IN View: five viewpoints on a landscape exhibition and VARC Open Studio and events

IN View: five viewpoints on a landscape was an exhibition curated by Cynthia Morrison-Bell and supported by Highgreen Arts and Art Circuit Touring Exhibitions.   Paintings by Chloe Fremantle, sculptural pieces by Helen Pailing  and works in ceramic by Megan Randall were shown in outbuildings at Highgreen.

The exhibition’s private view on 23rd April was held in conjunction with VARC and part of an afternoon and evening of events that also featured an Open Studio and Artist’s Talk with Zoe Childerley, VARC’s newest artist in residence. Zoe had set up a photo booth and visitors could get a portrait photograph taken by the artist.  There was also a chance to find out more about Karen Rann’s ‘Great Lines’ project in which Karen is researching the history of contour lines and making artwork in response.   Visitors were able to assist Karen in a demonstration of ‘levelling’ which was fun.

Karen Rann’s Great Lines project is supported by VARC and Arts Council England.

Megan Randall spent a month in residence at Highgreen supported by Northumberland National Park Authority and funded by the Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre and Arts Council England.
