Beauty & Curiosity in The Forest, a joint exhibition between illustrator Becca Thorne and her photographer brother, James, will be open at Dean Heritage Centre, Gloucestershire from 10th Jan – 23rd February 2015. While James’ large-format photographs showcase the strange and sometimes otherworldly beauty to be found deep in The Forest of Dean, where the siblings grew up, Becca’s lino prints focus on the hidden wonders to be found in wild spaces across the country, from the Pembrokeshire coast to the Yorkshire Dales.

Admission to the show can be gained on entry to the museum. Dean Heritage Centre is dedicated to preserving and promoting the unique history and heritage of The Forest of Dean through its many wonderful displays, exhibitions, workshops and more.
