The role of horses in WW1

James Aldridge, Artist & Creative Learning Consultant and Director of Creative Ecology is a Wiltshire artist who was commissioned last year to research and make artwork on the subject of the role that horses played in World War 1, with specific reference to Hampshire and its Remount Centres, from where thousands of horses were sent to The Front each month.

 The Home Lad Home exhibition will be open to the public from  Saturday 1st March until 26th April. at St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery in Lymington ( http://www.stbarbe-museum.org.uk/menus/1st-march-25th-april-2014-home-lad-home-hampshires-war-horses/ ). 

James will be exhibiting ‘Connection and Trauma’ a piece which presents his research on horse – human relationships and the contrasting landscapes of rural Hampshire and The Front, made at Kingsettle stables on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border and the site of the Romsey Remount Centre.
