Stephen West Exhibition

2 April - 30 April

Charcoal drawing copyright Stephen West

We are delighted that our first exhibition of the 2019 season is to be work by Stephen West. He will be exhibiting egg tempera and acrylic paintings and black and white drawings in charcoal and ink, all roughly on the theme of ‘outside the window’ nature, space and light as seen around our dwellings – trees, birds, people.

The exhibition is open 11 am-4:30 pm each day, except closed on Mondays.
