Join us for our re-opening event, and launch of re:rural - four contemporary artists un-learn and re-imagine the rural on Friday 11 September from 6.30pm 

Myamosee River Tamarind, Annalee Davis Wild Plant Series 2015


Just a week to go until we re-open our gallery doors for the launch of re:rural - four contemporary artists un-learn and re-imagine the rural. Join us at 6.30pm for a pre-show drink at Haarlem Artspace with our botanical gin bar, a fire-pit to warm your toes and wood fired pizzas to sate your appetites! Let us know you are coming and book in here.

Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, Haarlem Artspace has brought together four artists on their quest to re-imagine land and landscapes, from a guided meditation through the human body and down to the underworld of living soil, to the drawing of botanical plants on plantation ledgers, and the recreation of potato lazy beds. In two parts, the exhibition features drawings and sculpture by artist Annalee Davis for re:wilding, a solo show inside and outside the gallery space. Then Haarlem Periodical will be live online from 11 September featuring artists Deirdre O’Mahony, Feral Practice, Pauline Woolley and Annalee Davis presenting visual work as well as sound, moving image, and text works for re:rural.

At 8pm the Wirksworth Festival film about Wirksworth artists, made by studio holder, Gavin Repton and the following Northern Light Cinema outdoor screening is now sold out, but you can still come with plenty of time to see the show at Haarlem, eat pizza and have a drink from the gin bar or the Feather Star. Bring warm clothing, and your own glass if you can.
