Wessex Places Exhibition in Wiltshire Heritage Museum, Devizes

Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes has an excellent exhibition entitled Wessex Places which runs until 2 January, so there are just a few days left to see it.
As you can see from the poster, it features work by David Inshaw, Dave Gunning, Ray Ward and Rob Pountney.
I went along to the Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes by bus  last Saturday to have a look at Ray Ward's work in particular, and was so impressed with the print depicting Marlborough College grounds that I bought it. Here it is:
 I love the trees, and the way other aspects are depicted. Close runner up was the Mound at Marlborough College seen below:
 This, another depiction of the Mound is also glorious

 These David Inshaw prints were also stunning
 The John Piper stained glass window at one end of the gallery is a celebration of things in Wiltshire.

 After looking at the exhibition, a group of us went to the Bear for lunch, and emerged as it was getting dark, the fountain  looked majestic at dusk.

 And on the way home, we managed to sit in the front seat!!
 Devizes is a jewel nestling in the Wiltshire countryside, a short distance along the road from Avebury, there are so many beautiful buildings, I'm going to visit again soon.
