Stour Surrounding – Artists and the Valley’ is a new documentary film that takes a look at artists both past and present who have responded to the landscape of the Stour Valley.
Stour Surrounding – Art and Artists of the Valley
The lecture starts at 18:00 with registration from 17:30
In the film we hear how this special landscape Ð of John Constable, Thomas Gainsborough, Cedric Morris and Alfred Munnings Ð continues to shape and speak to the work of contemporary artists today. Moving between studio interviews and beautiful footage across the valley we hear from painter and sculptor Maggi Hambling who speaks of ÔabsorbingÕ the landscape, and from Simon Carter, and May Cornet who talk expressively about how they respond to the Stour Valley and landscape in their own individual ways.
