Release into the Landscape Exhibition 11-13 December 2020
The Alston Landscape Art Town Initiative welcomes submissions from participants in our Release into the Landscape Exhibition launched in August to support our community as it copes with the challenges of Covid-19. Our programme has includes online videos (www.alati.org.uk), a series of talks and guides walks in preparation for the December exhibition at the Alston House Hotel. We also welcome contributions from artists and photographers who were unable to join any of our events but want to exhibit their work. Our thanks to the Alston House Hotel for supporting us throughout.
The Alston Landscape Art Town Initiative (ALATI) was set up last winter to promote Alston Moor’s landscape widely. Its board of trustees includes two artists and three landscape photographers. Its goal is to celebrate Alston Moor’s landscapes, to attract visitors year-round to enjoy courses, art trips and exhibitions and to support local artists and photographers. We benefit from support from the Alston Moor Partnership’s Community Fund.
