My friend, artist Victoria Hilton, invited me to see her paintings at The Hills Studios near Market Drayton. It has been a year since I last viewed her work and these 'Painted Reliefs' of hers were stunning and well presented amongst the rustic buildings:
More of Victoria's work will be exhibited at Gateway Gallery3 during July and August.
The upstairs gallery was just as lovely and inviting:
I was also very pleased to see paintings by Midge Naylor whose work has already been recommended to me:
Midge also had some of her prints on display, which were mainly collagraphs. I was especially taken with these and their subtle handling of colour and texture.
At the far end of the gallery was work by the multitalented Monica Grohman who specialises in ceramics and mixed media paintings. Also the unusual and intriguing sculptures of Neil Wood in the corner:
Janet Creed's ceramics were also a delight with their 'soft tactile qualities '. Through the window you can see a lovely view out to the countryside surrouding the Hill Studios:

Unfortunately if you wish to visit there is only one day left to do so - Saturday 6th June. However, I will keep you posted on further events held at The Hills Studio.
