The High Sheriff of Shropshire has paid a special visit to one of the region’s most historic homes to view a stunning art exhibition.

Mandy Thorn MBE DL visited the Rose Paterson Art Gallery at Weston Park, on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border to see the October exhibition ‘Art for All Reasons’ by the Wolverhampton Society of Artists.

The society is an established group of professional and amateur artists who work in a wide range of styles and media. Their artists are recognised locally, nationally and internationally.

Gareth Williams, Curator and Head of Learning at Weston Park, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed the High Sheriff of Shropshire to the Rose Paterson Art Gallery to view October’s exhibition.

“The exhibition includes artworks made with various types of media including digital, textile and conceptual art alongside the traditional pursuits of painting, sculpture, ceramics and printmaking.

“During her visit, the High Sheriff had the opportunity to talk to Keith Oram, the President of the Wolverhampton Society of Artists, alongside talking to other artists about their work, their inspiration and the techniques used to create their pieces of art.

“The exhibition will be available to view in the Rose Paterson Art Gallery until October 31.”

The Rose Paterson Art Gallery at Weston Park is open from 11am-4pm daily and is free of charge to enter with a different exhibition each month.
