1st Green Landscape Delivered
COVID-19 has not inhibited the arrival of the 1st green landscape by Zoe Miller that will make up the Cradley Heath Green Landscapes project funded through a grant from Arts Council England. Project lead Martyn Harris challenged Zoe to create a drawing using her style of pointillism but focusing on the ornate dragon design bench seating found within grounds and surrounding parklands of Haden Hill House.
The finish picture by Zoe showcases the dragon benches set amid the formal floral gardens of the Haden Hill Estate. Zoe said, "When I applied to take part in the landscapes project I knew it would be a challenge to produce a work that would be good enough compared to all the other landscapes produced by other artists. But, I had great fun exploring the park and deciding what benches to include to complete the brief set by Martyn. Being the first to hand in my work has put me in a position where everything that follows will be compared to my work. I don't know whether that's good or bad but taking part was a thrill and i can't wait to see what everyone else has produced once 'lockdown' through coronavirus is over."
Martrin Harris for MFAA said, "I encourage everyone to have a go at taking part in the green landscapes project. Coronavirus has hindered the way in which the project is progressing but never-the-less it has not stopped the project. I encourage everyone to still take part by visiting the green landscapes of Cradley Heath and creating a landscape picture
