At Worcester Cathedral

The exhibition Rain, Wind and Change is now open in the South Cloister of Worcester Cathedral and runs until 21 May.

We were not allowed to touch the ancient walls of the Cloister so hanging the large drawings was a challenge – Angus Macdonald devised an ingenious solution using builders fencing panels. It was an untried idea but fortunately it worked very well.

The Private View on 3 May was preceded by Choral Evensong in the Cathedral. Canon Kimberly said a few words of welcome, The Very Reverend Peter Atkinson, Dean of Worcester, was present and Catherine Swire read her poem Chantry Song. We drank local perry, cider, apple juice and Malvern water which all came from the surrounding countryside. It was simple, stylish and how I wanted it.

On Saturday, 20 May Catherine Swire and I will have an informal discussion about poetry and painting at a free event. If you would like to come along meet in the Chapter House at 11 am.

Here is Cathy reading her poem with young Max Martin stealing the show.
