Lady Park Wood Opening Night

Lady Park Wood

Exhibition Private View and Film

Arborealists gathered for the opening night of the exhibition at Monmouth Museum in the Wye Valley.

George Peterken OBE, forester and ecologist gave a talk describing the project

Tim Craven and Fiona McIntyre also spoke about the responses of the artists. Our first site-specific project was in Lady Park Wood, Monmouthshire at the invitation of renowned woodland ecologist George Peterken. He has studied this wood for decades as a scientist and was keen to find out how artists might see and respond to this special place. The Arborealists spent a spring and autumn weekend with George in the wood last year, and some returned to make further work on location. The show at Monmouth is the first of two shows of work by participating artists, and gives an intimate and fascinating perspective. There is a follow up show next year, and we have also commissioned a film about Lady Park Wood and our project:


The exhibition runs from May 5 - September 9 2018. Opening hours 11 - 4 daily. ( closed 9, 16 & 23 May)
