To celebrate the Forestry Commission’s 100th and Fermynwoods Contemporary Art’s 20th anniversary, a listed building called The Arches at Fineshade Wood, Northamptonshire was recently renovated and opened to the public.

It is a space to showcase art projects and the refurbishment was jointly funded by Forestry Commission England and Fermynwoods Contemporary Arts with support from Arts Council England.

The Arches will serve as a project space and artist studio for 'The Forest Is The Museum', a programme of artists in residence and associated activity.

The Archive Of The Trees’, the body of work produced by artist Edwina fitzPatrick during her residency, is currently on display at The Arches as well as in Fineshade Wood itself.
