On Friday I head for The Shire, to hang my six wee prints at Dean Heritage Centre where they'll remain until late February along with my brother, James Thorne's, beautiful large-format photographs. The show officially opens on Saturday - you need to pay to get into the museum but it's well worth it. The Heritage Centre has five acres of land full of all things Forest; as well as the art gallery there are 5 more galleries and 2000 artefacts telling the story of the Forest from the Ice Age up to the present day, indoor and outdoor activity trails, a Victorian schoolroom, Charcoal Burner's Camp and Forester's cottage (my faves when I was little), two beautiful Gloucester Old Spot piggies, chickens and rabbits, plus ferret walking if you go on a sunny day during the week! There's also a cafe which serves hot and cold food, cakes and drinks.

All framed pieces will be for sale from the gallery, with further editions available directly from James or me. You can find more info on the museum at deanheritagecentre.com and keep up to date on my Facebook and Twitter pages. Hopefully see you there!
