Brush Strokes

Nicki Gwynn-Jones and Ray Hill

26 June – 2 July 2013


  • Ray will be showing paintings of landscapes inspired by nature, acrylic on canvas, using an intuitive and emotional response to the colourful beauty of the English landscape. These works use texture and also smooth blending of paint to create images that are familiar yet are of no place in particular, creating a scene that is both calming and peaceful for the viewer.


  • Photographer Nicki’s take on the natural world is that of a visual artist.  Birds are her primary passion and her work explores their private world and speaks of their essence.  Her work is delicate and ethereal and is often mistaken for watercolour painting, an effect she achieves through a high key approach and through movement.  She will also be showing high key images of flowers.

What’s Next?

  • Maintenance The east turret is in need of repair to prevent rain leaking in when the wind is in the ‘wrong’ direction. We hope to get this done during gallery downtime.
  • Hire Dates for 2022 The release of dates for hiring the gallery in 2022 is under review pending the availability of dates for events in the gardens.
  • New gallery layout

    What do you think of the new gallery layout?
