Our Place in the Seven Heavens
A Celebration of Home: Artists Consider “Our Place in the Seven Heavens”, a New Exhibition at Artizan Gallery
In May, Artizan Gallery opens their first mixed show of 2019 with local artist, poet and curator Becky Nuttall. “Our Place in the Seven Heavens” will encourage artists and audiences from across Torbay and the South West to take a closer look at their home , observing its heritage and history as a creative destination whilst also considering our wider significance (or perhaps insignificance) in the Seven Heavens.
Drawing from a wide-ranging artistic and literary background, Becky’s inspiration for the exhibition was taken from a number of local sources. “I visited Torre Abbey years ago and saw the Holman Hunt painting called The Children's Holiday and, in the past, I have studied the Pre Raphaelites at certain times in my academic career, experiencing their work in London, Manchester and Liverpool without knowing that we have several works in Torbay including Burne-Jones' Pre Raphaelite cartoons for stained glass windows of The Planets. These are beautiful drawings of the solar system using romantic and symbolic imagery.”
