ADVENTURES is a multidisciplinary art exhibition that looks at adventure in its many forms through painting, photography, installation and making. The exhibition celebrates all adventures, from grand expeditions to micro adventures. It shows the work of 9 artists, 3 adventurers and 2 makers. Rheged Arts Officer John Stokes says: ‘ADVENTURES is an exhibition that asks what it means to be adventurous, and challenges our definitions of what an adventure is. It's about words, images and feelings which is why we have such a broad range of work from the written word through to painting and photography and even craft. Anyone can have a positive experience here, not just adventure or arts fans, it's a chance to unlock something adventurous in yourself.' The exhibtion includes contributions from Julian Cooper, Derek Eland, Richard Fisher, Roy Fleming, Mark Gibbs, Andreas Palmen, Oli Robson, Elizabeth Shorrock, Jonathan Trotman, New Writing Cumbria, Sir Chris Bonington Picture Archive, Alastair Humphreys, John Innerdale MBE, Fyne Boat Kits and Splinterbike.
