A NEW exhibition at The Young Gallery in Salisbury, will present the work of 40 Arborealists and nine guest artists.

The Arborealists and Guests: the Art of the Tree, curated by Peter Riley, features artists including Jemma Appleby, Philippa Beale and Fiona McIntyre among the local artists engraver Howard Phipps and Paul Newman.

The Arborealists were founded in 2013 by artist and then curator at Southampton City Art Gallery Tim Craven following the seminal exhibition Under the Greenwood: Picturing the British Tree, staged at St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Lymington.

The movement has members from Wales and the borders to East Anglia and London and every southern county from Kent to Cornwall.

Outposts include Yorkshire, France and Ireland and has already staged 18 exhibitions to acclaim in the UK and Museums in France where Philippa Beale was the curator, more are planned for the future. Philippa Beale also contributed 3 illustrated publications to compliment the exhibitions.

The Arborealists and Guests at The Young Gallery will be open every day during the exhibition, 10am to 5pm.

It runs from Saturday until August 24.

Entrance is free and the works will also be for sale.

The Young Gallery is located above Salisbury Library.
