Exhibitions at Honeywood Museum

Park Life Exhibition

23 April - 4 June

A contemporary exhibition showcasing the work of the artists currently at the Oaks Park Studio, on the theme of the beauty, nature and history of Oaks Park and its buildings. Including work by Neal Vaughan, Doug Shaw, Jo Sharpe, Kate Marsden, Simon Burder and more.

The artists cover many disciplines of creativity from glass, ceramics, mixed media, oil, print, and sculpture to storytelling and performance. Work will be available to purchase.

The holistic exhibition will be built from many facets, glimpses of times past, to bring local history and stories to life for the borough.

Some of the exciting work being made is highlighted here. Ingrid Barber will be looking at the characters and ghosts from the rich history of the Oaks house and she has used mixed media to depict an imaginary tea party where the Earl and his wife entertain the recent Derby winners in the drawing-room at Oaks Park.

Guest artist Neal Vaughan has developed his workshop idea into a beautifully animated horse sequence to be displayed on a loop in the gallery at Honeywood. There will be

  • Photos of 3D creatures,
  • A Spellbound sketchbook by Doug Shaw
  • Woodcuts and prints by Kate Marsden and other members of the newly created print workshop.
  • Jo Sharpe is focusing on the wild flora around the park
  • Simon Burder is exploring work about Woodmansterne Road and the fields around the Oaks Track.

Free. Drop-in exhibition.

Story Of The Oaks

23 April - 4 June

The Oaks, which stood in what is now The Oaks Park was one of the great sporting houses of Georgian England. It was here that the Earl of Derby and his friends devised the Oaks and Derby horse races which are run at Epsom each year.

The slide show explores the history of the house and the people connected with it.
