Saturday 18th September - Wednesday 3rd November 2021
We published our book ‘Climb up to the Moor’ in 2011 and subsequently the paintings used as illustrations in the book became part of a touring exhibition highlighting the importance of moorland which visited many venues all over the country.
This exhibition revisits the subject of moorland especially as a response to more recent focus on our changing climate and the approaching COP talks in Glasgow in November. Our moorland peat bogs are more efficient than rainforests at carbon capture and storage. We will be showing prints and originals and the book will also be available to purchase.
We are holding the exhibition during Richmond’s Walking and Book Festival, and will be giving a talk at The Station in Screen 2 about how the book came about on Thursday 23 September from 11.00 – 12.00 noon.
Judith writes: ‘I have been walking and exploring the moors for some years, drawing, painting, and taking notes. The more time I spent up on the moorland with the calls of curlew and lapwing, the more I rediscovered my true relationship with the changing of the seasons, the turning of the earth, and the more passionate I became about caring for our precious jewel of a planet.
‘I feel strongly that if only we could regain total consciousness of our connection to the earth we would want to act in harmony with the natural world instead of merely plundering it as a commodity.’
