David Nash at CCA NW and Dartington

This Easter CCANW (Centre for the Contemporary Arts and the Natural World) will launch an exhibition of the work of the sculptor David Nash, and on Thursday 17 February at 9pm there will be an opportunity to see an hour-long documentary on BBC4 on his work.

David is Britain’s most important contemporary sculptor in wood, a material in which he has worked for over 40 years, and at the core of his work is a profound knowledge of trees. The exhibition, selected from his current retrospective at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, forms part of our Tree Culture programme which contributes to the UN International Year of Forests. David will also be giving a talk hosted by Dartmoor Arts and a major sculpture will be shown in the gardens of Dartington Hall. The exhibition is supported by a grant from the Henry Moore Foundation.

Anyone guess where the scultpure might be going in the grounds……
