On Saturday 1st March the Home Lad Home exhibition will open to the public at St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery in Lymington. The exhibition includes an installation exploring the relationship between men and horses, Hampshire and the front, that I was commissioned to research and create by St Barbe:

Home Lad, Home follows horses from peacetime occupations to the Remount Depots and active service, as depicted in paintings by Lucy Kemp-Welch, Cecil Aldin, Lionel Edwards, Algernon Talmage, Lady Butler and Edwin Noble. It reveals the contribution of horses to the war effort in a remarkable and moving story.

Young artists at Priestlands School are creating their own responses to the themes of the exhibition and the National Theatre’s production of War Horse, which is coming to the Mayflower Theatre. The students’ work will be included within the exhibition, alongside newly commissioned pieces by resident artist James Aldridge. To find out more follow the project at:
