The artwork, featured below, was created by Val for the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital (FoEH) Virtual Art Exhibition 2020.
She condensed the scenes depicted on the Bayeux Tapestry from 58 down to just 8, which was the maximum number of entries allowed. Telling the story of the invasion of England in 1066 by William the Conqueror, all the pictures are pen & ink drawings, mounted and framed, 15.5″ x 12.5″ in size.
Due to covid-19 the annual art exhibition was held online.
Happily for 2021 the Art Exhibition is able again to use it’s regular venue at St Andrew’s Prep School, Meads, Eastbourne. It will take place on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th October from 10am to 4pm.
Exhibitors are allowed to enter just four pictures. Val has decided to show some of her Bayeux Tapestry prints. An on-line exhibition is better than no exhibition but to be able to display our artwork in a live setting again has been much anticipated.
Further scenes will be added in due course. Enquiries about the Bayeux Tapestry Collection should be directed to email@example.com
