A Brush with Artists

Having had a run of musical and stage artistes staying at Hanover House #hanoverhouse, with notable cellists, an opera singer from the English Touring Opera, a stage manager for the Birmingham Royal Ballet and the odd actress, we have recently had some artistic connections.

The Kiss 1901-4 by Auguste Rodin 1840-1917

Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’

First, and the subject of the recent blog, we referred to Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’ currently on tour and residing a few hundred yards away in The Wilson art gallery/museum in Cheltenham. That was followed by the news of our favourite local artist Mila Furstova, who made our beautiful large Cheltenham Ladies’ College collage, who has just produced the album cover for Coldplay’s latest release ‘Ghost Stories’. Once again, a beautiful and detailed wings collage, which has been animated for an iTunes pre-release of the album. See it at  http://itunes.com/Coldplay.

Even more recently we have had a noted artist, Peter Layzell, stay with us. He is a talented artist, currently living in Morecambe, who has exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. An exhibition at the Fosse Gallery in Stow on the Wold brings him to this part of the world, where a friend of his, the artist Mick Graw, is the chief exhibitor.
