A mural is coming to Anglers Country Park! Join us for this community mural consultation workshop where we will explore the heritage of Anglers Country Park as a Local Nature Reserve.
Participants will be asked to think about their favourite memories and experiences of Anglers Country Park and the nature and wildlife it is home to. Artist Beth Morgan will then use these stories and memories to inspire her ideas for the final mural.
Come and share your ideas for the mural!
About Beth Morgan
Beth Morgan is an artist who is interested in the way in which she experiences the natural world around her, and her artistic responses to that experience. Walking is an important part of her practice and informs the painted practice she creates within her studio. The main sites for the walks Morgan undertakes are natural English landscapes: long stretching coastline with an abundance of thriving rockpools, baron moorlands that become transformed with a wealth of heather, and rolling hills leading to craggy rockfaces and idyllic waterfalls. She situates her practice within these natural environments, rejecting the urban and immersing herself within nature and taking in the experience.
During the walks Morgan takes, she makes notes and quick sketches within her ‘field journal’ that are then used on the return to her studio to prompt a memory or feeling. She takes great inspiration from the natural world, and this is at the heart of every painting she creates. Through Morgan’s work, she hopes to highlight the importance of the natural landscape and encourage others to look – and appreciate – the nature around them.
