About this Event

"Imitating with the mouth the fluid voices of birds came long before men were able to sing together in melody and please the ear" Lucretius (94–55BC): De Rerum Natura

Prints by Mike Collier and music by Bennett Hogg inspired by listening to a dawn chorus in a Northumberland woodland garden—a choir of sixteen birds heard early one morning in May. Come and spend time with the artworks and get close to song- bird’s music, reinterpreted for us in this restful and thoughtful exhibition.

The exhibition continues in the foyer with a beautiful animation of Mike’s work with soundtrack by Bennett Hogg. In the café, you can hear other sound installations inspired by Mike and Bennett’s experience of the Dawn Chorus

10-4 Monday – Saturday and Market Sundays
