Artists Ian Nesbitt and Ruth Levene are putting on the Precarious Landscape exhibition with In Certain Places, a Preston-based art programme. 

The community exhibition will take place in the week of 14 May. It will focus on how the outskirts of Preston and the landscapes around the city are changing, or have changed in the past.

A statement from In Certain Places said, “Submissions should record in some way parts of the local environment that are changing.

“It could be a view from your window that will soon change, a bird species you don’t see any more, a road that was built in your lifetime, some facts about your local neighbourhood, or the wider Preston area.

“It doesn’t have to be big or ‘important’, neither does it have to be ‘a fantastic work of art’. In fact the more diverse the better, so don’t be shy!”

Submissions should be taken to The Harris Museum and Art Gallery cafe on Saturday 5 May between 10am and 4pm. They might be in the form of drawings, paintings, objects, artefacts, newspaper cuttings, voice recordings or interviews.

Each entry should include 50 words about what is being submitted and why. Anyone thinking of submitting a particularly large or valuable piece should get in touch first. 

For more information contact Ian and Ruth at info@iannesbitt.co.uk or ring the In Certain Places office on 01772 893204.
