The Forever Fields Project Team is very excited to announce the Open Art Exhibition. Showcasing people’s creative response to our countryside, we are celebrating the beauty, productivity and bio-diversity of the fields and settlements that will be lost for 42 years under solar panels if Botley West Solar Power Station is built. We are delighted that many people are interested in taking part and can’t wait to see what they make.
We know that our communities are full of ideas, and we want to show them off! This exhibition is an opportunity for you to share your creative skills. Taking the fields of the Botley West patch as your inspiration, what work will you, or have you, created that conveys the sights, sounds, feelings, knowledge you have about this landscape?
Forever Fields plans to create an Archive of all the work exhibited, which will stand as a record for future generations of the nature of the landscape and how people responded and celebrated it today. Our countryside is valuable to us in myriad ways and we want this to be known and not forgotten.
The exhibition is free to enter, open to anyone, adult, child or young person. Your work does not need to have been specifically created for this exhibition, but it must fulfil the theme of ‘Forever Fields’. Your work will be included in a stunning and eclectic exhibition at beautiful Worton Hall which is located centrally, facing on to the area affected by Botley West. Worton Park is an estate committed to true sustainability, balancing renewable energy, recycling and organic food and flower production as well as protecting wildlife. The cafe at Worton Kitchen Garden will be open throughout the exhibition. Worton Park has kindly donated the hosting of the exhibition within Worton Hall. It’s the perfect location!
So whether you are taking part by contributing your creative work, or by visiting the exhibition, we look forward to seeing you there.
