Joanna’s Christmas Exhibition

I am excited to announce my next show on Saturday 2nd December 10am to 5pm at my lovely converted Methodist Chapel in Keevil, Wilts. This is to present the progress on my forthcoming book “The Hare in the Moon” which I am looking forward to showing the beautiful, intricate new Gold Borders and Drawings but also to view other work with the potential to purchase Limited Edition Prints and Original Paintings at reduced prices for Xmas whilst enjoying a glass of wine. I’d love to see you on the day and would ask If you could be so kind as to let me know if you will be attending so that I am aware of the approximate numbers but even if you haven’t advised please feel free to turn up on the day. Parking will be in the field behind the house which is accessed through the drive of our Chapel House. I really look forward to hearing from you and seeing you.   If you wish to print out the invite, you can download a copy here: Joanna May’s Christmas Exhibition Invite
