Art commemorates Falklands anniversary
PUBLISHED: 14:00 28 January 2012
AN EXHIBITION marking the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War will be held at Weston’s Helicopter Museum.
The exhibition, by West Country artist Rachael Lomas and entitled Inscape Landscape, will reflect the islands’ environment and how it affected the course of the conflict.
The exhibition, which starts on February 2 and will run for 26 weeks, contains pen and ink drawings, cut shapes and use of shadow imagery.
Rachael said: “The terrain is visually harsh, foreboding and somewhat unnerving and I think that serves as a very powerful metaphor for what the troops had to endure both physically and mentally during the campaign.”
The exhibition will run alongside a factual display detailing the roles played by helicopters during the 1982 war which has been created by museum volunteers and members of the North Somerset Modelling Society.
Usual museum admission applies, but there is no extra charge for the exhibition.
