Equestrian Art at Weston Park Study Day

Weston Park, the stately home on the Shropshire \ Staffordshire border is hosting a special study day with equestrian artists Alison Wilson and Glynis Mills.

The study day will celebrate the equestrian importance throughout the history of Weston Park – with a particular focus on the significance within the world famous Art Collection.

The day will include a private guided tour of the House led by Curator & Head of Learning of the Weston Park Foundation, Gareth Williams, providing guests with the opportunity to be part of a very special viewing of Weston’s magnificent collection. The tour will not only look at the fine artworks but also silverware and other objects that celebrate the Earls of Bradford and their ancestor’s interest in the equestrian ceremonial, turf and hunting exploits.

Alison Wilson and Glynis Mills will be talking about the technical aspects of their work and techniques employed to achieve their stunning pieces. Their exhibition ‘Two Viewpoints’ will be exhibiting in the Granary Art Gallery throughout May.

The study day will take place on Monday 8th May 2017.

Tickets include morning refreshments, a two-course lunch, lectures, a private view of Glynis Mills and Alison Wilson’s exhibition in the Granary Art Gallery and a Curator-led private tour of the House.

Tickets cost £60 per person.

BSAT members and Society of Equestrian Artists members and associates are entitled to a discounted ticket price of £52 per person.
