South Hill Park invites members of the Reading Guild of Artists to present new work in response to the concept 'a sense of space'; from paintings, prints and textiles to ceramics, sculptures and installations, the artwork is brought together by this common theme.
Artists have always drawn inspiration from the world about them, the spaces in which they find themselves or from where they work, live and have their being. They are also used to working in isolation, but recent times may have presented more time in which to appreciate and respond to their surroundings in a new way.
"Sense of Space" encourages the viewer to look, to see, to connect in a deeper way with their own memories, experiences and feelings inspired by the world about them.

The Wittenham Clumps were a major source of inspiration for Paul Nash (1889-1946), one of the finest British artists of the 20th century. The talk explores Nash's unique and enduring connection with this landscape, showing his Wittenham Clumps work alongside his war art, surrealism, illustration, photography and design.
Christopher Baines runs the Paul Nash and the Wittenham Clumps website with artist Anna Dillon. He regularly lectures on Nash and has been interviewed about him for the BBC TV programmes Countryfile and Andrew Graham Dixon's Paul Nash: The Ghosts of War.
