Ripple Effect - Illustrating nature

The Ripple Effect 

Drawing inspiration from the River Avon – it’s past, present and it’s future, a special exhibition is taking place in Salisbury. Marking the end of a wellbeing project run by Wessex Archaeology, artist James Aldridge and the Environment Agency, come along to the Ripple Effect exhibition.

Friday 3 November to Saturday 16 December 2023
The Young Gallery, Salisbury Library, Market Walk, Salisbury, SP1 1BL
Free admission

Structured around the seasons and tracing the phases of the Salisbury River Park flood alleviation scheme, the exhibition features participants’ work inspired during the two-year creative art, archaeology and ecology project. Reflect on our relationship with the river, learn more about the wildlife on our doorstep and experience the essence of the project captured in a bespoke film.

Feeling inspired? You can get involved too by taking away and trying our river themed activity suggestions.
