Venerable Oak, Birches Farm - studio watercolour included in h.Art show

h.Art Herefordshire Art Week

Two years on and I'm delighted that h.Art is going ahead Saturday 4th to Sunday 12th September in 100 venues all over Herefordshire. The usual pink brochures can be picked up from any h.Art venue and other public places.
I've been invited to join a group show at St Michael's Church, Discoed, a beautiful little church with a 5,000 year old yew tree near Presteigne, easy parking in the courtyard behind the church:
show open daily 11am to 5pm
I'm stewarding 1pm to 5pm on Sat 4th & Sunday 12th, it would be lovely to see you there
