Delighted to help sponsor Amazing Space, the event that celebrates 45 years of the Dove Studios in Butleigh. The Dove has been an arts and crafts centre committed to excellence in the arts and to art education in the wider community since its inception in 1970. The exhibition includes specially commissioned work by local artists - Bronwen Bradshaw, Pennie Elfick, Michael Fairfax and Fiona Hingston – who have made site specific installations inspired by the Dove; emerging artist Jenny Newbury has produced a specially commissioned work inspired by the archive; and there is a fine display of Mini Prints and Books prints by the Dove students as well as a sculpture garden. Thanks to a well preserved and documented archive, an illustrated book highlighting the history of The Dove has been published. The exhibition runs throughout Somerset Art Weeks, from 3rd to until 18th October. It’s Venue 81 and can be found on Barton Road, Butleigh, Somerset BA6 8TL. There is a considerable amount to see!
