Drawn to Kingsbridge Exhibition

Janet Brady The Spirit of the Tree acrylic on board with altered glass

Event Date:

From 7th December

Until 18th December


Overview

Originally working towards a spring show, the artists found their plans thwarted this year. If restrictions are eased in December the group plans to bring the Drawn to Kingsbridge exhibition to Harbour House in a pre-Christmas and post-lockdown celebration of art and its power to lift our spirits.

“United by our passion for the beautiful, but sometimes forgotten part of Devon and Cornwall”, the exhibition will have a wide appeal to both local visitors and those from afar. Original works of art will be on display, with prints and greetings cards also available.

Drawn to the Valley was founded in 2003 as a support network for artists of the Tamar Valley to contribute to the local economy. From humble beginnings its artistic community has grown to exceed 160 members working in paint and printmaking, ceramics and sculpture, and calligraphy, jewellery and textile art. The artists in the gallery throughout the exhibition will be happy to explain more about the flourishing Drawn to the Valley group.

Due to the restrictions in November the opening date for the exhibition is not yet fixed. The Harbour House and Drawn to the Valley websites will display up to date information, and once open the show will run until Friday 18 December. Admission is free.

A Talk with Mark Gatiss

You can join us in socially-distanced seating in the Great Hall for this event, or watch along online (look for the appropriate option at checkout). Registration will close and online talk ticket holders will receive a link to join the talk 24 hours before the event start time. What makes a good ghost story? Find out on this thrilling evening with the man who describes himself on social media as ‘actor, writer, strangler, Mark Gatiss. The bond between Christmas and the spooky – perhaps most embodied by the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol – is the staple of many much-loved stories. In this talk, Mark will share his own and his favourite tales as he reads from ghost stories looking at the contrast between jollity and terror; the invitation of a spectre to the feast; the tracing of the anxiety within the festivity. Mark has been writing ghoulish tales since his childhood, and is best known for his acting and writing credits on The Vesuvius Club, the BBC’s Sherlock and Dracula adaptations, and The League of Gentlemen.
