I have just collected h’Art brochures which will soon be distributed to venues across Herefordshire and adjoining counties. There is a super painting by Roger Luxton featured on the cover. There will be 104 venues to visit during the second week in September
I felt honoured on Sunday to have my May Hill paintings hanging on the walls at Oldfields House , where Edward Thomas lodged, with his family in 1914. Robert Frost and family would have visited from nearby Little Iddens and the two poets rambled around the countryside and over May Hill. The event was an hour of readings by Tom Durham from the work of Edward Thomas, as part of the Ledbury Poetry Festival programme. Thanks to Helen and Pete who hosted the very emotional, never to be forgotten event in their home.
An exceptionally successful event was held this weekend, as part of the Ledbury Poetry Festival, at the ancient Tilley Printworks by local artists and poets who have a particular interest in Bookarts. The working, letterpress printworks is hidden in one of Ledbury’s many alleyways but a regular stream of visitors managed to find us and once they had woven their way round the printing equipment, the office, and staircases….then .. a warm welcome, a chair to sit on and lots of self made books awaited them !
