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.

The brainchild of local photographer and music producer Edoardo Mustafic aka Ed Headphones, a well loved eccentric around town, the gig featured 3 local punk bands (The Youth Within, Billy Whizz, Pablo Alto) that would end up shaking the walls of The Royal British Legion for a night few locals will forget, complementing his motto for the night ‘You’d be mad not to come’. Quite!

There were technical issues during the Billy Whizz performance, (down to dodgy lighting apparently), but soon in true Herefordshire style, onlookers jumped into lend a helping hand, and all was shortly sorted commencing the night’s shenanigans. Revellers were drawn to the sounds through the cobbled streets, as it was such a success that they had to turn punters away! All in a night’s gig. Continue reading “Punk Allegiance at the Legion”
