The King of the Cats
and other stories
4th Oct – 9th Nov 2014
Come and meet Boggarts, haunted Hares and talking Cats and be immersed in windswept moorland, snow capped hills and icy becks.
The Whitaker is proud to announce the inaugural exhibition of the King of the Cats, a touring exhibition, funded by the Arts Council, of text, sound, ceramics, sculpture, painting, painted objects and drawings.
Four local visual artists respond to old Lancashire folk tales and their contemporary retelling by acclaimed writer and storyteller Jackie Harris.
Marjan Wouda: sculptures in atmospheric peep-box settings
Julie Miles: characterful imagings in clay
Patricia Ramsden: theatrical installations.
Christopher Rainham: paintings, drawings and painted objects
Jacqueline Harris: stories, text and recordings.
A stunning and varied exhibition of engaging contemporary art deeply rooted in the local environment
Visitor activities and workshops included
Approximately 16 of my sculptures - with still more very small bronzes in the gallery space - feature in this exhibition in Drenthe, in Northern Holland. A beautiful large sculpture garden with wide ranging work by more than 20 artists including ceramics and jewellery. Make a day of it before the end of September!

One of these 3 will be developed further into a life size bronze sculpture, to greet people when they enter the exhibition. Which one will it be?

My last of three solo shows in beautiful gardens this spring/summer was the most magical. It really was a wonderful collaboration with Rose McMonigall who has lovingly shaped and developed these gardens. I hope the pictures speak for themselves.
