July Events at the Corinium Museum

Throughout July 2018

5 July – 29 July: Sian Summerhayes Exhibition
This exhibition is a collection of artwork by Sian Summerhayes featuring original paintings, giclee prints, hand-painted jewellery, homewares and hanging ornaments. Sian works on an array of surfaces including paper, wood, slate and fabric to create original pieces and prints as well as decorative and functional items for the home and to wear. Bright and busy, her style is cheerful, colourful and pattern-orientated, inspired by countryside scenes and homely interiors.  
Quirky depictions of birds and animals are a trademark of her work, combining a folky yet contemporary feel. Sian Summerhayes is a local artist living and working in the Stroud area of the Cotswolds.
