An exhibition of work by a group of artists including painters, potters and jewellery makers.

Green Door Artists exhibition at the Merz Barn, Chapel Stile, September /October 2017

An exhibition of 2- and 3-d work by Green Door Studio artists, inspired either by the Kurt Schwitters’ Merz Barn estate or by his work. Frances & I each submitted work, having spent some time exploring this rather strange world.

On the right are some examples of Schwitters’ work.
