Exhibitions from both Northampton Embroiderers’ Guild and Creative Coverage Group are in place at Sulgrave Manor throughout August.

The group exhibition provides a wide range of work by artists Alan Perriman, Peter Thwaites, Claire Gill, Frances Bildner and Susan Thomson. Alan Perriman is artist-in-residence at the manor and his work, which revolves a lot around a water-meadow on the banks of the Thames, can be seen in the Buttery and bought in the shop.

Peter Thwaites has lived and worked for most of his life in Cornwall painting landscapes, seascapes, coasts, creeks and many botanical subjects.

Claire Gill specialises in limited edition, fine art prints and greeting cards. Frances Bildner paints from her imagination and much of her work stems from her subconscious. Susan Thomson is a botanical artist who studied botanical drawing and watercolour at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

During August, the historic house is open 11am-4pm Tuesday to Sunday.Visitors are welcome to join a tour (normal fees apply) and enjoy light lunches, homemade cream teas, cakes, tea and coffee in the Buttery.

Entry to the exhibitions is free. For more information, see
