OUR CURRENT POP UP

Ordinary Worlds is an exhibition of six women artists who share a common interest in representing landscape and interpreting the topographic in their work – each artist shows how we might compose landscape to suit our outlook rather than merely reflect upon a visual likeness or land use. Between them, what they depict is anything but ordinary.

Pigment stains drawn on cave walls have revealed how we once imagined landscapes populated by the creatures we hunted to survive. This early human trait of conceiving a landscape in our imagination still holds a powerful influence upon us to the present day. Technology has helped artists find new, previously unimagined possibilities for depicting the environment and altering the ways in which they represent landscape pictorially. They have embraced imaging software among more traditional means of describing our world, without reducing it to banal certainties.

PAST POP UP EVENTS

HOUGHTON HALL POP UP

29 March to 29 July, 2018


Our pop up in The Stables at Houghton Hall and ended on July 29, 2018. We showcased 41 craftspeople, artists and makers from Norfolk and the wider area of East Anglia. Each brought a simplicity of form, intent and vision that belies the complexity often involved in making their work.

Much of the sculpture, ceramics, paintings, drawings and jewellery we showcase is intensive in its production and while a simple and straight forward approach is the overriding factor they may have in common, the resulting work is anything but.

Our thanks to the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley for their generous support. We are also grateful to Robert Miller and Jennifer Taverner and all the staff at Houghton Hall who made this such a pleasure for us.  The following companies and individuals have also played a key role in supporting us in showcasing the work of all the  wonderful artists, makers and designers who of course, remain the main focus of our work. Lastly a big thank you to all 19,390 visitors who passed through the stables this year!
