…up here on the Bulwarks, mist and fog conceals the distance, making the wood unusually silent and secretive – not so long ago, a soft green light filled this space – now grey has taken over, slashed by spear-like splashes of gold – today’s mists mark the seasonal change…welcome the first real day of winter –

About Walking The Land

Walking The Land connect art, landscape and community, with the landscape and walking providing the catalyst for their creative activities. Based in the Gloucestershire countryside, Walking the Land comprises three lead artists, Richard Keating, Tom Keating and Kel Portman. Each share a passion for the landscape, using artworks to bring landscape and environmental issues to a wider public audience. As painters, sculptors, photographers, videographers, curators, academics and educators we produce work which refers to specific places, localities and environments, combining art and walking.

Associated artists play an important and active role in Walking The Land’s practise – they are fully engaged with the choice of issues and subject material, contributing to exhibitions, walks and engagement with the wider community.
