Honiton gallery showcases online art to connect with nature during lockdown

The Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) in Honiton is running online art to explore ways of connecting with nature during lockdown.

The gallery has teamed up with East Devon AONB to showcase Nature Shorts – online art featuring the outdoors, land and space.

The gallery said the Nature Shorts aims to connect with nature during isolation, sharing different artistic approaches to land and space – with the highlighted artists working across a range of materials and processes including land art, photography, printmaking and performance.

Ruth Gooding, THG curator, said: “As we move our public programme into the digital realm, we are hoping to support our Thelma Hulbert Gallery community and reach out to new online audiences.”

The artists include Emma Molony, Gordon Field, Gabrielle Hoad and Megan Calver. Also George Barron, Paul Blakemore, Jo Lathwood, Mike Perry and Fourthland.
