'Stop and take a moment to really look'
Exhibition by artist Lisa Miles
16th May - 21 June 2015
Taurus Crafts proudly presents an exhibtion of Lisa Miles oil paintings.
Lisa recently moved here and we were lucky enough to have her visit us, as a local destination. The description of her work informs us of how she sees the world and entices us in, to take a look.
Lisa explains, "A dear friend once said to me."
“Every now and again, just stop and take a moment to really look.”
"Over the years I have remembered and followed this piece of advice and now I do it automatically. Not just when I want to paint, but in everyday life. When you really look, there is so much more to see. Just by taking that moment to stop, you can really see what’s all around you. The Poppies ‘waving’ to us as we drive past, the trees ‘wrapping’ us up in a comforting blanket, or a quick 'reassuring glimpse’ across the Severn. Our journey through everyday life takes us past things, which should always be admired and never taken for granted."
These works have been inspired by her journey through the Forest, through the seasons, and through her day.

Since Bubbledogs in Mayfair developed it's swanky Hot Dog and Champagne Bar in 2012 the UK went hot dog crazy two years ago, Native Breeds, as a well as supplying Bubbledogs, have been leading the way in supplying posh dogs across the UK. So, with James McCrindle picking up just about every award in 2014 for his Loiterpin Methode Champenoise Perry, we are having our very own local hot dog and fizz celebration. A platter of Native Breed’s dogs, all the sides and a glass of Loiterpin fizz £10.00 per person. Paid for per serving thereafter.
Good food and drink, sourced and made locally and served by the producers themselves. Held in the Taurus garden marquee so that you will be dry if it rains and if the sun shines we have the garden to mingle in. Whatever the weather does there will be a roaring brazier keeping the food hot, plenty of it! and a host of beverages for all tastes to wash it down. We do lots of extras, vegetarians are well catered for, so too ceoliacs and children.
