This exhibition combines the work of Helena Levett and Derrick Dunthorne.  There are two main strands to HL's art practice.  Life-like animal portraits and also expressive colourful portrait paintings.

Derrick Dunthorne has been making chairs by 'bodging' (green wood-working) for a number of years now.  Not only aesthetically satisfying they are surprisingly comfortable.  He teaches this traditional skill to people at his home.
