Round the year from Stonewall Hill. A journey in time and space’ by painters Mary Rennell and Richard Gilbert and photographer Brian Griffiths and displayed at Hereford Museum and Art Gallery, Broad Street, Hereford. Featuring ‘Round the Year from Stonewall Hill’ (also known as ‘Four Seasons on the Welsh Border’) by Mary Rennell (1901 to 1981). 12 drawings in Chinese ink on rice paper (each 153 x 69 cm). Created over a year from November 1967 to October 1968 from the back seat of her Mini. Exhibited in 1970 at the National Library of Wales/Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru, Aberystwyth, which then purchased the 12 panels. Now after 50 years they have emerged from storage to make their long overdue debut in the county of their creation. Lady Rennell lived at Rodd Court near Presteigne and loved depicting the Welsh March – its trees, landscape and old settlements. In these 12 panels, her magnum opus, she merges the techniques and potency of Chinese painting with her beloved borderland as subject. She took inspiration for the project from seeing her friend Sidney Nolan’s large 9 panel series ‘River Bend’ which relates episodes of the Ned Kelly tales set on the banks of an imagined […]

Kids at the Court is a summer club for children aged 5 – 11 taking place in the in the safe and inspiriting environment of Barton Court. Children outside these age ranges may be accepted if we have the facilities available. Combining play with learning to give each child a fun day out that enriches them, they will dance, draw, paint, mess about with mud, toast marshmallows and generally run about in a carefree way while our trained staff keep a careful eye on them. The day starts promptly at 9.30am when the children are split into age groups and go onto either a dance or art session with their peers. After break, when we give them drinks and fruit, they swap activity. At lunch, they sit and eat their packed lunches and chat about what they have been doing in the morning. Then, rested and refreshed, they have free play for half an hour. We feel that it is important for them to have the opportunity to decide whether or not engage with the games available during their free time. For example, a group of girls sat chatting and piling up pea gravel rather than take part in rounders. […]
