Somerset Art Weeks at Dove Studios

September 16, 2019

If you missed the performance of my sequence of poems “A Conference of Trees” in Somerton last month, here’s a chance to hear it on its home ground, in the Circle of Trees in Dove Meadow at 6.30pm on Saturday 28th September, with spine-tingling music improvised by Maya and Bron. It will last about 35-40 minutes. The trees speak to one another and to us.

Also in Dove Meadow you’ll find “Six Unravelling”: installations by Fiona Hingston, Kathryn John, Shannon Leah Watson, Sophie Willoughby, Sue Palmer and host/instigator Bronwen Bradshaw.

Look out for the Tree House Library, half-hidden in a stand of  poplars. In the last three years it has developed from an idea to a platform to a beautiful physical space, designed to house specially-commissioned handmade books by ABCD and other Dove artists celebrating this magical place. I shall be there to welcome visitors to the Tree House Library on the weekend of 28-29 September.

Work to be seen in the various studios at this venue during Art Weeks includes prints, hand-weaving and ceramics. Open 10am to 5pm Sept 21-22 and 26-29 and October 3-6.

PS. Please note that for the Open Evening only, parking is not adjacent to the studios but on Wild Lea field next to the Dove meadow, and accessed from Barton Road – watch out for signs. For all other days, come down the drive to the regular car park.

Also, Paul Stubbs is bringing his Pizza oven on the evening of the 28th, so we will not go hungry!
