25 May 2012: Modernism in Wiltshire

Circle and tangents: art in the shadow of Cranborne Chase, an exhibition held Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum, 25 May – 29 September

“This exhibition brings together a unique collection of paintings and sculpture made by artists who, from the 1920s to the present, have found in Cranborne Chase and its hinterland a landscape of inspiration, seclusion and ‘bare-boned’ beauty. Items in the exhibition have been drawn from a variety of sources, many from private collections, and range from early neo-romantic works to contemporary pieces made specifically for this exhibition … Circles and Tangents is curated by Vivienne Light, and is complemented by her lavishly illustrated book of the same name, available from Salisbury & South Wilts Museum or online from Canterton Books.” (from the Museum website)
