Celebrating Roger Farnworth: Painter, Poet, Archaeologist


Terre Verte Gallery Altarnun and Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival invite you to a special day celebrating Roger’s art, poetry, and interest in the archaeology of Bodmin Moor on Saturday 28th October 2017.

In the morning Historic England’s Pete Herring will lead a walk to Rough Tor, sharing Roger’s insights into the Neolithic mind. There will be a soup, snack and wine lunch at Terre Verte followed by a celebration of the Roger and Laura Farnworth Arts Residency Project.

Enjoy a fine exhibition of Roger Farnworth’s paintings of flowers, nudes, and the Cornish sea and landscapes he loved so much. These are for sale at affordable prices. The work of Farnworth Residents Ros Eastman and Tim Ridley will also be on show as will some of Roger’s collection of African masks.

We will round off the day with a poetry reading, led by Roger’s friend, co-director of Bodmin Moor Poetry Festival and award-winning poet Ann Gray.  Ann will introduce readings of Roger’s poems and original poetry and prose by Farnworth Residents Helen Jagger, Ben Smith, Katrina Naomi (read by Tim Ridley) and Lucy Wood.
