Welcome to Green Hill Arts
Green Hill is an award-winning dedicated arts and history venue on the edge of Dartmoor.
Moretonhampstead Development Trust opened the doors to Green Hill for the first time on Saturday 10 December 2011 to a stunning transformation of the old school building into an extensive, mixed-use community resource. The attractive Victorian schoolhouse now incorporates a contemporary art gallery also selling arts and crafts in the foyer, heritage displays and archive, a number of purpose-built artist’s studios, a large dedicated youth centre and offices.
Green Hill attracts a diverse audience to enjoy a programme that nourishes the arts and crafts community of Dartmoor and encourages visitors from far and wide to engage in contemporary visual art. Come and visit and see for yourself.
A remarkable new exhibition which takes traditional textiles, skills and materials and uses them to make works of power and poignancy. This exhibition is the work of three textile artists; Christina Priddle, Jean Roberts and Lillian McKelvie. They explore associations of fabric, materials and threads in a fascinating exhibition that stretches how we perceive this material. All three artists use thread, yarn and tactile materials with powerful emotional associations to make poignant, disturbing and beautiful works of art. For more information please go to the exhibition pages.
We have some exciting exhibitions coming up including 'Widdershins - Moorland Mythic Arts' with renowned mythic artists; 'Making Good' with visiting curator Sian Bonnell; and 'Gathering Silence' with three artists who have been visiting Moretonhampstead to produce work in silence responding to the landscape. Browse our pages to see what's on and add your contact details to receive our email newsletter so you don't miss out.
