From 8th to 17th September 2017, top Cumbrian Arts Festival C-Art returns.
Artist Sarah Taylor’s project has been selected to be part of the inventive “Art in Extraordinary Places” programme, which brings contemporary art to extraordinary and unusual locations throughout Cumbria. It will transform the landscape that runs alongside the Laal Ratty Steam train in the Eskdale valley (R&ER) into an outdoor exhibition space for the duration of C-Art festival. From your seat on the train, experience the unexpected delight of viewing contemporary wildlife paintings hanging in their natural habitat, as you journey up the valley.
All travellers will receive an eye-spy style leaflet to accompany the outdoor gallery, with an introduction to the characters in the paintings and a short story about each one.
There is a crowdfunding link for this event. The activity is offered at no extra charge to R&ER ticket holders.
