Out to Art was the name given to a series of installations and interventions in 2007 encouraging members of the public to experience both art and nature. Naturalist Matthew Oates recounts both these “doings” and the world beyond.
In 2007 Fermynwoods curated an exhibition of new paintings and prints by Alex Calinescu – work created in London between 2006 and early 2007. Long time supporter of Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, Louise Davies, recounts her memories of the exhibition and how it resonated with the quiet, homely welcome, which we hope endures to this day as we infiltrate the everyday in public spaces.
James Smith’s Alter was a 2007 photographic audit of parts of Corby that were due to change as part of the regeneration of the town. The exhibition of James’ haunting photographs is curator Graham Keddie’s pick for his Fermynwoods highlight of the past 20 years.
