The Valley Project

The Valley in the Glass Exhibition 22 Nov to 18 Dec 2016, Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm

The Works

Amanda spent five years walking, looking and listening in Gloucestershire’s Slad Valley with camera, sketchbook and sound recorder to hand.  Her aim was to explore the cultural, emotional and practical connections we feel with the land and its wildlife, and how these have changed over time, for good or ill. In 2014 her exhibition “Valley Under the Skin” celebrated the valley’s beauty (click here to see a selection of  the work featured in that exhibition). Now, in “Valley in the Glass she brings together striking glass sculptures with the photographs and stories that inspired her and a haunting soundscape, to create an uplifting and thought-provoking experience of this most treasured valley.

The Venue - Nature in Art

Nature in Art is the perfect venue for an exhibition drawing on the natural world, the world’s first museum and art gallery dedicated to fine, decorative and applied art inspired by nature. The lovely Nature in Art Museum & Art Gallery is at Twigworth, Gloucestershire,  GL2 9PA.
