Representing Nature

1 June - 2 June 2019

1 & 2 June

In conjunction with the exhibition,  Birds Rivers Rain (13 April – 2 June), this weekend of events will further explore, through a variety of perspectives, how nature is understood and represented in our contemporary times.

The weekend will include contributions from the leading British photographer on show at Kestle Barton, Jem Southam. There will be further contributions from well known naturalist/writer Mark Cocker (Crow Country) and the musician and poet, Virginia Astley; who published her debut poetry collection, The English River last year and has been part of Kestle Barton since its inception.

Saturday 1 June will include a morning poetry workshop with Virginia Astley and talks in gallery with Jem Southam and Mark Cocker in the afternoon.

Sunday 2 June will start early with a moth trap investigation and walk with Mark Cocker and a further poetry workshop with Virginia Astley in the afternoon.

Light lunch boxes will  be available to purchase in the garden both days.

Please contact the gallery for further information.
