THE isolation shared during lockdown has been captured in a recent art project.

Somerset Reacquainted is an exhibition which will include images, text, digital work, objects, sketches and original artworks produced during lockdown.

Sara Dudman, artist, and Zoe Li, artistic development manager at Somerset Art Works, organised the project, asking artists to refocus their practice by engaging with nature, locality and community.

More than 60 artists will take part in the display at Somerset Rural Life Museum which opens on September 19.

“Artists were invited to explore the rhythms of their daily life and surroundings, responding in ways which suggested new engagement with familiar places and activities,” said a spokesperson for Somerset Art Works.

“The artworks resulting from this project can be viewed as a time-capsule in which feelings and experiences are captured and preserved, but also as a way to allow anyone to share the same events.”
