Spring is here!

Rapefield1, Near The Shippen, CantlopWe have hardly had a Winter and Spring has suddenly blossomed in the last week. Fields of rape are an eye-watering, vivid yellow and the hedges are greening quickly. Around The Shippen the hedgerows are alive with young blackbirds that have just fledged and sparrows chattering excitedly.

At Twenty Twenty Gallery our British Glassmakers and Printmakers exhibition kicked off with a great glassblowing demonstration by Tim Boswell and Elliot Walker, also known as The Bandits of Glass. There are some stunning pieces in the exhibition by 7 artists/makers including Peter Layton of London Glassblowing. The British Printmakers¬† section includes some excellent collectors prints by John Piper (Whitwick Manor below) and Richard Bawden and contemporary printmakers Rosemary Vanns and Mychael Barratt. It’s definitely worth a visit and is on until 24th May. http://www.twenty-twenty.co.uk/index.php
