Another Beastly Art Exhibition – Nature In Art
March 5th – 17th, Nature In Art, Twigworth, Gloucester
Jane Vernon, Nat Morley and myself have been exhibiting together under the ‘Beastly’ banner for many years! As the name suggests, it is inspired by our combined love of animals and nature and for anyone that shares this fascination,it’s a ‘must see’ exhibition.
Newbury Flower Show, Newbury Showground
April 13th – 14th, Newbury Showground, Thatcham, Berks, RG18 9QZ
New venue for 2019! Checking out venues a little further afield. Will be exhibiting alongside other members of the Cotswold Craftsmen, Hereford Guild and Worcester Guild so there will be plenty of high quality and unique work to browse around – and hopefully feel inclined to buy! We will be inside the main building, right next to the restaurant/cafe. What could be better!
RHS Spring Show, Malvern
The Spring Show at Malvern is always a good one! With so much to do and see, don’t forget to visit Bay 2 of the Wye Hall, where The Cotswold Craftsmen, along with the Hereford Guild of Craftsmen and the Worcester Guild of Designer/Makers, will be exhibiting very high quality, hand-crafted items for sale. Meet the makers – including me:-)!! – to discuss work and possible commissions. Check out the links below for more details.
Hookhouse Pottery Exhibition, Tetbury
