"Christmas at Highcliffe Castle: A contemporary art and crafts event"
2000-12-08 until 2000-12-23
Highcliffe Castle, Nanassy Productions
Christchurch, , UK United Kingdom

Highcliffe Castle, with its breathtaking views of the Isle of Wight, and gardens which echo an earlier landscape designed by 'Capability' Brown, will provide an impressive setting for an innovative Christmas Art Event. Grade 1 listed the castle contains much medieval stonework and is in itself a work of art. This event aims to raise awareness of the castles' potential as well as promoting some of Britain's creative energies.

Highcliffe Castle in Dorset and its' association with the arts; through Lady Waterford and Ruskin, stretching back to the 1830's was almost destroyed by fire in the 1960's. The castle was repaired by Christchurch Borough Council; English Heritage and the Heritage Lottery Fund throughout the 1990's in a conservation project undertook to save the building. It has since become a thriving visitor attraction, offering functions and exhibitions, with a continuing restoration programme. This contemporary exhibition will reveal an alternative facet of Highcliffe Castle previously unexplored.

Nanassy Productions, known for producing inspirational events in unusual locations, will be putting together the exhibition with the aim of contrasting the history of the castle against 21st century art and design.

This diverse collection of work by established artists as well as new designers and makers will include all forms of multimedia; audio, light, digital technology and mixed media with paintings, photography, metal-work, sculpture, ceramics, lighting, jewellery, furniture and much more. All artists are selected for the quality of work which will be shown in a way to inspire visitors and evoke ideas for use in their own home and gardens. Each piece of work is for sale. Details on every artist will be available.

Nanassy Productions has an excellent reputation for unusual art events, says Manda Graham, events officer at Highcliffe Castle, And I believe that this will be one of the most unique backdrops they have worked with.

The event will open with a preview on Friday 8th December 2000 and continue to run until the 23 rd.

Entrance: £1.50 Children free.
