artists exhibitions

Somerset Art Weeks

Whew! Just back from a long weekend in Somerset at the invitation of a friend, Cathy Fox, to her wonderful home in Dinder. We dashed around Somerset visiting an amazing array of artist’s studios and met some really interesting people. All were great in their own way, but i must mention ,for all stitchers, you must visit Pink Wood where some of the 62Group have staged an exhibition in amongst the woods, real skill and a lot of humour, it is not to be missed and  this is the last week, ends on Sunday. also Chris Lee in Wells at the back of the art shop , wonderful pen and wash drawings of local buildings together with Liz whose house it was, a fab framer and cake maker , together with Jo’s delightful ceramics. On the last day we visited the amazing steel sculptures from Ian Marlow and met Emma, the smallest and daintiest blacksmith ever in Pylle.


So much going on in Somerset, i will definitely be back next year if my wallet allows!
