Message from Tereska Williams at the Willow Gallery, Oswestry.

Welcome to What's On at The Willow Gallery & Eatery
This Saturday – 5th November – The Willow Gallery opens our new Exhibition.  Featuring work from Kay Boyce, Borderland Visual Arts, 'Inspired', Sara John and more, the Arts and Crafts Exhibition has over 100 pieces of work on display.  We look forward to you calling in to take a look.

Christmas in our Gift Shop
Greek Night at the Willow Eatery

Saturday 5th November – 14th January
Join us this Saturday to view our new exhibition and meet some of the artists exhibiting.

This exhibition features new work by Kay Boyce from her Black on White Collection. Kay would like to introduce you to a new aspect of her work which follows the study and admiration of a beech tree at the foot of her garden. This, together with further inspiration from her love of trees and architecture, rekindled an interest in the medium of pen and ink, not used since her college days.  The show features original works and prints.

Borderland Visual Arts group exhibition entitled 'Bijoux' offers you little gems of Artwork from their members.  Over 30 members of the BVA have risen to the challenge and produced work for this themed exhibition where size is restricted. 2D work has to be less than 13' and 3D work must fit into a 6' cube. A wide range of disciplines are on offer: prints, mixed media, acrylic, glass, wood, jewellery, bronze and stone. Something for everyone!

Complimenting these works we also have textiles from the group 'Inspired', portraiture from new exhibitor Daniel Yeoman and a selection of bold Welsh landscape paintings from artist Sara John.
This Exhibition is the perfect excuse to escape the cold and come and have a look around.

All our workshops and courses are held in the Dunbabin Room here at the Gallery.The small groups are relaxed and friendly and open to all levels from beginners to those just wanting to brush up a little.Full details and booking forms are on our website, or you can phone us or call in.
