Rural Artists in Residence present From Sticks to Stone
Rural Artists in Residence (RAIR) are a national organisation committed to furthering the profile of professional artists from rural areas. From Sticks to Stone is their first exhibition highlighting the work of contemporary artists from Dorset.
It is a timely parallel that we open the doors of our green and pleasant land the same week that Danny Boyle launches his vision for the nation. There is no doubt that the trend towards nostalgic or arcadian revolution has been growing with quiet momentum and this is our contribution to its proliferationâ¦a welcome antidote to urban appetite.
Main room artists include: Ursula Leach, Chris Edwick, Rob Woolner, Phyllis Wolff, David Marl, Nicholas Hely Hutchinson and Richard Hoare. For more information and images of the art on show please visit http://rair.org.uk.
From Sticks to Stone is hosting evening viewings and drinks at The 54 Gallery from 18.30 onwards on 31st July, August 3rd & 9th. All are welcome. If you have never been to Shepherd Market before, you will find it a truly welcome persuasion away from the noise and chaos of the city streets. From Sticks to Stone at The 54 Gallery lies within a charming small square and piazza. It comprises a number of small side streets with a variety of boutique shops, restaurants and impressive Victorian pubs. This tiny little enclave is tucked away between Piccadilly and Curzon Street, in the exclusive borough of Mayfair. The neighbourhood's quaintness removes one from the congestion and urgency of nearby Piccadilly and oftentimes leads one to forget they are in central London at all. Could there be a more perfect place for this rural themed exhibition to take place?
