Tobermory’s An Tobar hosts yet another innovative exhibition – Fieldwork – from 3rd March – 18th April, 10.00am – 4.00pm Mondays to Saturdays. Admission is free.
Fieldwork explores concepts of place and landscape and the work exhibited was part of the outcome of a field trip to Mull in 2008 by artists network, Land2. It includes photography, film, drawing and sculpture. It explores how art can engage with the problems and possibilities of place and landscape.
It features work by Judith Tucker, David Walker-Barker, Lily Markiewicz, Jane Millar, Gail Dickerson, Claire King, Ray Lafferty, Suze Adams, Josh Biggs and Iain Biggs.
Land2 is a creative, practice-led research group comprising a national network of artists and researchers with an interest in landscape and place-orientated research practice. The network meets regularly for exhibitions, symposiums and conferences. For more information on their work, visit the Land2 website.
In association with this exhibition, An Tobar is running two other events, both of which, like this exhibition, are in the For Argyll Events calendar. They are:
- Methods of Engagement and Articulation of Landscape - on Monday 6 April 2009, from 11.30am – 5.00pm.
