Warwickshire Baroque
Sat 22 Jan, 12pm, & 2pm

We are delighted to welcome the Warwickshire Baroque to our Chapel on the 22nd January at 12pm & 2pm for a bespoke program of music selected in response to our current exhibitions.

Warwickshire Baroque is a group of musicians and solo singers who enjoy bringing to life music from 1650-1750 by exploring the instruments and playing styles used in this period. They are noted for exploring themes in their concerts and putting the music in a historical and social context. They enjoy this communicating with their audiences and presenting a mixture well-known favourites with some lesser known but equally attractive pieces.

Sarah Davis

In 2012 I graduated from Chelsea college of art with a BA in Fine art. I enjoy the dialogue between traditional craft and contemporary art which led me to return to education in 2015 to study wood carving and gilding at the City & Guilds of London Art school.

As well as carving I use a wide range of hands-on sculptural techniques to explore the cyclical nature of recovery and renewal. The shedding of snake skin, the hatching of eggs and the short life of the octopus are all cycles that exist within nature. I use these narrative tools as a way to think about how we can navigate our own relationship with pain, healing and mortality.
