MUSIC & ART at Snape Maltings
Throughout April you can see two great local artists at Snape Maltings.
Ania Hobson has a studio just a few minutes from the maltings. Her recent work has been selected for the 2017 BP Portrait Awards, and her animal portraits and Suffolk landscapes are expected to generate a great deal of interest. Ania will attend the preview on March 31. The exhibition runs in the Maltings Gallery until April 27.
From April 7 until May 4 Woodbridge-based illustrator Brie Harrison will also be in the gallery. This is a new collection of her work and the fruits of an exclusive project, based on the flora and fauna of the Snape countryside and marshes. You can meet Brie on Saturday April 7.
