Deborah Hudson

Deborah is a contemporary artist who works in 3D, draws, paints and prints.  She has been interested in the Arts all her life and her work draws on this historical record as well as the world around her. She loves to explore with texture and colour often being playful and humorous. The large-scale woodblock print below ‘A Visible Strand’ is part of a collaborative body of work being undertaken by a small group of artists. She says “I’m told my images often have a sense of peace and restfulness”. Deborah is excited to be showing her work at Lanacre Barn and looks forward to meeting you and having a conversation about what inspires her and how it’s reflected in her work.

Molly Rasch 

Molly works as a physiotherapy assistant at Salisbury District Hospital in a wood workshop with individuals whom have undergone severe hand trauma/surgery.                       Patients use tools and machinery to regain stamina, strength and dexterity as a form of functional rehabilitation.                                                                                                                Molly saw the power of art, creativity and the joys of working with wood in enabling patients to recover both mentally and physically from their injuries. This inspired her to take up wood art as a personal hobby.  She likes to choose her wood carefully, often using her chainsaw to extract pieces from already felled or fallen trees, then spends time preparing the wood and planning how best to use the pieces in her art.                              The results are beautiful in their simplicity, with the power of the wood shining through the original images she so thoughtfully uses.

There will be plenty to see and choose from for that special present, or just come along and feast your eyes and enjoy the atmosphere. This is a show to suit all ages, all pockets and all wall sizes!   It will also include giclee prints and Christmas cards.

Jo looks forward to welcoming you, everyone is welcome and there will be refreshments on offer.

Directions:  for those of you who have never been before, Sat Navs do bring you right to the farm, BUT, if approaching from the north your sat nav will bring you through a ford which is normally perfectly passable. But, in times of torrential rains it can become impassable! There are two alternative approaches, both explained below.

From the Tiverton to Barnstaple link road : (20 minutes max) Turn off to North Molton, continue straight, through N.Molton, up, up to Exmoor, after 15 minutes (from linkroad) you will pass the Sportsmans Inn on your left, 100 yds later bear left signposted Landacre. Follow on, over cattle grid, down to bridge, over the river and half way up the other side you will come to farm buildings. Turn in on the right and follow signs.

From Exford : (7 minutes) Go over the bridge, (leaving The White Horse Inn on your right behind you) and immediately turn left, continue up the hill to the crossroads, go straight over and down to the ford. (If it has rains substantially there is a way round to avoid) Through the ford, up the other side, across the moor and start going down hill, you will get to farm buildings and here you turn in on the left and follow the signs.

From Exford avoiding the ford : (first part same as above)….. up the hill to the crossroads, then turn right and after 200 yds a tiny turning to the left, with no signpost, turn left down this single track tarmac road, past a farmyard and bear left at small junction, continue on for half a mile, eventually up a very steep hill and turn sharp right at the top, continue up the hill, over the cattlegrid across the moor and down the hill where the farmyard is on your left, turn in and follow signs to parking.

From Withypool avoiding the ford: (7 minutes) Go over the bridge, leaving the shop and tea rooms behind you, after 50yds turn right, continue straight for approx two miles up and over the moor. You will come to a turning to the right signposted Landacre, turn right. Continue straight down to the river, over the bridge, and half way up the other side to farm buildings, turn in on the right and follow signs to parking.

  1. Love coming over the moors, whatever the weather to the excitement of the varied art exhibitions in the center of Exmoor.

    Do hope we can make it this time – looks like interesting exhibitors –

    NHS permitting

  2. I very much like the picture you feature by Louis Down. It’s dark but it has such a feeling of an underwater mystery. Louis has obviously inherited his mother’s significant artistic talent.
