Barbara and I ventured into Cranford country on Thursday.We headed for the Heritage Centre to visit the Altrincham Branch Exhibition. We were warmly greeted By Diane and I was delighted to see her delicate landscapes.
We were happy to see the “old faithfuls”, the rainbow squares. Diane explained that only half of them were up this time so members of Altrincham must have worked really hard!!! They were arranged around another members piece and together made an impressive show.
Another co incidence was that the Knutsford Tapestry had also been rehung. 2000 people had been involved in the making and must be very proud of their work.It would take many hours to look at every individual building.
Back to Altrincham, their work was quite traditional , which certainly suited me.This piece by Sandra had been highly commended at Harrogate last year and this was her piece based on a Journey and completed at Summer School earlier this year.
Thank you Altrincham for mounting this exhibition and giving me an excuse to visit such a pretty location. There are a few days left , if you have a free afternoon.
