Introducing our collaborative artists who creatively provide inspiration for the festival
Pictures and words, mostly rooted in the local landscape, the people and wildlife. Lifelong engagement with music and the musicians who create it has led to this local creative collaboration with the Festival and with Ayriel Classical. We aim to join strong photographic imagery with the music and the spirit of the land itself, to make something new and, we hope, inspiring.
For the first eight years the festival commissioned a painting to depict our churches in context to the landscape, beautifully presented by artist Carol Tyler and featuring on the covers of the brochures (see Past Festivals). As we are now drawing to the end of these venue portraits, we are now moving over to photography in order to focus on the natural landscape around us.
Over the years Frank has been documenting the musicians and audiences through film and photography whilst capturing the churches for our website and brochures (see Past Festivals for previous galleries). As part of the team Frank continues to convey the ambience of our festival.
