- Herefordshire Art Week
Over the years, beginning around 2002, Herefordshire Art Week has gained a momentum all of its own – from small beginnings, when rural artists would open up their workshops to enthusiastic and knowledgeable followers of the local art scene, it now boasts the participation of over a hundred local artists, myself included. The exhibits cover all genres and the quality of work and talent on display never disappoints.
In 2014 we were lucky to have at our disposal a beautiful exhibition space at a lovely country pub, nestled on the English – Welsh border in Ewyas Harold. Recently refurbished and all brand spanking new! The venue, The Temple Bar Inn, is building a reputation for itself as a great place to dine out, and for us as artists proved a great place to exhibit too.
Here are some images from that and subsequent exhibitions at the Temple Bar Inn for you to enjoy.
2. Hereford River Carnival.
Resurrected after a lull of many years the carnival has gone from strength to strength over the last few years. Held in April / May time, young and old alike get to test their navigational skills as they steer their colourful floats down the river – often with unexpected results!
3. The Lego Comic Book Superheroes Exhibition
I believe this exhibition has toured many countries but I viewed it in Madrid during the Christmas festivities of 2017. Obviously aimed primarily at children (I think!), it nonetheless appealed to all ages – the sheer ingenuity of the creators who fashioned all these instantly recognisable characters from our childhood out of millions of Lego bricks – a truly impressive collection.
