Visual Arts in Rural Communities (VARC)
Highgreen, Tarset, Northumberland NE48 1RP

Access: The work is installed in various outbuildings at VARC’s home of Highgreen, therefore expect uneven ground with a slope and small steps in parts. Parking is available on site.

Gil Delindro: The ephemeral sonic response hidden beneath the micro layers of organic materials is a fragile, yet rich and expansive world. This exhibition focuses on the ongoing field work carried out in the Northumberland hills. Gil has created sculptural pieces that merge local organic materials with an archive of sounds recorded during his residency.


Marc Rigelsford (aka Magic Arm): Inspired by the recent storms and using Ted Hughes’ poem ‘Wind’ as a framework, Marc has created a new sound piece to explore both the poem’s narrative and personal experiences of the force of wind around Highgreen. This work is supported by VARC, Revitalising Redesdale’s Community Heritage Fund and the National Lottery Heritage Fund

Women Artists of the North East Library (WANE) will be at Highgreen with their collection available for your to browse through. WANE are currently in residence at VARC/Tarset Village Hall until August.
