WEST Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin last week visited a Malvern gallery which features artwork celebrating the local countryside.

Mrs Baldwin Harriett met Alan Brown, who runs the Original Artwork Store in Graham Road, Malvern, as well as restoring old paintings, and local artist Antony Bridge, whose work is on display at the gallery.

The oil paintings, which feature views of the Malvern Hills, are being displayed as part of the Autumn in Malvern festival which starts next month.

Mrs Baldwin said: “We are so lucky to have such beautiful scenery across Worcestershire which is inspiration to so many artists – from Edward Elgar to the current generation of artists.

“Alan’s gallery shows some of the best contemporary art and is a wonderful celebration of Malvern and its stunning scenery.”
