Once again, The Colloquy in Lyonshall, is set to be transformed into an art gallery, presenting an eclectic Christmas exhibition in aid of St Michael's Hospice.

Some of the finest artists and makers in the Marches will be contributing to the show, with 20 per cent of all sales, together with donations, income from refreshments and a raffle featuring several pieces of original art and craft as prizes, will be donated to the hospice.

Among those exhibiting are Jill Barneby, an experienced printmaker specializing in etching, lino cut and screenprint, Jason Braham, who takes inspiration from traditional country ware to make salt-glazed stoneware pottery for use, and his wife Julienne, whose paintings, she says "are essentially celebratory, an expression of empathy with the subject, a distillation of visual impression and inner feeling."

They are joined by, among others, Simon Dorrell, co-creator of the garden at Bryan's Ground and art editor of Hortus magazine, who has exhibited regularly at Glyndebourne Opera and in 2004 was one of ten distinguished artists (including David Hockney) commissioned to produce a painting to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the new opera house. Also on the line-up are ceramicists Gill Tennant Eyles, Corinna Kenyon Wade and Shannon Donovan, painter Ciara Lewis, transplanted from Ireland to the Welsh borders in Knighton; wood carver Paul Cayton and basket maker Jenny Pearce; potter Tony Hall, and his partner, painter Lois Hopwood.

There will also be work from artists Peter Horrocks, Alison MacGregor Grimley, Kate Morgan Clare, Helena Orlowski, Helga Powell, Laura Rowlatt, Susannah Royle Lester, Jane Keay, Victoria Keeble, Peter Stilwell, Andrew Stilwell, Pearl Taylor and Brontë Woodruff, who has organised this year's art extravaganza.

The preview of Art at The Colloquy's Christmas Exhibition is on Tuesday, November 27 from 6.30pm to 9.30pm, when there is a chance to view the work on show and enjoy a short reading at 7.30pm by poet Meg Cox. The exhibition is then open on Wednesday, November 28 (10.30am to 9pm) and Thursday, November 29 (10.30am to 2pm).
