Moon Rainbow exhibits
Here are some of the exhibits from this years exhibition at the Weavers Gallery in Ledbury. It is open until Sunday 10 July so if you are in the area do go and see it. Ledbury is a lovely market town with interesting shops and good places to eat. During the Poetry Festival there are chairs and sofas dotted around the town for people to sit and enjoy the festivities!
Many exhibitors were inspired by Robert Frost's poem Iris by Night and it was interesting to see such a wide range of interpretations.
Anne Weldon's Moon Shadow
Pauline Barnes's Malvern triptych - Sunlight, Twilight, Moonlight
Sue Hunt's Iris By Night
It was John Drinkwater's poem Daffodils that inspired Jill Exell to make Colour of Spring
Amanda Wright selected The Road not Taken by Robert Frost to inspire her piece of the same name
This beautifully detailed box, Life's Red Flood by Janet Grist  was influenced by Wilfrid Gibson's poem about Rupert Brooke
Winter Birches l and ll were made by Lesley Brankin and the poem Birches by Robert Frost inspired her design
Pea Brush was one of two dolls made by Marie Roper and inspired by the Dymock poets 

I'm afraid there isn't room to show all of the exhibits here but I hope this has given you a flavour of the exhibition. If you would like to read some of the poems that inspired the work then go to www.dymockpoets.co.uk
Speak to you soon
