Claire is a silent witness to the awe-inspiring, passionate beauty of areas of our world that most of us can rarely, if ever, visit. Claire takes us on a journey to icy, cold, immense landscapes and to the beauty of nature in our islands and close to her home in South Shropshire.
The exhibition is open from Saturday 25 November until 27 January 2018.
The opening weekend, 25/26 November, coincides with the Ludlow Medieval Christmas Fayre. We will be open both days from 10am, with mulled wine and delicious frangipani mince pies being served from the Local Produce cafe on the ground floor. In the market square, 2-5pm on Saturday, there will be Santa's grotto, carol singing and a ceremony to turn on the Christmas lights. We will have cards, prints and gift vouchers for sale in the gallery. So, bring the family for a fun family day.
The exhibition will then be open Wednesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm, except we will be closed from 25 December to 2 January.
Claire will talk about her work at the Photo Space on
Wednesday, 10 January 2018, 6-7:30 pm, and
Wednesday, 17 January 2018, 6-7:30 pm.
Space is limited so please phone (0300 900 0290) or email (email@example.com) to book seats.

PHOTOGRAPHY AS A LIFELINE
We announced on 23 September that we are setting up a charity to help people with mental health, physical and age-related difficulties. This has come about because we have heard many personal stories, including from well-known photographers, about the therapeutic effect of photography on their lives. Photography is a lifeline for many who need something to occupy them, to focus the mind, to get out of the house, to meet others and to get pleasure from a rewarding hobby.
The aim of the charity is to use photography to help people with these issues. We are busy setting up the charity and are delighted by the response we have received. Many have expressed interest in volunteering to help and old or surplus photographic equipment has been donated. We believe we can make a difference. Progress and more information will be in our Newsletter.
If you are interested in taking part or know of people who may benefit please email us. Thank you.
MARTIN PARR entertained a packed house at Ludlow Assembly Rooms on Saturday 23 September 2017. He talked about his work and career, he was interviewed on stage by Jim Hawkins of BBC Radio Shropshire, and he awarded prizes to ten winners he had chosen from over 300 entries to our 'Social Documentary' Photography Competition.
Colin Howard won the first prize, a £1,000 Fujifilm X-T20 camera system sponsored by LCE, Hereford, and Fujifilm.
Martin, an underwhelmed Colin, and Neil McShane of LCE Hereford.
All ten winning images and other photos of the event can be seen here.
