Made in the Marches Gallery is a new gallery in Kington which shows two monthly exhibitions of work made by local established and emerging artists and makers living and creating in the Marches of Herefordshire, Shropshire and Powys.

Currently on display at the gallery is a selection of Summer Show work from the Hereford College of Arts Artist Blacksmithing course.

August's exhibition, entitled Lazy, hazy days, will be celebrating the long, warm summery days of mid-season, especially picnics and forays into the beautiful border countryside. As a conceptual contrast, the gallery will also feature Paul Baines' fine art life-size sculpture called the Road Spill Shrine; this is Paul's end of year work from the Portfolio Course at Hereford College of Arts. Passionate about nature, Paul set himself the task of collecting rubbish from the hedges and verges around a small corner of the countryside in a six week time-window. His 'shrine' is bright, shiny and fun, but his point is the damage that thoughtlessness does to the landscape, both visually and environmentally.

Paul states: " I called the Shrine the Road Spill because the road flattened cans seemed like a form of road kill, but here there had been no accident, this had all been deliberately dumped."

The gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm and on Bank Holiday Mondays.
