Louise Tunnard, Marketing and Communications Officer, and lady without whom most of us wouldn’t know what we are doing, was in London recently. She writes…

“These are three images (see below) that I took at the Aspire National Network for Constable Studies Event at Tate Britain last Thursday, 11 July.

This was to celebrate the Aspire Partnership, where we worked with five partners, National Museum of Wales, Oriel y Parc, Ipswich and Colchester Museums and National Galleries of Scotland. Each of us took it in turns to host Constable’s ‘Great Salisbury’.

The Salisbury Museum has also recently worked with the team from Late at Tate, members of Katy England’s TSM Collective, and a famous graffiti artist – Carleen de Sozer. We hosted a graffiti workshop here and also had a graffiti tour of Salisbury Cathedral. All the young people met at Tate Britain on Saturday 6 July at an event called ‘Fete at Tate’ to create a work of graffiti art, inspired by Constable’s painting of Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows, exhibited 1831.

(There was also a) Lego Constable that was made at Tate Britain – inspired by our own.
