Taking place over five days this summer, Inspiring Landmarks is a new initiative from The Landmark Trust, where three artists who have all enjoyed residencies in the trust's many buildings will show their work alongside a programme of events and talks.

From 29 June to 4 July, Prue Cooper, Kurt Jackson and Ed Kluz will exhibit pieces directly inspired by some of The Landmark Trust’s best-loved locations, and be on hand for debates and conversations exploring the relationship between heritage, contemporary art and the creative process.

Highlighting the sociable, community atmosphere of a Landmark residency, Cooper has translated some of her experiences into dishes inscribed with quotations; Jackson’s large canvasses reflect a concern with natural history, ecology and the environment; and Kluz has drawn on his interest in lost country houses and ruins to depict several properties in his distinctive and eerie illustrative style.

All works in the exhibition are for sale, and the artists will be donating 30% of all proceeds to the charity. For the full events programme, head to The Landmark Trust website.

National Art Pass holders visiting the exhibition can also pick up a free copy of The Landmark Trust handbook, worth £10.
