Our waterways have long provided creative inspiration for artists and writers. Gloucestershire's canals and rivers provide a huge range of locations from the sublime and sometimes ferocious River Severn, the busy Gloucester/Sharpness canal, to the long abandoned but soon to be renovated Stroudwater canal.
'WaterWay' examines these arteries of wildlife, trade and recreation, while also looking at the surrounding landscape, those who make a living along it's shores, the communities who live close-by waterways or those who come simply to enjoy the water in all it's various moods.
Kel Portman is a founder member of the arts collective 'Walking the Land' and makes artworks, photographs and installations that are inspired by walks and journeys through the landscape.
