Cookham Festival – 7-22 May 2022

Come and see a wonderful array of sculpture and art at the Odney Club as part of the Cookham Festival Sculpture Garden, including a small collection of my work. Saturday 7 – Sunday 22 May 2022. Gates are open 10am and close at 5pm every day. The Odney Club, Cookham, Berks, SL6 9SR.

Running for the full two weeks of the Cookham Festival visitors can wander beneath specimen trees, along the water’s edge or by the herbaceous beds admiring the sculpture and art in the marquee, hosted by Artistry Gallery of Henley.

Artists at Goring – 2-4 June 2022

If you are looking for a wonderful location to visit for the late bank holiday, why not come to Goring on the banks of the Thames and pop into the village hall to immerse yourself in some art.

In 2022 the show will be slightly different from the previous five years. It is running in conjunction with the ‘Gap Arts festival‘, which is a wonderful mixture of music, dance and art held every other year in Goring and Streatly. Of course it has not run for the last two years due to Covid, so the organisers are expecting a huge turnout. Coupled with a massive street party for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, it should be a weekend to remember.

The exhibition is open Thursday 2 June (bank holiday) 10am – 6pm, Friday 3 June (bank holiday) 10am – 7pm, Saturday 4 June 10am – 7pm
