Who could forget the evening of music which opened the Exhibition of Art in memory of Daphne Cartwright at the Redearth Gallery in Bickleigh on 7th September last year? (Follow this link for details.)

In the courtyard, David Sawyer's 'Chill Acoustic' provided an evening of wonderful music, with several visiting musicians joining in. (Clive Stevens, who played the flute and soprano saxophone so beautifully, will be special guest on 'Classical Journey' on Tuesday 19th March.)

Inside the Redearth Gallery was a spectacular display of work by many local artists, including David Sawyers impressive painted (and unpainted) sculptures - and the stunning tapestry work of Christine Sawyer. (See above - that's tapestry, not paint!)
