From 1 April to 30 June, Cogges Manor, Witney present their first ever Artist in Residence exhibition.

I have spent time at Cogges through the seasons, absorbing, mark making and sometimes drawing the meadow, trees and nature  observing the vegetation in the meadow, the woods and the garden in summer, seeking interesting light and shade, the tree structures devoid of leaves and the starkness of deepest winter. This year has changed the way I see Cogges. My memories were of the old farm museum that my own children visited 20 years ago. I want to thank Cogges and the Trustees for responding to my request to paint in the grounds with the offer of a residency and a venue for a solo show. I’m very excited about the exhibition and hope this first Cogges exhibition will inspire more artists to do the same.

Sally’s solo exhibition, entitled ‘Trace’, will be on show around the historic buildings and spaces of Cogges from 1 April to 30 June. Cogges and Sally’s exhibition will also be participating in Oxfordshire Art Week from 13 to 21 May.
