Studio 3 Gallery - 'The Ash Archive'

'The Ash Archive' examines the human relationship with the ash tree and woodlands. Reflecting on the uncertain future of the ash tree, the exhibition brings together works by artists, designers and local makers which explore our dynamic and complex relationship with the life and death of the natural world. 'The Ash Archive' includes works by artists Ackroyd & Harvey, Colin Booth, Adam Chodzko, Sebastian Cox, French & Mottershead, Magz Hall, Max Lamb, David Nash (in collaboration with Common Ground), Autumn Richardson & Richard Skelton and Sheaf + Barley and a collection of objects made from ash wood from Rob Penn's book "The man who made things out of trees".

'The Ash Archive' will grow over the course of the exhibition and we are inviting the public to make contributions of ash objects to the archive. 'The Ash Archive' is a collaboration between the University of Kent and The Ash Project. The Ash Project is an urgent cultural response to this devastating loss of one of our most important species of tree.
