I have a new exhibition which opens shortly. It's called 'Shap Shape' and is a joint exhibition with my good friends Colin Reynolds - an excellent dark room photographer and Geoff Cox who is a great poet. It all kicks off at Brockhole on 3rd November and continues for two months.
"Shap Shape is a new touring exhibition by Printmaker Jamie Barnes, Photographer Colin Reynolds and Poet Geoff Cox. The show seeks to explore and depict the man-made structures on and around Shap Summit. Everything from stone circles to lime kilns and even cement factories. The Cumbrian based artists believe that Shap is an area of Cumbria which is often overlooked but is full of aesthetic interest and history. The artists have explored individual themes based on man-made structures and the tracks and traces left by previous generations. These marks tell the story of the inhabitants who have lived and made their living in this rugged environment."
'Shap Shape' continues until 3th Jan 2020.
