August Bank Holiday at Ross-on-Wye Heritage Centre

Reg Ansell has been exhibiting and selling his work throughout the month of August. Reg is a popular local artist and his work shows many different styles in many different mediums - something for everybody. His work is very reasonably priced and may be reserved or purchased from the staff on duty.

On August Bank Holiday Monday Reg will be "live" painting underneath the arches of the Market House. He will be only to pleased to talk to people about his techniques and the use of different mediums. This is a free activity for all and will give visitors a chance to view the work for sale upstairs.

Would you like to join Reg and give a demonstration of your work?

Why not set up your easel and spend a leisurely day painting? Mary Sinclair Powell would love to hear from anyone who would like to bring their art or craft to the Market House for the day - whether it be art work, quilting or wood carving. Please contact the Heritage Centre as soon as possible to book a (free) space. Demonstration space can be arranged under cover if desired.

In the Heritage Centre itself that day, Ann White will be demonstrating her quilting skills once again, as will Lyn Tomlinson her card making skills. August is also festival month. To mark this the centre will be displaying the 'Blue Tube' Sculptures, from the festival. "The Thinker" and "The Kiss" are two very imaginative pieces using a very unusual medium. They need to be seen to be appreciated and will be exhibited from 24th August to 9th September.

Richard Lewis and Sue Parker have now settled into their roles at the Centre and together with Judith Wilkins and Chloe Cooke, make a good all round team. They will be pleased to answer any queries and if they do not have the answer, Mary Sinclair Powell will get back to you as soon as possible.

Further details, as always, on all forthcoming events and exhibitions at the Heritage Centre can be obtained by calling in or telephoning 01432 260675 during opening hours (10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday, Sunday 10.30am to 4pm). A lunch break closure takes place between 1pm and 1.30pm daily. A full list of events and exhibitions to be held between now until December is available at the Centre.

Finally . . .

If you had difficulty finding your bearings on Monday morning, not knowing which way to turn or whether you were coming or going, don't worry - it was a forseeable event. The BBC had already predicted this would happen and took the trouble to display the information on 'Ceefax' the evening before. They even added a little weather information as well.
