To return some of Samuel Palmer’s paintings of his Darent Valley period for an exhibition within the scheme area alongside other more contemporary pieces of art, inspired by his and the scheme’s work. This will be a celebration of people’s appreciation and connection with the valley’s landscape and an exciting opportunity for local people to have their own interpretations displayed alongside those of one of the country’s most visionary landscape artists. Ultimately, it will inspire a new generation of artists to interpret the Darent Valley landscape for themselves and introduce a new audience to landscape art so that they develop an appreciation for themselves.
