Olympic exhibition at Hertfordshire farm

AN OLYMPIC exhibition continues its UK tour at a village farm.

Race Into Time, a free exhibition by artists Stephen Vince and Peter Rodulfo launched in April and will visit Church Farm in Ardeley on Saturday, June 9, from 11am to 6pm.

It will include paintings and sculptures showing the artists’ own take on the London 2012 Olympics, as well as inviting others to express theirs.

Writer and biologist Colin Tudge will host the forum in the farm theatre, with live discussions and film shows adding to the debates provoked by the sporting event, while there will also be a sculpture trail through the farm.

A percentage of all work sold will go to causes which represent those who aren’t represented at the Olympic Games, including the Campaign for Real Farming and the Bhopal Medical Appeal.

“The Olympics coming to London is an ideal opportunity for our country to reassess our common values and basic identity,” said Stephen Vince.

“We feel that’s better done on a traditional Hertfordshire farm than on a re-landscaped de-populated patch of real estate in what was once the heart of East London.

“Race Into Time will be touring the country up to and throughout the Olympics. The various locations we’re visiting are just as important as the work we’re exhibiting. We want to stimulate some real thought about who we are, where we’re going, and whether we’re living up to the true and ancient spirit of the Olympic ideals.”

During the evening there will also be a big bonfire and impromptu music. For those wishing to camp it is �10 for adults, �8 for children and �2 for under-twos, or free for farm box members and musicians.
