THE Gallery will host its last solo exhibition of the year from Monday (November 13) featuring work by Barbara Graham.

In and Around the Three Counties will be on show at the Worcester Road venue for three weeks.

Barbara studied at the Brighton College of Art in 1963 and then for three years at Leeds College of Art and Design, graduating with a Diploma in Furniture Design.

She spent several years with Design Workshop in Yorkshire and then the architects department of the London Borough of Hounslow.

She maintained her interest in art alongside family life, developing watercolour and mixed media techniques, and took a further foundation course at Hereford College of Art, studying painting.

"I get great pleasure from the countryside and enjoy visiting and painting local scenes and country houses," she said.

Membership of the Hereford Painting Club has enabled privileged access to many private estates.

She has exhibited at Shirehall, Hereford, during the Three Choirs Festival, at the Royal West of England Academy summer exhibition at Bristol, the Post Grad Medical Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, Ludlow and galleries around Herefordshire.

In 1986 she started a business to market her paintings and develop outlets for prints, cards, cutting boards and mats.
