In Peter's own words "Painting the like of "4-Seasons' Trees" has essentially to do with my place on this Earth.  Not very different from my farmin and growing of vegetables and apples.  It is another attempt at bein part of everything that's out there: @Fields and hedgerows under ever changing skies, the garden and orchard - representations of its trees of course, however visually translated, a prominent feature of this exhibition."

Guest blog: A room with a view - Chloe aged 15

My Room with a View

Written by recent guest Chloe aged 15 (August 2016)  

I woke up this morning to look out my window only to see a sea of green; Green Grass, green trees. I could see that it would be a beautiful summer’s day.

Amongst the grass, I could see sculptures, both big & small. Some people were admiring them. I could see my favourite sculpture- A sculpture of a deer, standing alone but strong.
