High Sheriff celebrates local Art!


By 2021 Joanna Hilditch

On the 23rd June the High Sheriffs took a visit to Herefordshire College of Art, to take in the incredible pieces in their exhibition.
Fine Art: as a visually impaired artist, Lenny Jordan describes his daily journey from his perspective and that of his guide dog. The complicated relationship with Time expressed beautifully in ceramics and demonstrating the tactility of his visually impaired world. @lennyjordanenterprise
There were themes of women’s place in society including misogyny, feminism, objectification and empty nest syndrome. Chloe Wheater’s work “Aren’t Women Wonderful?” was a provocative piece of work @chloewheaterart
The textile work all followed a theme of sustainability. Challenging and re-imagining the role of textiles across modern life tge range of work was amazing. This “Rhythm and Regeneration” in British wool reflected the designer’s own life – running, moving, breathing. @milliemorgan_textiles
The graphic designers seemed all job ready and @c.kamphausen clean lines were one example of expertise.
The illustrative work of @sophie_dainty was based around ‘small acts of kindness can help solve huge problems’ And @olliechilds_art focussed on men’s mental health and the blurred lines between social media’s body image and the reality.
All brilliant and the other 60 artists whose work I saw last week. What a fabulous place to study these disciplines. No need to travel – wonderful Hereford. Visit Herefordshire Go to Instagram to see full linked collection to artists.
