56 Paintings in the Corridor Gallery at the Central Library- can that be possible?

This exhibition entitled 'Setting Out from Swindon'  of oil paintings  by Jane Milner-Barry.
 Many are done on site, and strongly evoke the atmosphere of  where they were painted; from such diverse places as Wroughton allotments, Lydiard Park, Westonbirt Arboretum, Norfolk, Madrid, southern France and St. Margaret's Road in Swindon.
The Laurie Lee connotation in the title express a passion for capturing something of the essence of a place which makes the paintings delightful, do go and have a look.
 The exhibition is in the corridor at the back of the Central Library behind the cafe area, leading to the former Reference Library.

 Me wondering how much longer we are going to be.
