'Above and Below', an exhibition of curated works and artefacts that call communities to action in a collective response to the threats facing our coastlines and wider environment.


The Time and Bell Project was first conceived in 2008 by Marcus Vergette (artist, sculptor, bell-maker) and now includes 7 completed and 6 in progress bells along the UK coastline. The bells are public artworks, gifted to reinforce connections in local communities, between different parts of the country, between the land and the sea, between ourselves and our environment.

Whilst these are not explicitly environmental works, they remind us of the intangible relationships we have with each other and the world around us, and in doing so draw our attention to the fragility of our environment and the impact we inevitably have through our irrevocable connection to it.

As part of Devon Open Studios 2022, we are delighted to host castings and other artefacts from the Time and Tide Bell project as part of a programme delivered by partners at Exeter University. Alongside this, we will be showing new works that respond to the themes celebrated by the bells following an open call to artists to submit and take part.

With support from the UK Climate Resilience Programme and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)

The venue also hosts three working studios and will run workshops throughout the event delivered by Double Elephant Print Studios.
