Ancient woodlands, a mysterious picturesque valley, an intimate walled garden and a Gothic Castle are the setting for Tell it to the Trees, a year long exhibition of contemporary sculptural installations and paintings at the National Trust’s Croft Castle in Herefordshire, from July 2009.
Nine artists have been invited to make or show work that is inspired by man’s relationship to trees. They are Mariele Neudecker, Philippa Lawrence, Brass Art, Laura Ford, Juneau / projects and Clare Woods.
Brass Art exhibited: 'Witness Tree', 'To Suspend the Breath' and 'Rooted and Established'.
The works are installed in the Croft parkland, the walled garden, the early 19th century stables and the Castle itself - a highly romantic building constructed in the early 17th Century in medieval revival style, Croft lies on a beautiful hillside on the Welsh border, where ancient woodland and magnificent beech woods meet modern forestry plantations and an Iron Age hill-fort.
