Free
Booking essential

This exhibition launches a year during which Salisbury Arts Centre focuses on environmental concerns. On show will be the work of four artists influenced by global and local landscapes.

Text and photographic works by Richard Long document his walks through the landscapes in Ireland and Japan. A series of black and white photographs by Fay Godwin from 1975 capture the timelessness of the Wessex countryside. Painter Lydia Halcrow (pictured) exhibits brand new work inspired by her walks on Salisbury Plain, collapsing tank path maps with landscape vistas to create brooding images. Rob Irving uses photographs and modified LiDAR maps to explore the myth of subterranean 'Earth energies', which course through Avebury's ritual landscape.

Meet the Artists
Saturday 23 January at 2pm

An informal discussion with Lydia Halcrow and Rob Irving who will talk about their work and how the pieces in the exhibition play a part in their wider artistic practice. The discussion will be followed by a tour of the exhibition with the artists and exhibition curator. Tickets are free but booking is essential.
