Leith Hill Place Dorking Surrey RH5 6LY

An exploration of the materials beneath our feet will be presented at Leith Hill Place from 6-27 July (Exhibition Open Friday – Sunday). It will reveal the fascinating history of these materials and how they have shaped the Surrey Hills landscape over time. Innovative artists have immersed themselves in the landscape across the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, collecting, recording and researching in the build up to their ten projects.

They will present drawings, maquettes and sculpture. The exhibition will include the beautiful paper structures of Jane Ponsford incorporating pigments collected on her walks, a fascinating art documentary by Amanda Loomes from her residency in sand quarries and a photosynthesis piece by renowned artists Ackroyd and Harvey who are exploring the layers beneath Leith Hill itself.
