Capturing the Countryside: a post-war perspective

This free exhibition brings together the work of four artists working in the 1950s and 1960s, each of whom adopted a distinctive approach to capturing the countryside. John Piper and Robert Tavener are renowned printmakers who produced vibrant and colourful representations of rural life and landscape. Rowland Suddaby caught a countryside undergoing dramatic change, a world of ponds, copses and winding lanes. Garrick Palmer’s dramatic style works with the flow of the landscape drawing out its geometry to challenge our everyday perception.


The exhibition will be held at the Chapel, a 300 year old Grade II listed building converted to provide an intimate gallery and located in the historic Herefordshire town of Bromyard. The Chapel can be found at 2 Forbury Chase, Sherford Street, HR7 4DL.


The exhibition will be open from Saturday 7th to Sunday 15th October: 11 am -5 pm (closed Monday and Tuesday, the Private View will take place on Friday 6th October, 6-8 pm).


A pop-up café will be open offering light refreshments.
