Reclaiming Our Village
In a small eff
ort to “reclaim our village” and to f orce myself to look f orwards, I’m going to open an exhibition here at Crown Studio Gallery on Saturday 17th July called “A Celebration of Rothbury”. It will mostly be a selection of my landscape paintings of the area.
BUT one of the exhibits will be a notice/pin-board, where I will be inviting people to add their own recollections/ observations on the theme of “A Celebration of Rothbury”.
I invite you to make a contribution to this. It doesn’t need to be a maj
or literary w ork; it doesn’t even need to be clever (!), just genuine. It could be a sketch, whatever you would like to express. The imp ortant thing is that it should help us to remember just why we are here. Leave messages here in the comments or send them via email which you will find on our website www.crownstudio.co.uk
I’ve already had a contribution from Sophie Woolley, playwright and actress who played Gabriella in “Cast Offs” on Channel 4. She writes the simple- but heartfelt message,
