Emblem of My Work
Shandy Hall, Coxwold, North Yorks - 3 Sept - 31st Oct 2011

Artists and writers celebrate the 250th anniversary of the publication of Volumes III and IV of Tristram Shandy.

"Laurence Sterne called the marbled page you see opposite 'the motly emblem of my work'. This marbled page is different in every copy of every edition of Tristram Shandy. To celebrate the 250th anniversary of page 169 artists and writers have created The Emblem of their Work. Each completed page will be on display in the gallery (and on the blog) with a description of materials used and, where provided, an account of the reasoning behind the Emblem.
A list of all 169 contributors will be on display but the identity of each Emblem-maker will be hidden. The visitor is invited to match each work to its maker."

This exhibition follows the highly acclaimed 'Black Page' exhibition and subsequent auction in 2009.

In addition to submitting an 'emblem' Peter has been commissioned to make a 'marble page' mural tablet in limestone and Breche de Vendome marble which is sited in the gallery.
