Inspired by the Oaks - Scenery Stroll at Chatelherault
Part of the Framing the Landscape series of events
Join CAVLP Heritage in framing the Landscape on 6 Saturdays from February 11th to March 18th. Framing the Landscape invites participants to experience the landscape in a new way and learn about the contributions of a selection of Local Landscape Heroes. These series of FREE outdoor events will take a look at figures that have been inspired by the landscape or have made an impact on it in some way – through the use of art, literature and old photographs.
Join us at Chatelherault and explore the artwork inspired by the Avon Water and Cadzow Oaks. Learn about the painters who were inspired by the natural beauty of the Avon Valley landscape. Explore the lives and influences of the artists and what brought them to this area of natural beauty in the first place. Examine the depictions of people living and working in the Cadzow forest – how was the landscape used in past centuries? What other information about the past can we learn from art?
Meet CAVLP Heritage at 2pm on Saturday, 11th of February at the Chatelherault Visitor’s Centre to take part!
