Exmoor Society stages exhibition about Hope
THE Exmoor Society is paying tribute to farming and Exmoor legend, Hope Bourne, with an exhibition of her life and work.
On show will be Hope's sketches and drawings, and photographs with quotations from her books, depicting Exmoor's changing seasons, wildlife, light and colours and a rural way of life.
Hope was famous for her rugged lifestyle on the moor where she lived for nearly 20 years in a caravan, surviving with her artistic and literary talents and her love of the moor, its people and wildlife.
The exhibition includes personal possessions, a Book of Memories from her many friends, some dating back to her childhood, and audio of her reading from her book, Wild Harvest.

A ten-minute DVD by film-maker Chris Chapman, who knew Hope well, will be shown for the first time.
It sets the context for the exhibition, with photographs and present day scenes, combined with Hope's drawings and extracts from conversations with her about her belief and the spirit of Exmoor.
The Exmoor Society inherited Hope's entire estate when she died in 2010. Chairman Rachel Thomas said: "We're in the process of cataloguing all the material and wish to share this rich legacy by celebrating Hope's life and by making her bequest accessible to the public."
Hope Bourne's Exmoor runs from March 25 to November 2 at the Guildhall Heritage and Arts Centre in Dulverton. Free admission.
