Guy has painted a series of oil paintings on canvas and primed paper over the summer that describe and respond to his walks and drawings around the many paths and views across the vistas of the Garden. The Garden for him has an elegiac and anarchic quality that is unique in British garden layouts and design and through the paintings he has sought to share and celebrate this.
Carol Ann has continued to develop her textile art using indigo and rust dyeing whilst simultaneously responding to the many varieties of eucalyptus in the Gardens and more recently using Autumnal flora developing Eco prints on wool, silk, linen and cotton.
Guy’s paintings will be on display in the Gallery adjacent to the Reception, shop and car park. Carol Ann’s textiles will be on display in the Gallery and Studio, entry to which is by the right-hand doors of the Tropical House.
Entrance to the Exhibition in the Gallery and Studio is free, charges apply to the Garden. Visitors, please obtain passes/tickets from Reception on arrival. Parking free.
