Amongst a box filled with stretched canvas and paintings on wood, we re-discovered these fantastic landscapes of the local area. Both painted by Vanessa Bell, the first is of the old Coach Road looking towards Firle Tower on the right.

Patti Smith, American musician, poet and artist, will open an exhibit of her Bloomsbury-inspired photographs with a solo show of poetry and music at the Farringford Hotel on the Isle of Wight today.

The exhibit itself is at Dimbola Galleries and Photographic Museum, Freshwater Bay. It features 20 prints  Smith personally selected for the show.

Dimbola is the former home of the pioneering Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. Its library houses rare and donated books about her and her work. Smith chose Thursday’s date for the opening because it was Julia Margaret Cameron’s birthday.

Smith recently completed a residency at Charleston Farmhouse in Sussex, which belonged to Bloomsbury painter Vanessa Bell, an experience that inspired many of the photographs in the show, according to the Isle of Wight’s County Press Online. The show will be held in the Old Library Gallery for six weeks.

The  photographs include objects associated with Bell, her sister and author, Virginia Woolf, and their mother, Julia Jackson — a favorite model of Julia Margaret Cameron, pioneering Victorian photographer, the County Press Online reports.
