John Furnival was a student at the Royal College in the 1950s alongside David Hockney. Best known as a 'visual poet' with work in the Tate, he has since lived with his textile artist wife Astrid in  Nailsworth and Woodchester. This exhibition shows drawings, prints and collages from over 50 years, with a focus on his collaborations with Astrid, that resulted in her producing many text-based knitted garments using natural dyes.

Curated by Bernard Moxham and accompanied by a publication with essay by Stephen Bann, the programme includes tours of the exhibition and workshops.

Apple Tree Moon
 

Arthur Penn lives near the town of Nailsworth in the Cotswolds with his wife Kate and Louis the Labrador. His studio has a door which opens onto their garden, which is where he finds much of his inspiration. He has always explored a range of printmaking processes, including etching and collagraph, but most recently has been making a series of lino block relief prints. He uses handmade Japanese paper and slowly hand prints his designs using a spoon to burnish the paper. His ideas are drawn from house and garden, simple everyday plants and familiar objects. Above all he is inspired by the transient beauty of nature, and details such as the way things grow, the arabesque of the natural forms, the direction tendrils spiral, leaves curl and ferns unfurl.

Arthur will be ‘in residence’ on Sundays 8, 22 and 29 July between 2pm and 4pm. He’ll be running a workshop for adults on 15 July and drop in printmaking activities for children on 25 July. Do come and meet him then.

Gallery Two Exhibition: A4
 

Yasemin is a local papercut artist who creates unique pieces of work. From a small home-based studio in Stroud, she cuts her own original designs from paper using a scalpel. Each piece is unique and entire, cut from a single sheet of paper.  Nature and The Arts & Crafts Movement are her main sources of inspiration. This colourful collection demonstrates how a single piece of A4 sized paper can be transformed.

Works are for sale and proceeds will be donated by the artist to Duchenne UK. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood. The disease almost always affects boys, and they tend to be diagnosed before the age of 5. There are around 2,500 patients in the UK and an estimated 300,000 sufferers worldwide.

Meet the Artist and find out more on Saturday 7 July between 2pm and 4pm.

Summer Poetry Evening
 

Jeff Cloves reads from his new book, Once Weekly, which will be available at £5.

Jeff says that he has never been a prolific writer, so when a friend challenged him to write a poem a week for a year, he was apprehensive.  Now here they are, unedited and printed in the order they were written.  The first arrived on November 15th 2016 and not one week was missed in 52.

As the poems were prepared  for print Jeff was taken aback to see how often his grandparents, his mum and dad, his children, his family cats even, appeared among memories, stories, and dreams. So this little book has turned out to be part biography, part autobiography, part journal. It's also part diary: a response to the seasons, to national news, to the universal pop arts of sport, film, and music. 

Come along and enjoy! Free entry, books and drinks available to buy.

Jenny Wren Productions present: Emma
 

Adapted by Martin Millar and Doon MacKichan

Jenny Wren Productions delve into the dating scene of the early 19th century in this playful adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel. Emma constantly tries to pair off her unfortunate friend Harriet Smith with unsuitable men but is convinced that, for herself, the single life is the only way. Matches are made and unmade quicker than you can say "how delightful", but after all the outrageous flirting, declarations of love and heaving of bosoms, will Emma's heart escape unscathed?

As Jane Austen writes, members of her family become her characters; blushing heroines, dashing suitors and dastardly cads and many more, bringing her story of the ultimate matchmaker to mischievous life.

From the company that brought you Twelfth Night, Robin Hood and last year's Jungle Book, make a date this summer with Jenny Wren Productions out of doors in the beautiful Walled Garden. Gates open at 6.30pm.

Please bring blankets or low-backed chairs.

Hannah Dyson: Landscape and Fairytale
 

Hannah Dyson studied Illustration at Brighton University and then the Royal College of Art. Since working as a freelance illustrator her clients have included The Idler, The Guardian, The Independent and BBC Publishing. 

She has lived in Stroud, Gloucestershire for the last eight years and has fallen in love with the rolling hills and mysterious valleys which surround the town. She’s currently an artist in residence at Prema, the wonderful Arts Centre based in a converted chapel in nearby Uley.

Using ink, brushes and Rotring pens Hannah draws her elements and textures, then assembles, cuts and colours via a graphic, multi-layered digital image. She has a passion for paper collaging and drawing with shapes. Her inspirations include the work of Maurice Sendak, Edward Gorey, Richard Scarry and Tove Jansson. She is also fascinated by fairytales and folk legends, and her images sometimes hint at darker, other-worldly goings on the deep woods beyond the sun-dappled fields.
