A major art event in Somerset linking culture and environment. Encounter contemporary artworks while exploring the spectacular, wild landscapes of abandoned and working quarries in rural East Mendip.
Fourteen leading local and international artists, all with connections to the South West, have created a series of site-specific artworks in response to the nature of quarries and their place in the cultural and industrial heritage of the region. Contemporary sculpture, land art, photography, textiles, painting, drawing, sound, spatial poetry and printmaking will be installed in these environments, aiming to inspire, fascinate and inform.
Opening in July and stepping up in 3 phases to its finale in October 2015, the event will occupy 6 different venues including 1 working and 2 disused quarries.
