‘Art is alive in Somerset’

Hanger's Choice winner Lana Bird with her piece, 'Bird in the Bush'.

The Fernvale Photography Group held a private exhibition opening on Friday night, March 1, at the Lowood Lions’ Open Door Gallery.

Gallery coordinator and Lowood Lions president Yvonne Hawkins officially opened the exhibition.

“We have a wonderful Fernvale Photography Group exhibition and it really shows that art is alive in Somerset, I think,” she said.

“Over the 18 months or so that we’ve been open we’ve had local artists exhibiting and I think it’s really amazing.

“I’d really like to thank Fernvale Photography Group for having your exhibition here and I hope it’s a wonderful and successful month for you.”

The exhibition featured some surprising pieces alongside beautiful shots of landscapes, wildlife, flowers, sunrises, sunsets and more.

Congratulations goes to photographer Lana Keen, who won the Hanger’s Choice award for her piece ‘Bird in the Bush’.

The exhibition will run until the end of March.

Gallery open times are Thursday 9.30am-12.30pm, Saturday and Sunday 9.30am-2.00pm, and photographers will be in attendance over the weekends.
