The Stratford Gallery - Spring 2020

The Stratford Gallery, spring 2020 exhibition.

Lockdown restrictions are being relaxed in England, but it's too early, the infection rate and deaths are still too high, and I think that the government is doing this for the wrong reasons. So, I have no intention of changing anything in my behaviour, not yet anyway, but I decided to make an exception with some galleries, as I have missed looking at art and ceramics, and felt that it would be as safe going to a gallery as going to the supermarket.

So, we went to Stratford last week and it was wonderful. We had a long walk by the river and then visited two galleries that exhibit ceramics. This one, featured a number of makers and I have taken photographs of some of the pieces I particularly liked.
