It was a warm, welcoming affair last Wednesday at the Artistree exhibit in Ledbury’s Weaver Gallery, which ran from November 23-29, and so it should be. Art collectors from afar came to view artists’ exhibiting works in search of that emotional connection for a work of art.
Various artists engaged with Willow and took her through the stories behind their exhibition pieces. She was very keen and enjoyed the popularity.
Beautiful Pagan inspired ceramics and sculptures made from raw or recycled materials brightened the room and pulled you into their earthy appeal. The mix was very eclectic featuring photography by Edoardo Mustafic whose profits from sales would go to Herefordshire Mind and many different gifted painters, authors, textile and book artists from around Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. Ledbury’s Artistree group has a popular following due to being based in one of Herefordshire’s cultural meccas that is the home of the Ledbury Poetry Festival.
