The scent of wild garlic mingled with the sweeter perfume of the wisteria blossom, giving another sensory experience for today’s visitors to artmorelovely at Heyford House. Tea and cake were eaten by many in the comfort of Rodas’s chairs and benches, on the lawn with the sun’s gentle warmth.
It was a day of semi-planned and serendipitous visits. We saw friends, old acquaintances, fellow artists and interested artlovers – even Ralph Steadman and Fiona Bruce chanced to drop in. Some of our visitors were prompted to come by receiving our cards in their North Aston organic vegetable boxes. Others saw the sign on the main road, and took a detour to satisfy their curiosity! Several people had walked along the canal, and popped in to see our show.
To add to the sprinkling of ‘i’ words used to describe our work in the visitor’s book was ‘invigorating’. These young’uns seem uplifted by the experience! Sticky toffee pudding did nothing to dampen the energy levels.
Less wicked, but no less delicious, below is pictured one happy consumer of bread and art (it could be argued that Kath’s sourdough bread is an edible art form, sprinkled with seeds or cheese).
Tomorrow will be our last day at Heyford House, Lower Heyford. Come and share it with us! We have really loved doing Artweeks and are already planning for next year!
