Drawing on Water Exhibition – July/August 2023 at Pound Arts Centre, Wiltshire

A bit of advanced notice that from 20th July to 26th August, my solo exhibition, Drawing on Water will be available to visit at The Pound Arts Centre in Corsham, Wiltshire.

The Exhibition

The exhibition will bring together work that I’ve been making as a result of the Queer River project, in particular pieces that draw on embodied ways of knowing my two local rivers, the Wiltshire Avons.

Please see the information below the poster for associated events.

This exhibition brings together work in a variety of media, created by James through his Queer River research project (visit www.queerriver.com). Drawings, photographs and films reflect on the process of coming to know rivers and other wetlands, through collaborative, creative and embodied practices, to understand what they need from us, and what we can gain in return.

Associated Events

The exhibition preview of Drawing on Water will take place on Thursday 20th July from 6.30pm, with everybody welcome.

A Creative River Walk led by me, with a group of 10 people, will be taking place on the morning of Wednesday 9th August, beginning with a short tour of the exhibition. Full booking details here on the Pound Arts website.

Also at The Pound, from 8th June to 5th July I’ll be showing the small scale sculptural installation Queer River: Boat and Body. A new iteration of an earlier piece, originally commissioned by Yarmouth Springs Eternal, it will be exhibited alongside that months’s main exhibition A Love Letter Lost at Sea from Kit Johns.
