New Exhibition Opening at the Maeldune Heritage Centre!
Our next Exhibition opens on Tuesday 26th April!
‘Saltmarsh’ features work by four contemporary artists based in Essex – David Britton, Heidi Jukes, Simon Keenleyside and Rachel Spender.
Atmospheric and evocative, these Artists all engage with the wilderness of the Essex coastline and their work has been selected to explore the particular `border zone between land and sea’ the` in-between space, where questions about one’s place in the world come unbidden, an exposed terrain offering both a sense of freedom but also uncertainty and danger’ ( Ken Worpole, The New English Landscape).
‘The shoreline is a place where human and natural forces meet, often dangerously, sometimes tragically, both in fiction and in life. Yet it is also a place of redemption and revelation, reminding us that human life and the natural worlds are part of the same order of things, mutually shaping and changing each other through space and time.’ (Ken Worpole, The New English Landscape, Field Station, London 2013 )
There will be a poetry reading by Essex poets Rosie Sandler, Judith Woolton and David Canning on Saturday 7 May 2016, 2 – 3 pm. Free event, booking essential (email@example.com).
Children’s workshops in conjunction with the exhibition will be running on Saturday 30 April 2 – 4pm. £3 per child (pay on the door).
The exhibition runs until 10th May. More exhibitions follow all through the rest of the year, and every three weeks will see a fresh exhibition – just keep an eye on the website for updates.
