BluehouseArt has now gathered quite a portfolio of exhibitions and out'stallations in association with several organisations and charities working in conservation, in Great Britain and Europe, and continues to work on new projects to promote further awareness of environmental issues with the wolf as a symbol for those issues.

WOBURN SAFARI PARK

'Where Wolf Met Bear' (to be completed Summer 2007).

This ambitious project runs in conjunction with a 2year MA Photography research degree; as we transform the space (an under-used indoor picnic area) to create an educational wolf-related installation combining imagery and stories relating to Canadian wolves and bears and the Rocky Mountain environment, the Iberian Wolf of Northern Spain, myths from the Scottish Isles and current issues in the Polish wilderness.

DRUIDSTONE ART PARK 2005

Druidstone, Blean, Kent, provides hands-on educational opportunities for visitors and families to enjoy the magical experience of the ancient woodlands and its wildlife.

 

 

RESIDENTIAL ART AT WILDWOOD

2001 - 2004

This project began as a study of a family of European wolves and a season of public talks about that study at the park; progressed to an out'stallation along the woodland trail, several public exhibits in the Community linked to Bluehouse's regeneration ethos, invitations to participate in The Canterbury Festival, several Herne Bay festivals, The Whitstable Oyster Festival, and The Broadstair's Folk Festival, a series of postcards and imagery for sale to raise funds for Wildwood in its earlier days - prior to establishing itself as a charity and in support of important small mammal conservation and breeding programmes that were happening at the time, a weekend of public art, another - even bigger - out'stallation and an evening of picnic theatre and the first performance of 'Wolven Tales', and the production of wolf howl greeting cards.
