Field freshwater 2016

All are welcome at the preview event of the first exhibition of 2017 at Dimbola!

This exhibition of paintings and research material focuses primarily on the Freshwater landscape and Dimbola as a catalyst and meeting place for an exploration into the work of D. H. Lawrence’s novel ‘The Trespasser’, Helen Corke’s, ‘In our Infancy’ and Virginia Woolf’s ‘To the Lighthouse’ and ‘The Waves’.

Judy’s work is engaged with the poetic dialogues between writers and painters and the elemental environments that form the nature and development of their work.

‘Perhaps it was the middle of January in the present year that I first looked up and saw the mark on the wall. In order to fix a date it is necessary to remember what one saw’....... Virginia Woolf, 1917

Judy's exhibition will be shown alongside material from the Dimbola archive including the Anne Olivier Bell Gift of the photographs of the young sisters Vanessa and Virginia Stephens [later Bell and Woolf] – and original photographs taken by Patti Smith at Charleston and Monks House.

The research and development of this exhibition was supported by the Oppenhiem John Downes Trust.

The exhibition continues until 16th April. Normal museum admission applies.
