The sun came out and all the artists and guests involved in the 'Impressions' Exhibition at the Jane Austen House Museum, in Chawton, were able to have the private view both inside and out. The cottage garden was in flower and it was a really wonderful evening. All the work had been thoughtfully curated by Sophie Cunningham Dawe, being made in response to the site and therefore placed as 'interventions' around the property, both inside and outside. Alex Jones has made delicate wood carvings which complement Susan Wood's soundscapes and are exhibited in the museums' grounds. Alex Hoare has created site-specific glassworks, while Chirs Riisager, Sophie Cunningham-Dawe, Kate Dicker and myself made paper based works. The exhibition runs until the end of September with opening times to be found on the museum site.
