Beau Viney

AUGUST 2009

Beau is to highlight my unease of the waste plastic packaging my household is left to deal with when we consume MILK such a basic and natural foodstuff. There has to be another way. The power of the super markets is disturbing.

In my opinion, how we’ve been conditioned to shop, our nations disconnection with agriculture and food production are all connected.

A stunning range of sculptured furniture

Methodist chapel

A stunning range of sculptured furniture will go display at a former Methodist chapel next week (Friday 3 December) following a unique ‘green’ collaboration between two West Devon artists.

Tree surgeon turned wood sculptor Mike Woolley from Walkhampton has created the exhibits using reclaimed wood from painter Nick Viney’s Leewood Estate near Yelverton, where her Green with NV Studio is based. Now they are to go display in an exhibition entitled ‘Out of the Woods’ at Calstock Arts, a Methodist chapel opened in 1910, which has been transformed into a contemporary community arts space by acclaimed architect Stephen Whettam. Alongside Mike’s sculptured furniture, which includes tables and sideboards fashioned from oak, beech and cypress, there will be paintings on show by Nick and fellow artist Tania Speaking, who is based in Lydford. Mike has spent the last year creating the furniture after sourcing most of his raw material during several visits to Nick’s family estate, which is home to some of the finest wooded areas on Dartmoor.

“Nick has a real passion for the environment and sustainable issues and always tries to incorporate as much recycled material into her artwork,” - Mike -
