A GROUP of Tynedale creatives have collaborated in a new exhibition which celebrates all things Spring.

The Guardian ‘Country Diary’ columnist Susie White, actor and founder of Demiparadise Productions Stephen Tomlin and artist Kim Lewis have launched a new exhibition at Robinson-Gay Gallery in Hexham, inspired by Spring and all the natural wonders which it brings to the garden.

Opening the exhibition on April 27 with a talk on her years of writing about nature, and the writers who have helped inspire and guide here, Susie will a selection of her Guardian columns, with diary entries co-read by Stephen.

Susie will also discuss her most recent piece of writing, which charts a year in nature through the medium of leporella, a folded sketch book, which will be on show throughout the exhibition.

Throughout the passage of a year, the leporella follows how nature vastly changes over the four seasons – from the first snowdrops, to the curling autumn leaves, and the blowing seeds from a dandelion clock.

Nature inspired books, prints, drawings, ceramics and textiles from artists such as Jo Westgate, Sue Dunne, Rachel Phillimore, Jo Bourne, Willa Story, Sue Malkin, Cathy Duncan, Cat Moore, Shona Branigan, Adele Burdon, Karen Melvin and Claudia Sacher will also be on offer to the public.

The exhibition will run from April 27 to May 27.
