As well as the three generous donations recently received (Jean Blunsdon painting, Nancy Homer bowl and John and Sue Sneddon jug), the Museum dipped into its New Acquisitions Fund and bought this oil painting by Gwen Clay of Higher Bal painted from Hill Head by the entrance to Vineyard Lane and looking down towards the village. It is an unusual subject for Gwen and in very muted, misty shades. It will make a most interesting contrast with the Museum’s “The Road to Higher Bal” by Phyllis Chubb, from the other direction.
Without the generous donations to our New Acquisitions Fund we would not be able to buy something like this. Thank you.
