Art Bridge Emergents
Virtual exhibition

The critical connection between humans and trees

Despite the challenges of 2020, Art Shape are thrilled to bring you this diverse and glorious virtual exhibition of painting, mixed media, drawing and installation created by artists on the Art Bridge Emergents programme, artist in residence Deb Hoy and commissioned artists.

Our partnership with Westonbirt Arboretum has proved a solace and inspiration for our artists who have presented different perspectives on the critical connection between humans and trees. The work demonstrates a deep engagement and connection with the Arboretum.

Art Shape were delighted to receive generous funding from Arts Council England to run Art Bridge Emergents: our fourth programme of creative development for artists who face disabling barriers and wish to develop or progress their artistic career.
