ART FARM 2006

Jan O'Highway's work tracked the changes over the seasons. Her approach - combining photography, journals, digital scans and short movies - was a visually driven response to the environment, concerned with abstraction and pattern, and also an observation of artists at work. 'I enjoy documenting the everyday.'

The Art Farm Project is an artist led event originating in 2003 from an idea of sculptor Suzanne Redstone, and her husband Peter Redstone, owners of Middle Rocombe Farm in Devon. AFP is a unique experience in the art world, and has attracted over 10,000 visitors, receiving national and international media attention. It has also been of benefit to the wider artistic community, enabling networking, development of skills and showcasing work for sale.

AFP 2006 was selected by Louise Short and Andrew Cross, two internationally acclaimed artists and curators who have challenged many of the artists to work outside their usual field, in different and sometimes unfamiliar media. Artists and volunteers transformed the now redundant farm buildings into exhibition spaces and performance areas, turned fields into sculpture parks and created a substantial body of work especially for the event.

The third Art Farm Project was held in June 2006, more information can be found on the website.
