TAMAR VALLEY CENTRE GUNNISLAKE
Composer Arlo Anwin and Artist Explorer Karen Howse have recently reinterpreted Kit Hill Quarry using image and sound for us to all enjoy. You can go and discover it at Tamar Valley Centre in Gunnislake now.
In Spring 2023 they visited the quarry to listen, make sound recordings, drawings and marks on paper, interpreting the soundscape of the quarry. Howse used brush strokes and drawing on paper, mapping what she heard. Anwin captured the time on a lone field recorder.
This project has been kindly supported by TVAONB Sustainable Development Fund (SDF)

Culturally distinctive and non-conforming, Cornwall has long-maintained its reputation as a centre for arts and creative practice and a retreat for artists and creatives. Wild coastlines, moors, mythology, resourceful and rebellious, Truro Open: Spirit of Cornwall encompasses all of Cornwall and those who live in it today.
Truro Open is our first open exhibition showcasing the work of artists and creatives living in Cornwall. Opening on 9 October until 20 January 2024, this exhibition will celebrate works made recently or in years gone by, expressing the Spirit of Cornwall.
The work featured in this Exhibition is composed of a series of Mono prints that form a meditation on Cornish lanes, islands, migration & our interconnnectedness.
‘We are like Islands in the sea, separate on the surface, but connected in the deep.’ William James.

CAMP (contemporary arts membership Plymouth) artists present an eclectic exhibition of wall based and moving image work. We’ve timed ‘HOW LONG’ to take place during the British Art Show in Plymouth. A kind of ‘fringe’ event, though we’re not sure we like the term ‘fringe’. So if you’re coming along to ‘HOW LONG’ make sure you leave enough time to visit the British Art Show. HOW LONG is an exhibition and programme of events loosely held together around the theme of time. CAMP members were invited to submit a wall based work for the exhibition, and detail how long it took them to make it. And alongside the 2d work we’ll be screening the ‘One Minute Film Festival’ – a series of over 40 one minute films by CAMP artists. Audio pieces by Writers' Kin around the BAS9 theme of Migration can also be heard in the space. find out more here

In Lawrence House Museum, Launceston, there is a unique group of giant Herbarium (books containing a collection of preserved plant specimens) Local business man and Botanist William Wise cycled around Devon and Cornwall in the 1800’s collecting plants to press for his Herbarium. Artist explorer, Karen Howse is offering a series of plant collecting walks around Launceston, engaging people with plant pressing and printmaking processes which will culminate in the collation of the People’s Herbarium (a contemporary version of Wise’s Herbarium) with the help of local Bookbinders.
This is a BRIGHT SPARKS community project engaging people with plants, place and printmaking funded by FEAST and Cornwall Museums Partnership
Lawrence House Museum, Launceston PL15 8BA

Dunsland Shadow 1 > 2 - Monoprints
This exhibition grew from the core of 'Evolving the Forest'
The essential spirit of the coming-together of voices, thoughts and opinion to the annual gatherings at Dartington convened by art.earth is one of open-ness and fluidity. We believe this open, ecological process engenders unexpected and unusual registers, allowing for a very real and spontaneous mixing of disciplines and outlook. It may not be so unusual for artists and scientists to attempt a sharing of intellectual spaces (although unusual enough), but to broaden this to embrace architects, designers, materials experts, engineers, chemists, philosophers, policy-makers and land managers was the clarion opportunity when convening an event initially stemming from the centenary celebrations of the UK Forestry Commission.
Have a look at this project by Double Elephant Printworkshop, I have some of my prints included in the animation. Their lockdown project brings together poets, historians, animators and printmakers to turn a 1000 year old riddle from the Exeter Book into an animated encounter that can be “played” by the reader. Riddle 57 is one of nearly 100 riddles from the Exeter Book, a tenth-century anthology of poetry in Exeter Cathedral’s library, recognised by UNESCO as one of the world’s principal cultural artefacts. The riddles are playful little windows into the past. They’re dynamic – demanding to be played, replayed and interpreted.
