This exhibition of contemporary craft, poetry, dance, film and photography responds to the life, work and legacy of pioneering Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron and her circle.

Known as the ‘Freshwater Circle’, Julia hosted a salon of eminent artists, writers, thinkers and scientists at Dimbola. QuayCrafts is an artist-led group, living and working on the Isle of Wight, working in a wide range of media to challenge the boundaries of contemporary craft. The group have invited poets, musicians, dancers and other artists to join them in creating a festival of the arts exploring the themes, pre-occupations and surroundings of Julia and her friends.

This exhibition forms the centrepiece of a project which has sought to foster an atmosphere of artistic experimentation in keeping with the spirit of Julia and the aspirations of Dimbola today, to create a vibrant centre for the arts. A programme of opportunities for schools and community organisations has brought new audiences and participants to the festival. ‘Out of the Shadows’ has created connections between artists working in a range of different disciplines, leading to new collaborations, partnerships and possibilities.

The exhibition runs until 31st December, please visit our website for opening times. A programme of special events runs throughout the autumn including workshops, talks & performances look out for these events advertised on here or visit for listings and full details.

Please note our opening times are Wednesday-Sunday 10am-4pm for October & then 10am-3pm for November & December. Hours will vary over Christmas.

Exhibition finishes on the 31st December.
