Artists selected by TVAF are now having the opportunity to work at The Observatory at Mottisfont this week and next week. Each artist is allotted a 2 day slot commencing 18/17 October and then on 20/21, 25/26 and 27/28 of the month. The Observatory, a sculptural installation comprising a study and workshop can be found in a circle of beech trees at Mottisfont.
Daniel Lobb and Ruth Facey will be at The Bus Of Many Things at Mottisfont Abbey this weekend. Daniel will be undertaking a Land Art installation creating circles which could be formed with sticks, leaves, conkers, long grass, etc. and can be left hollow or filled in. The overlaps will suggest patterns that could be filled in using contrasting materials. On 7th and 10th October this will involve invited school children and on 8th and 9th October these workshops are open to the public visiting Mottisfont.
Ruth Facey will continue working on the Make Your Mark project.
This very successful project has already taken place at the Romsey Show and Andover Festival of Motoring and Ruth now has over 100 copper plaques inscribed by members of the public.
Eventually these plaques will be put together to create 3 separate artworks to be displayed throughout the Test Valley
