Trees on Tour
Where did the time go? Nearly the end of April already, and we’re excitedly preparing tobring The Long View exhibition to the south of the country. Seven remarkably ordinary trees will soon adorn the walls at Oxford’s North Wall Arts Centre and at O N C A in Brighton. Do come along if you’re anywhere near.
North Wall Arts Centre, Oxford: May 5 – 26 *
O N C A, Brighton: May 30 – June 10
*The Long View will be in Oxford during Oxfordshire Artweeks – a perfect time of year to set aside a day or two and browse the diverse range of work on show in galleries and studios across the county. There’s an overview of all that’s on show on the Oxfordshire Artweeks site here.
Special invite for blog readers …
If you’d like to join us for the preview in either location, do contact us so we can put you on the list. Oxford, May 8th, 6.30-8.30pm; Brighton, May 31st, 6-8pm.
And if you’d like to share stories and/or photos of trees that mean a lot to you, please get in touch. It’s always a pleasure to share the love, and we’d be really happy to add your trees and tree stories to those that have already been contributed here.
Reflections on Newcastle
The show in Newcastle at Great North Museum: Hancock was a huge success – so much so that the exhibitions officer told us it was one of the best exhibitions they’d ever hosted. Can’t get much better than that! We also felt somewhat humbled by this review in Corridor8, which celebrated the way that the exhibition extends beyond the apparently simple concept of seven trees, and got beneath the surface of the work that we’ve been sharing. We’re looking forward to finding out what Oxford and Brighton residents think and finding out more about trees that are well loved in these areas.
