Making a Mark
was the gallery's summer exhibition this year - a celebration of craftsmanship. At the Private View on 13 May the Lettering Arts Trust in Snape had a display about its work and some of the letter carvers exhibiting in Making a Mark
gave demonstrations. Sarah Harrison, CEO of the Lettering Arts Trust opened the exhibition.
The exhibition complemented Inspired by the Word
, an exhibition running until September in Winchester Cathedral, Gilbert White's Garden at Selborne, Chawton House Library, Petersfield Physic Garden 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.
