This exhibition draws attention to the ground beneath our feet, celebrating the stuff of landscape and its extraordinary potential in the hands of very skillful artists. Looking with fascination at spectacular and timeless rock faces or relishing transient fortuitous moments in wild coastal places, both Jan Walker and Frances Hatch in their paintings, and Robin Welch in his ceramics, take the material the Earth is made from and communicate through it and about it.

    Reblogged this on Jessica's Nature Blog and commented:
    I loved this exhibition. The artists, with their different approaches, capture so expertly and with such innovative styles, all that delights me about the rocky Dorset coastline. It is well worth a visit.
