ERTF members’ exhibition: 6th – 19th May 2022

Changing Earth - A Collaborative Exhibition with RHS Hyde Hall, Essex

6th - 19th May 2022

.We are delighted to be working with the  Royal Horticultural Society’s Hyde Hall Gardens for our 2022 members’ exhibition.  A link to the Hyde Hall website can be found here.  

The title of the exhibition is Changing Earth.  This theme is a collaboration between ERTF and RHS Hyde Hall inspired by the research, findings and recommendations contained in the RHS report ‘Gardening in a Changing Climate’.  This RHS report,  together with audio clips on the topic, are therefore essential preparation for the exhibition and interpretation of the collaborative theme.  They can be found here.

This will be a substantial show in Hyde Hall’s large exhibition space at a time of year when the gardens are well-visited.  There will be plenty of space for both 2D and 3D work; the size of individual pieces will not be an issue.

Exhibition preparation

To help members prepare, it was originally planned that there would be one or more study days at Hyde Hall. It was not possible to schedule these due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

HOWEVER, in their place we prepared an introductory video (see below) to set the scene and encourage members to start working on their pieces.   PLEASE NOTE THAT THE VIDEO REFERS TO THE ORIGINAL EXHIBITION DATES IN JUNE 2022: THE REVISED DATES IN MAY 2022 ARE ABOVE

An informal ERTF visit to Hyde Hall is planned for Monday 11th October 2021 when one of our members (Margaret Talbot) will be part of another exhibition at the venue.  In the meantime, Hyde Hall Gardens are currently open (subject to booking) and members are encouraged to arrange their own visits
