Exhibition opens today
7th November to 12th December 2014
A Commemorative exhibition of works by Olivia Lomenech Gill (MM 1990-92) and Charles Poulsen
Taking its title from Hamilton Sorley’s poem ‘To Germany, With New Won Eyes’ is an exhibition of works indirectly reflecting on the timelessness of war, and peace, to commemorate the centenary of WWI through the contrasting visions of two artists.
Included is the etching ‘Standing To’ which Olivia created for Michael Morpurgo’s ‘War Horse; Only Remembered’ (a concert, currently touring the UK) as well as other recent large etchings, paintings and drawings about working horses, and the landscape of home, both agricultural and domestic.
This is accompanied by a sculpture trail of works by Charles Poulsen, whose remarkable pieces in wood, lead and concrete provide a dynamic physical element to the exhibition.
The Mount House Gallery,
Sculpture trail tours by arrangement. Gallery opening hours 2pm-5pm each day or by appointment.
