Sir George opened an Exhibition of work by Oakley artist Anne Ward at St Nicholas Church, Freefolk. He is shown here with Anne and her husband Barry.
"Anne's drawings were inspired by paintings of the Old Masters (and a few of the younger ones), which she drew directly onto transparency film the size of a slide, with permanent marker pens. Anne then used modern technology, namely her computer, scanner and video to enlarge, manipulate and print the drawings. This is the main source of her work for the exhibition."
Sir George also thanked the Church Conservation Trust for the use of St Nicholas Church, Freefolk to hold the Exhibition. He was presented with a print by Anne Ward after he declared the Exhibition Open.
