Red Dot present Hamptonne, 2010

Group exhibition and event of art, poetry and music.
Hamptonne Country Life museum, Jersey
Friday 28th May 2010 – Monday 31st May 2010

19 local visual artists will take over Hamptonne Country Farm in order to showcase a contemporary fine art event. The aim is to provide a relaxed but stimulating exhibition for the public. The red dot group wants to show how contemporary art can work within an historic setting. The exhibits will be site specific and the artwork will interplay with the nature of the museum. A unique mix of both well known, up and coming artists and one student will be exhibiting work from painting, photography, drawing and installations to graphic design, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, film, sculpture and performance.

Not only a contemporary art exhibition, Hamptonne will also be host to a variety of events from talented poets, artist talks and some fantastic live music such as Jersey Bob and his mates performing in the legendary Folk Buzz. Picnics are also greatly encouraged; so you can come along, enjoy the beautiful setting and see how the work on show interacts with the space.

Unfortunately due to funding Hamptonne Country Farm is not going to open as a visitor attraction in 2010, but will be continuing to host events. So this really is a rare opportunity not only to visit Hamptonne, but also to see this space in a different light with something, which has never been done before. The event has been kindly sponsored by Ernst and Young and the Jersey Arts Trust.
