How have artists observed and worked within the landscape? What can their images reveal about our changing ecology?
This seminar will bring together talks from contemporary artists, curators and ecologists, and will take place in the heart of Constable Country, at Flatford in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). There will be an opportunity to explore the iconic locations of John Constable’s artworks.
