SEPTEMBER 2022 will see the WOODLANDERS 30th Exhibition.

September 10th until 25th 2022, to be held in Burley at the Village Hall, Pound Lane BH24 4EH.

Sadly last year, our 2020 exhibition was cancelled due to the autumn lockdown, and this year 2021 though we had intended to hold it, for numerous reasons we have decided to wait until 2022 to hold our special 30th exhibition on Saturday September 10th until Sunday September 25th inclusive in Burley.

In spite of the postponement all Woodlanders, including two new potters are working hard individually in their own studios and homes, beit paintings, pottery, woodcraft and jewellery, and have plenty of work to show.

Should you wish to see their lastest work check back here on the Woodlanders website or call 01425 40­2584 and we can put you in touch.

Here's to 2022

Daphne has a great empathy with the countryside, be it landscape, flora or fauna, and this has recently been extended to interiors. These interests are reflected in the varied subject matter that she paints. Several years ago she was invited to become a member of the Society of Women Artists, and is an active committee member of the Romsey Art Group. Her chosen medium is predominantly acrylics, although she is equally at ease with water colour and pen and wash.
At present Daphne is working freelance and has works published by various producers such as Royal Doulton, Staffordshire Potteries, J. Arthur Dixon, Hallmark, Waddingtons etc. Examples of her art are distributed internationally, and original paintings are in collections world-wide and also available in galleries in the south of England.
Despite the demand for finished artworks, Daphne has time to tutor students under the Adult Education umbrella and privately. She also gives demonstrations and runs workshops for art groups and weekend courses on produced for her students.
Daphne's genealogy is reported to extend back to a relationship to the great Sir Joshua Reynolds: indeed most generations of her ancestry included poets or painters. She started painting seriously herself when she gave up working in a bank to start a family, and once smitten by the success of her endeavours has become a prolific and dedicated artist spanning twenty years plus. Indeed there is nothing she likes more now than to paint, working mostly in her studio, although forays with the family (including dogs) into the countryside are never taken without sketchpads, paints and cameras.
