Organized by: The Ropewalk
This body of work arose from Linda’s eighteen-month plus engagement with three nature reserves, supported by funds from the Arts
Council England. The National Reserve at Far Ings and the RSPB Blacktoft Sands Reserve provided a wealth of inspiration through very different formations of habitat; Far Ings at Barton developing out of the clay pits that provided materials for brick and tiles, and RSPB Blacktoft Sands, at the confluence of the Humber, Ouse and Trent, a wildflower meadow newly formed from an ex-arable field. Observation of botany and habitat meets consideration of location and place throughout the work which is added to by a series of pieces developed from a microresidency at RSPB Saltholme – a reserve which again grows out of industry by the Tees Estuary. The exhibition can be seen in Gallery One from Monday to Saturday between 10am and 5pm and on Sundays and Bank Holidays from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free
