‘Forever Fields’ Art Exhibition: 24 - 26 November 2023, at Worton Hall, Cassington OX29 4SU
One of the largest art exhibitions in the area for many years is taking place next weekend, featuring 150 works of painting, photography, pottery, sculpture, installations, words and music.
It’s the overwhelming response by local people who were invited to express their feelings about the prospect of losing 3,400 acres of our countryside to Botley West Solar Farm. Over 90 artists, both professional and amateur, have made their contributions.
Forever Fields is also creating a Digital Archive from the artworks, so that if this gigantic power station is built, when the developer has to restore the fields after 40 years, there is a unique and accurate record of what was here.
Friday 24th November, 6.00 – 8.00pm (6.30 official launch)
Saturday 25th November, 10.30am – 7.00pm (3.30 – 5.00pm ‘Soundfields’ – live presentation of readings and music)
