Blackwell Spring Exhibition

Blackwell arts and crafts house has a new exhibition this spring, which runs until the 18th of June. Emerging artists Griet Beyaert and Paul Miller present The Light Within, which combines the modern medium of digital technology with the age old art of glass making. Touted as an immersive response to Blackwell, the exhibition features a multi-layered video projection mapped onto sculpted glass works and accompanied by a soundscape. Beyond the Oliver Thompson gallery housing this installation the curious and attentive may find freeform sculptural glass works by Beyaert. These are dotted around the gracefully carved wooden interior and stained glass windows that echo Blackwell’s setting amongst the Lakeland fells with its magnificent view of the lake. The light reflected from these landscape features, so integral to the design of Blackwell yet outwith the house, is brought inside by this exhibition. Entry to the exhibition is included in the admission charge to the house itself.
