Opening Exhibition at Dover Castle

It was fantastic to open John Burrow's art exhibition at Dover Castle on Saturday evening. The exhibition contained landscapes of local landmarks, including scenes from Dover, Deal and Walmer Castles. John, a local artist based in Deal, showed me examples of his work which were inspired in the local area.

The exhibition was held in partnership with English Heritage to showcase the best examples of local art. He fantastically depicts our local area and landmarks. So much of what it means to be British is tied up in our white cliffs and in our castles in Dover, Deal and Walmer. I thank John and English Heritage in putting this event on and letting local people see them in all their glory in these paintings.

I like John's work so much I have even used his paintings for my own Christmas cards. I urge anyone to come down to see the paintings for themselves.
