A studio in Barley will open its doors to the public as part of a countywide month-long exhibition.
Among the artists showcasing their work as part of the Hertfordshire Visual Arts open studios month will be retired art education lecturer Gordon Shaw, who focuses on coastal scenes and uses a range of materials in his work, including oil, acrylic, mixed media and monoprints.
He said: “Landscape painting for me is about responding to the place and the world we see at the time we are there.
“It’s not about trying to record the topography faithfully – we can use photography for that.”
Gordon’s work will be put on show at Burloes Farm Studios in Barley Road.
