Art Exhibition by Jon Young

Dear Blogger

Message from Ali Tickner, Eardiston

Art in the Long Room


North Shropshire artist Jon Young, from near West Felton, is delighted to be working in partnership with Oswestry School this term to provide the backdrop for a school social evening.


Jon has returned to his love of acrylic on canvas after years of working in education and his artwork has been sold across the UK from the Highlands to the south east. He has had solo exhibitions at many venues locally, including this summerÆs visually stunning ôArt in the Barnö at The Sweeney, as well as further afield in Chester and Shrewsbury.


The exhibition in the glorious space of The Long Room, will comprise JonÆs collection of vivid, eye-catching seascapes from around Wales as well as further afield, dramatic landscapes, and also his beautifully crafted paintings and portraits of people. With seascapes featuring views across the Menai Straits and around the North Wales coastline JonÆs strong, colourful images will delight and impress.

Prints and cards of JonÆs artwork will also be on display and available to purchase.

The exhibition will be open to the public on the evening of 21st from 6pm. Refreshments will be provided

Cliffe Crew working party tomorrow, Sunday 13th at 9am

Dear Blogger

Message from David Sheran.

The Cliffe Crew meet tomorrow for their second work party. Come along if you can to help with the maintenance of the Cliffe and itÆs lowland heath habitat. It will probably involve clearing scrub, cutting back small colonising trees and tramping down bracken. Meet at 9am on Sunday 13 October at the Ruyton XI Towns end of the Cliffe, outside the cottages at the end of the bridleway from Little Ness Road.

Lee our Park Ranger will be in charge. Bring tools like shears, secateurs, loppers and perhaps a hot drink and snacks. The aim will be to work from 9am to noon.
