A new Art Trail of sounds and sculpture exploring the special landscape and history at the Fenn’s, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses National Nature Reserve on the Anglo-Welsh border near Whitchurch, Shropshire, UK will be launching on 3rd July 2021. The Art Trail will continue through Summer to the end of October 2021.

Two internationally significant wetlands are connected by bringing sounds from New South Wales, Australia into the Mosses landscape. The soundscapes edited by Andrew Howe (UK) and Kim V. Goldsmith (AUS) feature recordings of wildlife, water and trees, poetry, history and memories of life on and around the peatbog. The piece “I am Walking” by Howe/Goldsmith explores the personal and collective experience of walking across the respective landscapes of the Mosses and Marshes.

Artists Elizabeth Turner and Keith Ashford have produced a series of waymarking sculptures which look at measuring tools and their connection with the Mosses landscape.

Participating artists Keith Ashford, Liz Turner and Andrew Howe will be on the trail on Saturday 3rd July 11am to 3pm for you to meet and chat about the artworks.

The Art Trail is part of the Mosses and Marshes art project led by Andrew Howe and Kim V. Goldsmith, supported by National Lottery funding from Arts Council England. Many thanks also to Natural England, Shropshire Wildlife Trust and for their assistance; and to Stephen Barlow for ecological advice and contributing bird recordings.
