Complimenting Angie's creative printmaking, we produced a concertina format invite to showcase Angie's striking images mixed with inspirational key lines from Char's poetry. As we live within the Watershed Landscape boundary it was a pleasure to get involved with such a worthwhile initiative - not only were we inspired by the artists, we also had the opportunity to take a deeper look into the fascinating landscape on our doorstep that we all too often take for granted.
When Out of the Blue were asked to create the marketing, design and show graphics to promote this highly creative exhibition we were delighted to help. Working with two exceptionally talented Watershed Landscape artists in residence: Char March the multi-award-winning poet, playwright and fiction writer, and Hebden Bridge artist and printmaker Angie Rogers our role was made easy by the inspiring material that we had to work with.
Char had worked tirelessly inspiring people to get out and active in the uplands and to capture their experiences in a creative way, this enabled a fabulous visual display of panels with each writers individual message displayed in typographic form. Chars own work was also designed to be creatively displayed across a massive banner, which looked impressive in the gallery with a water effect light display rippling across the type.
The South Pennine uplands are remote, wild and exhilarating. A place for reflection, relaxation and inspiration this rugged landscape has inspired artists and writers over generations from the Brontës to Ted Hughes; from Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth to Joseph Pighills, and still continues to inspire artists today. Watershed Landscape is a programme designed to enhance and conserve the South Pennine landscape and its heritage by researching and telling the fascinating stories of the moor and creating new ones to inspire future generations.
