welcome

March 2020

Ground Works will be welcoming a host of national and international artists, writers and poets whose inspiration and concern is for our landscape and environment. The series of exhibitions and events aim to observe and view our collective response to our changing landscapes, how we react to our exterior spaces and the impact of change to our environment. Through engagement with various art media, practises and approaches, we wish to encourage discussion and observation between artists and the public.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update

It’s with a lot of sadness and considerable disappointment that we’ve decided to postpone our planned Ground Works exhibitions and events during May.
As you’ll have guessed, this is in response to recommendations around curtailing the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) 
Once the restrictions have been lifted, we intend to bring Ground Works and Landlinks to Nailsworth and other venues in Stroud. This will obviously be later in the year and we’re currently negotiating with suitable locations in September and October.
However we will proceed with our planned Landlinks, synchronised walk event that is scheduled for Sunday 22nd March. 
The walk itself has attracted artist/contributors from Europe, America and Australia and is the basis of the Landlinks exhibition. You will soon be able to read more about the walk and the background ethos that underpins it.
Shortly after the walk, we intend to add gallery pages to our website that will enable viewers to explore a digital exhibition of the work produced.  

Please keep checking our site for updates in this rapidly evolving scenario.

The artists and organisers wish you all a safe passage through this worrying period
