The Only Way is Wessex
The Only Way is Wessex was a group exhibition curated by Wessex Projects and displayed in the #WindowGalleries during August and September 2021.
The Only Way is Wessex featured pieces that respond to the ancient earthworks of the North Wessex Downs and its sites of continual ritual. The North Wessex Downs is an ancient area of chalk downs located across Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire. Its ridge, known as the Ridgeway, has been walked continuously since prehistoric times. Sites of ritual in the downs include stone circles, chalk drawings, standing stones and tumuli.
The show exhibited work from a range of work by local creatives, including pieces by sustainable jewellery maker “i like the way she…”, artist and stone circle maker Jonny Bayes, artist Kate Kessling, artist Mark Mindel and film production company Jackdaw.
‘The Only Way is Wessex’ was on display in the #WindowGalleries from 27th August 2021 to the 16th October 2021.
