Neil Stuart: Fri 25 August – Sat 23 Sepetember

Neil Stewart’s intricate lino-cut prints, showing many instantly recognizable local views, captured the imagination of visitors.   These are quotes from just a few of them:

“Well Neil, what an extremely talented man you are! These are beautiful! You’ve succeeded in capturing the beauty of the land, and also the vibrancy of the communities that you clearly love and know so well. Kudos to you man! Well worth cycling all the way from the Pans (36 Miles!) Love it! P.s. Music is superb too!” Andrew

“Intriguing” P. Jefferson

“Fantastic, so talented!”  Dorothy Lewis

“Neil, these prints are wonderful! What a fabulous project.” Jennifer & Megan
