Ash Tree Stream art exhibition

3rd November 2020 @ 11:00 am - 14th November 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Exhibition open Tues – Sat 11am – 4pm

Ash Tree Stream is a one-year visual arts project led by artist James Aldridge, in partnership with Andover Trees United and CAS (Chapel Arts Studios) and five schools in Andover. Children and staff used visual arts processes outside of the classroom to learn about Ash trees and Ash dieback disease within the context of local cultural heritage and climate change. Funding from Arts Council England and CAS enabled James to develop a new body of work which included research into Ash trees and Ash Die-Back disease, as well as ways of working with schools/communities. The resulting exhibition of artwork and project documentation will take place at CAS in St Mary’s Cemetery, central Andover from 3 – 14 November 2020, a stone’s throw from the town’s namesake. (Andover is thought to get its name from ‘‘on dubr’ meaning Ash Tree Stream.)

CAS is also running online events to share the learnings from this project with the wider public, teachers, parents, artists,  environmentalists and anyone interested in exploring art in environmental education:
