Tell it to the Trees at Croft Castle…

ENDS NEXT TUESDAY!….

Ancient woodlands, a mysterious picturesque valley, an intimate walled garden and a Gothick Castle have been the setting for ‘Tell it to the trees’, a year long exhibition of contemporary sculptural installations and paintings at the National Trust’s Croft Castle in Herefordshire. It began last July and ends with sustained applause next Tuesday 14th September. Really, don’t miss it! It’s like nothing else.

Commissioned by Meadow Arts, nine artists have been involved in the project showing work that is inspired by man’s relationship to trees. They are Mariele Neudecker, Philippa Lawrence, Brass Art, Laura Ford, Juneau / projects and Clare Woods.

Take a look at our pictures and then go and take some more for yourself…
