ART from HEART and The Stanton Guildhouse Trust proudly present Mythical Woods, a multimedia group art exhibition Celebrating the Woodlands and its enchanted stories and myths!
For centuries, the woodlands have inspired humankind and served as the backdrop for numerous intriguing and fascinating stories in mythology, folklore, and popular fiction in various cultures around the world. They portray the wilderness as a place of ambiguity, where good and evil are a matter of perspective.
Mythical Woods possess power and agency. They are often viewed as an environment of opportunity and adventure beyond human control. They represent life, freedom, wildness, growth, and rebirth, but also signify danger, risk, and the hope of survival.
The 25 participating Artists have been inspired by the woodlands, drawing on its symbolism, or its multiple connotations while bringing us closer to nature. Their interpretations of the theme are as varied as their mediums, including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, paper book, mosaics and ceramics.
The Exhibition was Organised and Curated by ART from HEART in partnership with The Stanton Guildhouse Trust.
All are Welcome!
