Allotments, food growing, wildlife and nature are all fertile soils for the creative impulse


A new exhibition ‘Allotted’ shows how the 9 very different artists who form part of the Slug Society have responded to the ‘allotment experience’. The resulting work, covers a range of media from stained glass through painting and printmaking, photography and video to 3-D and installations. 
Three writers are also members of the Slug Society and they have produced a 32 page booklet ‘allotted - the back of the seed packet’ containing essays, stories, interviews and poems inspired by allotments. (The printing of this booklet has been funded by the National Allotments Gardens Trust.)

The 9 artists are: Carol Barlow, Janet Brady, Dorothy Ellin, Jennifer Gilmour, Maggie Hargreaves, Margaret Jackson, Kevin Shipley, Steph Shipley and Susan Syddall
The 3 writers are: Ros Davis, Robert Eldon and David Jackson
