Tracing the Landscape: Cumbrian Farm Women at Abbot Hall Art Gallery in Kendal is a new multi-media art installation by artist Patricia MacKinnon-Day. Patricia was born in Glasgow and studied Fine Art at Liverpool School of Art before completing an MA at the Royal College of Art, London.

The artist has created a series of exhibitions and site-intervention projects both nationally and internationally. Patricia's artistic process involves excavating and investigating layers of a place over a period of time. In collaboration with five Cumbrian farm women, MacKinnon-Day has developed a new multi-media art installation at Abbot Hall Art Gallery that explores Cumbrian communities.

Some historians have acknowledged the contribution made by wives of farmers in agrarian history. Until now no artist has attempted to examine in detail the lives of these women from their own perspective and to make that experience visible to a wider audience.

Joint Gallery & Museum £9, free entry for students & children under 16
