Plax Metaxu Garden Visit : Thursday 27th July

Pairadaeza, the old Persian word for an enclosed space also lends its name to the notion of the Persian garden of paradise.

In conjunction with the current Pairadaeza exhibition at White Moose a special visit to the private garden of Plaz Metaxu, Witheridge, Devon has been arranged.

Gardens are often places of beauty but also of artifice where nature is shaped by man, where many of the themes explored in the Pairadaeza exhibition are given resonance; a place where nature, art and spirituality are fused. The Plax Metaxu garden is not usually open to the public so our specially arranged visit offers a rare opportunity to see this beautiful and thought-provoking garden.

A minibus to take you to the Plax Metaxu Garden will leave White Moose, Trinity Street, Barnstaple, EX32 8HX at 1pm with the garden visit starting at 2pm.
£35 per person, to include minibus, garden tour and an afternoon tea. Numbers for the visit are restricted to 10 people, therefore early booking is advisable. For more details and to book, please call 01271 379872  or email

Artist Talk :

Marcus Lanyon at Exeter Phoenix

Wed 24 May 2017 : 5pm : £3.50* (free for Exeter College students)

Lanyon’s work focuses on the constant yet seductive ‘disquiet’ that defines our lives now, in contrast to the relative or apparent social certainties of the past. It is an exploration of the climate of social, political and personal anxiety that this engenders.

Using a range of materials for both their cultural resonance and ability to echo different stages of human technological development – such as pigment, ink, earth, cloth, clay, bronze, iron and aluminium – the work highlights our diverse, complex and evolving relationships with these key human concerns.

After graduating from the Royal College of Art, London, Lanyon was selected as one of the inaugural Saatchi Gallery & Channel 4’s 4 New Sensations. His work is included in the Zabludowicz Collection.

He is currently based in Bristol, UK, and an Associate of Spike Island.

£5 on the door 

A talk for North Devon Arts at Broomhill Art Hotel, Muddiford, Barnstaple, where Marcus will be chatting about his current solo exhibition, Age of Panic at White Moose.

If required, you can book for a 7pm pre-talk buffet at £6.95. Please contact Broomhill direct on : 01271 580262
