September Pop Up

Visitors loved the true gallery style pop up displaying works from 15 different artists

 

The September Archiimp Pop Up Gallery on the 15th & 16th was slightly different from the other pop ups, as it employed a true gallery style approach of displaying a couple of works from 14 artists and a special feature on one particular artist. 

 

Over the 2 days we had over 270 adult visitors and more than 30 children all enjoying the works on display. The artist information cards proved incredibly popular with some potential for follow on sales.

 

Visitor feedback was excellent with many visitors showing a keen interest in future events and full of praise for increasing the awareness of arts and artists in Worcester.

Contacts were also made with new artists that would like to be part of the Archiimp Pop Up Gallery Initiative and several bookings were made.

 

 

Julie Robertson Special Feature

Archiimp Pop Up Gallery on 15th & 16th September presents a special feature of works for sale by:

Julie Robertson MA

Multidisciplinary Artist (2D, 3D and Photography)

Julie Robertson Image

Julie Robertson is a Midlands based artist, always looking for new ideas and means of expression.

She thoroughly enjoys immersing herself in contemporary fine art during her recent study in Birmingham at Margaret Street School of Art, where she achieved her MA.

They say that life imitates art and vice versa, and this is particularly true of Julie’s work over the past 12 years shown here as the ‘Her Story’ Collection.

Her work has inevitably developed over time. After achieving her BA in 2006, ‘Cheshire Cat’ and ‘Graduation’ express the sheer joy of completing that lifelong goal. Post-graduation, her work came from an outward looking view developed through travel. ‘Out of the Blue’ and ‘In the Pink’ were inspired by trips to the Blue Caves in Zakynthos and ‘Lemons’, ‘Platter’ and ‘Vase’ came from time spent in Varese near Lake Garda.

As Julie matured, her focus has developed. In 2011, her mother-in-law was becoming increasingly ill at the age of 89, and even with the best efforts of the family, it struck me how lonely life can be for the elderly. ‘Undiscovered’ – the world goes on around her, as she sits waiting.

Inspired by Marion Wallace-Dunlop who was an artist and a key player in the Suffragette movement – the first suffragette to be force-fed. ‘The Artist’s Coat’ recognises and indeed celebrates the 100th Anniversary of some women getting the vote, – and is created in the Suffragette colours of purple for loyalty and dignity, white for purity and public life, and green for hope.

Julie’s latest work ‘Purple Rain’ and ‘Fluxus’ are about the random interconnections, interruptions or disruptions that shape our lives and reflect the latter part of her study in 2015/2016 which was influenced by joining in group study of Philosophy with Professor Johnny Golding and has underpinned her post MA work.

Open to the public from 10am to 5pm and both days at 16 Foregate, Street, The Hopmarket, WR1 1DL

The Worcester Music Festival itself: 

The Festival

Worcester Music Festival – a metropolitan festival supporting emerging artists and raising money for charity – returns for the eleventh consecutive year from
September 14-16, 2018.

The festival takes place in more than 20 venues in Worcester City Centre, hosting around 250 bands over 3 days as well as a number of workshops.

A non-profit making event, it is run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers who all give their time for free to support live music, encourage new audiences to visit new venues and help to make live music accessible to more people.

With live music across the city, from pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes to historic buildings, record shops, on the streets and even in breweries, the festival is absolutely FREE to attend. Our team of promoters put on hundreds of gigs, showcasing some of the best, new and emerging artists in the UK.

The festival also delivers free music-related workshops for the whole community. Adults and children can take part in everything from drum clinics and Q&As with industry experts to learning an instrument or singing in a pop choir. Amateur photographers of any age or experience can also enter the annual photography competition.

Almost £50,000 has been raised for charity by the festival in its eleven year history and the 2018 charity is Worcestershire Association of Carers.

The Music

There is a thriving live music scene in Worcester, which is why the festival was born in the first place. It attracts new audiences and gives music lovers the opportunity to discover new talent. Showcasing every genre imaginable – from rock, indie, metal, punk, psychedelic, pop and DJs to folk, jazz, blues, reggae, hip hop, country and acoustic acts – the festival has evolved to become a beacon for some of the best new and underground acts from across the UK.

Bands that have played our festival include Peace, God Damn, Das Sexy Clap, Jon Gomm, Xova, Virgil and the Accelerators, Jason Bowld, This Wicked Tongue, Nigel Clark, Guthrie Govan, The Stiff Joints, No Cars and many, many more.

With almost 1,000 bands and artists applying for a slot at each festival (around 200 slots are available over the three days), the 2018 line-up promises to be even better than ever and organisers are looking forward to showcasing a host of exciting, new acts.

The Charity

Since it began in 2008, festival-goers have generously donated almost £50,000 to 16 local charities.

The 2018 Festival will fundraise for Worcestershire Association of Carers. Wristbands and other merchandise will be available, along with collection buckets in every venue. Also, a team of fancy dress-clad charity collectors will roam the venues over the weekend with collection buckets. Every gig is free entry but audiences will be asked to dig deep to donate to this worthy cause.

The Fans

Tempted to check the festival out? Here’s what our fans say…

“Worcester Music Festival is live music by the people, for the people. With incredible line-ups and amazing events in venues scattered around this historic city, it should be in every music festival-goer’s diary.”
– Jon Gomm

“If you want to live, eat and breathe all kinds of music over a single weekend, Worcester Music Festival is for you. It’s a one-of-a-kind festival experience, an incredible ecosphere of live music.”
– Jason Bowld (Pitchshifter, PWEI, Killing Joke, Axewound, Bill Bailey)

“This is a great festival with an amazing amount of artists giving up their time for free. It’s a chance to spend the weekend exploring a wide range of musical creativity, while taking in the many splendours of the city.”
– Nigel Clark (Dodgy)

Worcestershire Association of Carers Website

Worcestershire Association of Carers offers both practical and emotional support for carers, who are working with a wide variety of disabled individuals, and aims to identify carers whilst raising awareness of their responsibilities within the wider community. This support can help combat isolation and ensure the carers needs are met alongside the needs of those they are caring for. The charity helpline educates carers about financial entitlements, respite opportunities, understanding the needs of the person they are caring for and so much more.

Established in 1997, the charity recognises the importance, value and significance of the thousands of unpaid adults carers all over the county. At some point during their lifetime, 3 in 5 people will work as an unpaid carer and the charity seeks to acknowledge the magnitude of the work of adult unpaid carers, offering them support to meet their needs and giving them a voice to allow them to influence the policy making and service planning that affects their lives.

Carol Cumino, CEO of Worcestershire Association of Carers acknowledges the “important and uplifting” effect that music can have on individuals and its ability to enhance wellbeing. The charity will use some of the money raised by WMF to organise a carer choir to harness those effects.

Worcester Music Festival is proud to support such an incredibly worthwhile cause and hopes that you will dig deep into your pockets when you see our fundraisers, or purchase a charity wristband to show your support.

Fabella’s Poems 3 of 3 Foundation

Fabella – A Giraffe with a tale

Poem 3 of 3 – Foundation

The last poem to adorn Fabella was inspired by the foundation of the City of Worcester, from its origin as a humble river crossing to the varied and vast cityscape we see today, narrated by the buildings themselves, as they need us as much as we need them. 

‘Foundation’

From deep in the earth our feet are found
Brick by brick born rising from the ground
Slowly we appear reaching for the sky
Some short, some tall and majestically high

Elaborate and grand or simple and small
Bathe in our beauty, every face every wall
Come in and shelter from the weather outside
Shop, work or relax we will abide

We’ll never learn to walk but stay we must
Look after us, please lest we’ll crumble to dust
Take pride in our being to be enjoyed by all
For we are your foundation, Worcester Stands Tall

Fountation poem

Fabellas Poems 2 of 3 The Battle

Fabella – A Giraffe with a tale

Poem 2 of 3 – The Battle

This side of Fabella has line work depicting the Commandery, which is known amongst other things for its connection to the Civil War and the poem tells of the story of the Battle of Worcester. 

The Battle of Worcester was the final battle of the English Civil War on 3rd September 1651, where Oliver Cromwell’s Parliamentarian New Model Army, some 28,000 strong, defeated King Charles II’s 16,000 Royalists.

‘The Battle’

Royalists and Parliamentarians battled hard
In the Civil war of Worcesters’ back yard
Charles watched from the Cathedral tower
Defending attack and displaying his power
Driven back towards the city, a final charge in Sidbury

Charles escaped through St. Martin’s Gate
Royalists fled and could not wait
Most were captured the following day
3000 died in this fierce affray

Battle poem

Fabella’s Poems 1 of 3 The Pear

Fabella – A Giraffe with a tale

Poem 1 of 3 – The Pear

The front of Fabella is surrounded by pears and proudly shows off  the Worcester Coat of Arms. 

Tradition has it, that it was during the visit of Queen Elizabeth I to Worcester in 1575 that Worcester acquired its second coat of arms featuring the black pear. It is said that during her procession through the streets of Worcester the Queen saw a pear tree which had been planted in the Foregate in her honour. She was so pleased at the appropriateness of the tree growing right in the heart of a fruit growing region, that she ordered the city add the emblem of pears to its Coat of Arms. 

How fitting that Fabella should be placed at Foregate!!

‘The Pear’

The Romans brought us the pear
Unique in its’ colour, very rare
It was fed to the troops at Agincourt
Adorning bowman’s banners during the war

Grown at the Abbey by the monks
Trees heavy with fruit from tip to trunks
Queen Elizabeth so admiring of the tree
Ordering three pears was her decree
to be part of the coat and to this day
the arms grace our city in a wonderful way

Rave reviews!

Hive installation getting rave reviews and calls for action!! 

The “Colour at Play Exhibition” at the Hive is getting a great response.

The 7 meter installation of 132 individual Worcester Cathedral images, with each image different to the next and no two images the same, has been receiving a huge amount of admiration.

People have been calling for the installation to be acquired by the city as a permanent feature in the hive or to be located in another public space within the city.

Local private individuals have said that they would be happy to contribute towards the cost of the installation in order to keep it in public hands.

Mr B commented, “I think this its so bright and vibrant, it makes me happy just looking at it. I have sat and looked at it for many hours and I really wish it could stay. This is a wonderfully colourful celebration of Worcester and it should stay where the public can see it.”

Miss S wrote, “Worcester needs something like this, what a great expression of colour and joy. It took me aback when I first saw it, what power and presence.”

The installation is only here until Thursday 6th September so make sure you pop into the Hive Cafe to see it while you can.

This installation is available to purchase as a whole or in parts, for more information please contact Chris on 07713 055 999 or email chris@architecturalimpressions.uk.

 

The poems of WST’s Fabella

Poems to be released

For those who wish to know the poems of Fabella – The Giraffe with a tale, I will be releasing the wording over the next 3 days, one poem per day. (Pear, Battle and Foundation).

I am starting to include more poetry to accompany my drawn artwork as its seems to be received well and I love the simplicity and rhythm.

A number of impromptu poetry performances at Jilly’s open gallery during the Worcestershire Open Studios by Suz Winspear, led to further discussions and the planning of additional co-operation between poets and artists. So watch this space…

Love Jilly

Fabella was designed and created by Jilly Oxlade-Arnott, is sponsored by The Worcester City Council and was brought to the streets of Worcester by Wild in Art in aid of the St.Richards Hospice for the Build 2020 Appeal and has been protected by citizens of Worcester and the boys and girls of British Transport Police 3 Counties.

WOS 2018 Review

Worcestershire Open Studios 2018 for Jilly @ Archiimp

Due to the weather visitor numbers were down on last year but those who came dug deeper than before and purchased more than ever.

 

A very special thank you to those who took time out of their August Bank Holiday to visit us and to our location partners, Keith and Zoe of Henley McKay Kitchens for giving us such a lovely space and making the event possible.

 

Our Pop Up Gallery and Events Dates section was a huge talking point with many people signing up to receive future event dates and Blog notices. We had plenty of discussions on how to get greater awareness and reach a wider audience and the initiatives were very strongly supported and welcomed by all – Thank you.

WOS 2018 9

This year we had a mini display from a guest artist – Chris Greening (pottery) which added synergy to the WOS as a whole, showed linkage with other local artists and provided a great complimentary visitor experience. Something we will employ again next year.

Our Worcester Stands Tall display also generated great interest and wonderful talking point with giraffe lovers. 

 

Unfortunately we were unable to take photographs during the busy visitor periods (by its very nature) but despite the spacious location it was surprising how quickly it filled up – maybe helped by the Kir Royals!

The must see Colour at Play Installation

New Micro Exhibition at the Hive 

Jilly launches new micro exhibition at the Hive, Worcester (Cafe Walls) entitled

Colour at Play 

Jilly comments on the installation “This exhibition explores the colour palette. Colour is everywhere in our lives and influences us daily. From the prominence of a brand, ‘Ferrari red’ to which shade of shoe we buy, we make choices with colour in mind. Do the colours collide, co-ordinate, interact or blend? How do they may us feel?”

Hive Exbo 1The single installation is made up of 132 individual pieces, depicting the vivid pop art inspired version of Worcester Cathedral in different colour ways, each piece is unique with no two pieces being the same.

Laid out over the entire wall, the installation is 7 meters long and almost 2 meters high, creating a dramatic, bright and bold spread of colour.

A must see exhibition as it’s only on for a few weeks (closes 6th September) so make sure you pop down to the Hive to see it while you can!

 

Worcester Show 2018 Review

Another great day at the show

Despite the damp and overcast day lots of visitors turned out for this years Worcester Show at Gheluvelt Park.

Amazingly a few stall holders didn’t turn up so we took advantage and spread out onto two neighbouring pitches, giving us plenty of room to show off our latest limited edition fine arts prints from the Global Collection.

These proved to be a huge success with great sales throughout the day, infact we sold out of our event stock of Battersea Power Station, Tower Bridge, St Pauls Cathedral and Worcester Cathedral Prints!!

Many thanks you to all those who braved the elements to visit the show and our stand. 

See you again next year!!

 

Rebirth of Riverside Arts

Reinvented Riverside Arts off to a great start 

Saturday 11th August saw the relaunch of the Riverside Arts Fayre by Archiimp.

The day started with a live radio interview with BBC Hereford & Worcester’s Andrew Easton.

The Event was opened by Worcester Mayor Jabba Riaz, who took time to meet all the artists and purchased several items himself.

RAF 7

The stands looked wonderfully colourful and were packed with art and creations from local artists. Visitors were offered a great array of art and hand made wares from silver pottery, glass, photography and paintings.

It was good to see the artists talking passionately about what they do and how they do it to the visiting shoppers.

A big thank to everyone involved in making this happen.

Our goal next year is to have 40 artists!!

If you are an artist or know someone who would be interested in taking part next year please contact Archiimp Curator Chris Oxlade-Arnott on 07713 055 999 for more details.

July Pop Up in the News

Artists display impressions of buildings and nature

By Jessica Charles

Caption: Worcester artist Jilly Oxlade-Arnott with some of her work that was on display at a drop in exhibition at the Hopmarket on Saturday. Image courtesy of Worcester News 2018.

ARTIST Jilly Oxlade- Arnott held an exhibition at 16 Hopmarket Foregate street. The Worcester artist displayed prints of eye catching places around Worcester like the Cathedral and the Museum of Royal Worcester. “I think people like my style because of the black and white surrounding and the colour.” Mrs Oxlade-Arnott revealed that one martial artist from Worcester likes her art so much that he is having a tattoo of her drawing of the Cathedral on his arm.

Mrs Oxlade- Arnott said it is “Amazing. He is a very interesting man and it is very flattering.”

Another artist who observed Mrs Oxlade-Arnott’s work has been inspired by one of her paintings to paint a piece based on it.

“She said she doesn’t usually like water colours” said Mrs Oxlade-Arnott.

“It is very flattering when another artist likes your work, it’s the greatest compliment. We all try to support each others work.”

Chris Haywood who teaches art at Kings School in Worcester displayed his oil paintings which depict Birmingham’s architecture. “I studied fine art at Birmingham University and got more interested in the city. Many of my pieces are focussed on 50s, 60s and 70s architecture which is usually quite ugly, rather than eye catching buildings, I try to make them a bit more attractive.”

Other artists who displayed work was photographer Mark Zytynski who confessed he is “obsessed with trees. Back when I was living on a barge in France. A French firewood system inspired Mr Zytynski to photograph trees. There were beautiful large log piles, and I started getting into the tree species. Any tree will do now, any trees with an interesting shape or a shot of light coming through them.”

July Pop Up Gallery Review

Wet but certainly not a wash out

July PUG 1

You can plan as well and as much as you like but you can’t plan the weather, the rain poured for the first time in months just as we opened the doors on Saturday and brightened up again as we closed them on Sunday – how very English!!

The weather did reduce the footfall but there was a steady stream of visitors throughout the weekend even during the heaviest downpours. All artists made sales,  gained new network contacts and increased their exhibition experience. During quite times the artists exchanged hints, tips, ideas, supplier contacts and other useful knowledge which was invaluable.

 

Chris Haywood said “The pop up exhibitions play an important role in raising the profile of Art in Worcester and are a good opportunity for artists to show their work to a local audience. It is very enjoyable to talk to people who have an interest in the Arts. The exhibition was expertly organised by Chris and Jilly and made it easy for artists to simply turn up and put their work up as they have done all of the time consuming background work. Even on a damp weekend, footfall was very good and the work received a positive reaction from everyone who popped in”.

Shilpi Sharma commented “The pop up gallery is a wonderful opportunity for local artists like me to display and share my work with others. It was very well organised and coordinated. It is a great platform for displaying and especially meeting a lot of wonderful people and sharing knowledge regarding art. Many thanks to Archiimp for all the help to reach out. I was very happy to be a part of the event and display & interact with lots of interesting  people and especially meet a lot of talented fellow artists”. 

Mark Zytynski said “I’m always grateful for a chance to exhibit so this opportunity was very welcome – especially as I’ve just moved to the area. Most valuable to me was the ability to ‘network’ and pick up on local artists, resource outlets etc by talking to the other exhibitors”. 

 

Worcester News sent a journalist and photographer to cover the event being swiftly published the following day.

Fabella gives colourful welcome to rail passengers

Article from City Council Press Office on 9th July

Fabella gives colourful welcome to rail passengers

Rail commuters and visitors to Worcester did a double-take this morning as they were greeted outside Foregate Street station by Fabella the giraffe, in her full pink, orange and red glory.

Fabella is one of 30 giraffes newly created for the Worcester Stands Tall public art trail (July 9 – September 16), which launched today. Sponsored by the City Council, she has been painted by local artist Jilly Oxlade-Arnott.

“I’ve painted Fabella with my favourite colours: orange, pink and red – and the circular effect across the whole giraffe is a homage to one of my favourite artists, Vincent Van Gogh,” says Jilly.

Fabella’s front and side are emblazoned with short poems written by Jilly, inspired by Worcester’s history. The black pear, a key feature of the city’s crest, appears prominently on Fabella’s front.

“Now that she’s in place, I think Fabella adds a huge splash of colour to Foregate Street station. It’s been great to see the reaction of people and to watch them stopping to read the poems on her sides,” she adds.

Cllr Marc Bayliss, Leader of Worcester City Council and Deputy Leader Cllr Adrian Gregson were thrilled to see Fabella in place for the first time today.

“Public art makes an important contribution to Worcester by adding vibrancy and excitement to the city, so we are delighted to support this trail,” said Cllr Marc Bayliss.

“I hope it will provide an impetus for people to explore new places in Worcester which they haven’t visited before.”

Cllr Adrian Gregson said: “Arts and culture have a long history in the city – and we are keen to champion and encourage them to grow even more in the future.”

You can see more of Jilly Oxlade Arnott’s work at a Pop-up Art Gallery to be held in 16 The Hopmarket, Foregate Street on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July from 10.00am to 5.00pm. She will also be displaying water colour paintings alongside artists Shilpi Sharma, Chris Haywood and Mark Zytynski.

My work focuses on Birmingham city centre, particularly looking at the buildings from the 1960’s and 70’s. I try to make the ordinary and mundane look interesting and attractive through the use of abstracted colour, expressive brush marks and dynamic compositions.

I love trees! I regard a tree as one of nature’s works of art as well as providing us with food, shelter, shade and fuel. Working from high resolution photographs I produce mixed media artworks and fine art prints with the aim of portraying the likeness, personality and even the mood of a tree or woodland clearing. Mark is also a Worcestershire Open Studio artist, No.68.

Archiimp have hung several pictures from its new Global Range, featuring The Leaning Tower of Pisa and The Colosseum in Rome, with more on the way.

Jilly Oxlade-Arnott of Archiimp said “I know that Pepe Verde will do well and I’m glad that they have stayed true to the Italian trattoria feel, with simple uncomplicated decor and a concentration on good food and good prices. Its great to help out a new business, I know just how hard it can be to start a business.”

Impromptu Pop Up @ the Nest

The Nest Opening Weekend

Archiimp provides an impromptu pop up gallery at The Nest courtyard at the Royal Worcester Porcelain works during the opening weekend on Sunday 1st June.  

Having been a visitor on Saturday afternoon, enjoying the new surroundings, watching the lively entertainment and stalls of the day selling bread, gin, beer and sausages, we were keen to get involved. We introduced ourselves to Neil of the Nest and we were delighted that he was able to offer Archiimp some space the following day. 

Not one for turning down a generous offer to exhibit in such a wonderful place on a gloriously sunny weekend (and maybe a few too many Bewdley ales) we to took up residence the following morning.

It was a fantastic day with a Samba band, a choir, food, drink and lots of sunshine.

Neil of The Nest commented “thank you for joining the opening celebrations, a
lovely weekend and I’m sure everyone that came will help spread the
word, it really is a great space.”

Jilly of Archiimp said “Lovely to meet you over the weekend and thank you again for the opportunity to exhibit at The Porcelain Works, its such a gorgeous space and very conducive to art.” 

Archimp joined some familiar faces who were also supporting Neil and the The Nest’s opening weekend on Sunday:

Archiimp Riverside Arts Fayre

Archiimp Launch their 1st Riverside Arts Fayre

The success of the Archiimp Pop Up Gallery Initiative has grown rapidly, since its inception in the New Year and Archiimp has been wanting to establish an annual event that would showcase its work throughout the year and one that would embed itself into the Worcester Arts calendar for years to come. 

We approached the City Council and LSD Promotions with a proposal to take ownership of the existing Riverside Arts Market. LSD had been managing this event for a few years but despite good marketing campaigns had little or no take up from within the arts community.  

The proposal was received very favourably by the team at the Council (lead by Helen Mole) and LSD (Dermot McGillicuddy) who agreed to partner in this new project which would be organised and managed under the Archiimp Pop Up Gallery banner.

The new Archiimp Riverside Arts Fayre is born.

AI Riverside Logo Snip

The 1st Riverside Arts Fayre is to take place on Saturday 11th August at the Worcester South Quay. 

Following feedback and research into why the old market failed to get established, Archiimp will be vetting artists applications to ensure the quality of work, diversity of art and mediums are of a high standard and a positive reputation of the event is built.

The event will take place on the same day as the St.Richards Hospice Duck Race and Celebration Garden taking advantage of the increased visitor numbers to the South Quay and will be opened by the Mayor of Worcester Jabba Riaz. It will include over 20 artists showing and selling a variety of art for all budgets.

If you are an artist and are interested in participating in this event please follow the link to our partners LSD website below and complete an application form:

or contact Chris directly at cjarnott@hotmail.com

Due to the popularity of this event, we urge you to respond as soon as possible (50% of artist stalls have been booked already!!!!)

May Pop Up Gallery Review

May Pop Up Artists

Despite the closure of Foregate Street Station, the bypass bridge works and unpredictable weather, which led to some people avoiding Worcester City Center over the May Bank Holiday weekend, many turned out and dropped in to see and purchase work on display.

Fellow artists visited the gallery supporting the exhibition, along with collectors, existing and new customers. Many sales were made.

The newer artists learnt a lot from the experience, in areas such as artwork labeling, pricing, display techniques and gained confidence and experience with public interactions. Awareness of their art has been increased and all are confident that additional future sales will be forthcoming as a result of this event.

The public enjoyed the varied works on display from intricate paper art, watercolour, photography to aboriginal art, with pricing range from a few pounds to a few hundred.

Mandy commented ‘Thanks very much to Jilly for arranging the bank holiday Pop up Gallery. I enjoyed every moment of it… Spoke to lots of lovely people that walked through the door – and lots that were really interested in my style of painting!  Always appreciate any helpful comments (good or bad!!!) Working with Jilly, Edyta and Charlotte was great fun – time flew far to quickly!’

Croome Exhibition Private View

New exhibition launch a great success

Now open to the public until end of September 2018

The opening of ‘Art in Architecture’ exhibition at the National Trust Croome, by Worcestershire artist Jilly Oxlade-Arnott, was a great success with over 100 guests and dignitaries. Attendees included fellow artists, art buyers, architects, business leaders, local tourist venues and information managers, the local MP, and some guests travelling over four hours to see the opening.

Robin Walker, MP for Worcester, said “Congratulations on the exhibition it looks brilliant and very much belongs in Croome.”

Phoebe Dawson, CEO Worcester BID (Business Improvement District), said “What a lovely way to spend a Friday eve, cheering on my talented friend on the eve of her fabulous art exhibition. Congrats Jilly!”

Ruth Smith, Worcester Tourist Information Centre Manager, commented “Had an amazing first glimpse of Jilly Oxlade-Arnott’s exhibition. Great talent and beautiful surroundings.”

Jadu Sheridan, Artist, said “Well worth a visit to Croome. Fantastic work Jilly you must be very proud.”

John Glover, local businessman, “Thank you for inviting me to your VIP Preview of your stunning artwork in association with the National Trust. I am so proud of what you are doing and the recognition you are getting for your talents.”

The exhibition, which is now open to the public until end of September 2018 will also feature a monthly artist in–situ day, where Jilly will be located in the Library, within the Court of Croome, creating new artworks and will provide two half hour presentations during the day. Visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase her artwork through a sealed bidding system with 20% of sales going to Croome’s conservation projects. Other events such as watercolour master classes and children’s art days are also planned. Please keep an eye on the Croome website for more information on these events.

This comes off the back of the highly successful commission of the Elgar’s Birthplace -The Firs, produced by Jilly for its reopening in September last year when Jilly was invited by Michael Smith (General Manager at Croome) and Amy Forster-Smith (Visitor Experience Manager), to exhibit at Croome as part of their Woman and Power national theme.
