hampshire writers Jane Austen, Edward Thomas and Gilbert White. 2017 marks the bicentenary of the death of Jane Austen in Winchester, and the centenary of the death of Edward Thomas at Arras.
