Step in Stone


East Mendips


Tel: 01749 880394

step in stone is a collaborative, multi-stranded art trail around 3 disused and working quarries in the East Mendips, illuminating these spectacular, hidden landscapes while exploring Somerset’s heritage and beauty.  Fourteen local and international artists, all with connections to South West England, have created a series of site-specific, temporary artworks for a curated trail in response to the nature of quarries and their place in the cultural and industrial heritage of the region. Contemporary sculpture, land art, photography, textiles, painting, drawing, sound, spatial poetry and printmaking has been installed within these environments, aiming to surprise, delight, challenge, fascinate and inform.


Black Swan Arts, Frome Museum and Somerset Earth Science Centre will also host indoor exhibitions by the artists culminating in the finale during Somerset Arts Weeks Festival 3-18th October.


Throughout August and October there are a variety of workshops, performances, walks and talks with the artists.
