Our exhibition, ‘Pioneer‘, inspired by the life of 19th-century political and social campaigner Emily Massingberd is now open in Orchard Gallery at Gunby Estate Hall and Gardens. We have met some amazing people during the course of the project and feel really luck to be able to share in telling the story of this remarkable woman. The show is open until 31 August 2018.
We are delighted to have received funding from the National Lottery via Arts Council England for our latest collaborative project, ‘Us, A Gunby Estate Domesday’, with Michael Sanders and the National Trust at Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens.
During spring and summer 2017 artist Michael Sanders, supported by CommonAs, will work with the members of 28 households living in tenanted properties in the grounds of Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens, to create a modern day ‘Domesday’, or landscape survey, of the estate, revealing the untold stories of the estate cottages, working farms, park and woodland. Research for the project will include gathering audio testimony from tenants and creating photographic portraits. It will culminate in an installation and exhibition in the Orchard Gallery at Gunby Hall.
