Jen Gash, Sky Landscape Artist of the Year 2018, exhibits sketches and paintings showing the Macedonian landscape where Stanley Spencer served.

Jen’s prize was a commission from the Imperial War Museum to create a painting of the Kosturino ridge in Macedonia; the site of a significant battle in December 1915.

Jen travelled to Macedonia in the autumn of 2018 and her finished painting is hanging in the Imperial War Museum, North. Jen created many other pieces of work as part of her trip and this unique exhibition provides new “eyes” into the landscape of Macedonia, old and new, as she followed in the footsteps of Stanley Spencer.

The Second Battle of Newbury, 1644

Wednesday 16th October 2019 | 7-8pm | West Berkshire Museum

This talk by Dr. Christopher Scott will focus upon the campaign and battle that saw the Royalist army defending northern Newbury against the combined Parliamentarian forces of Essex, Waller and Manchester, and where the first Civil War could so easily have been brought to a dramatic early end with the capture of the King. Dr. Christopher L Scott is a military historian, battlefield guide and retired Director of Education at the Royal Armouries.
