Between Saturdays 15 and 22 July Avebury will host ‘Where the Lines Meet‘, a contemporary exhibition of artworks, photography and print, inspired by the uniquely mesmerising landscape in and around this ancient and evocative prehistoric site. The beautiful old chapel on Green Street, almost ‘over the road’ from The Red Lion will be the location. There will be preview to the exhibition on Friday evening (14 July) between 5:30 and 9pm. An opportunity for visitors to meet the artists as some or all of the exhibitors will be there to discuss their work.
Local artists Becky Borthwick, Heidi Nardoni, and Donna Chadwick, and photographers David White, Angela Norman and Philippe Ullens, will present their original works, each bringing their deep passion and knowledge of the Avebury landscape to life.
Photographer and local farmer David White who was born only a couple of miles from the famous Stone Circle, reflects on his lifelong connection with Avebury: “Having lived here all my life, I love this landscape now more than ever, especially in the very early hours when no one else is about. The light at sunrise is quite stunning, and it brings a unique beauty to the place that fuels my artistic inspiration.” Above as lead pic is his beautiful ‘Avebury Dronescape’.
He also embraces the idea of different artists producing artwork inspired by their love for Avebury: “It’s a pleasure to be involved with other artists who share the same passion for this much-loved area. The exhibition showcases the breadth of creativity and allows us to explore Avebury’s allure from various artistic perspectives and styles, creating a diverse and inspiring collection of artworks.”
The old chapel will be open every day between 15 and 22 July for ‘Where the Lines Meet’, from 10 am to 6 pm, enabling visitors to immerse themselves in a study of the lines found within the landscape. Curated with care, this exhibition aims to evoke the emotions and sensations inspired by the rich history and profound connection to the ancient Avebury landscape.
