Art fit for a museum wall

Today is World Art Day, and it's a fantastic opportunity for us to recognise the part art plays in life in our villages. Across Audley there are many art groups who meet regularly to hone their artistic efforts. Mrs Micklethwait, an owner at Audley Binswood, has rediscovered her creative passion since moving to Audley.

The benefits of creating and looking at art are far-reaching. It's not just about reigniting creation passion or breathing life into neglected sites. Art can also support brain health and cognitive function.

Before a new Audley village opens we work with local galleries and museums to bring forgotten paintings out of the archives and back to walls.

Here is just a flavour of the art displayed in our retirement villages. If you would like to see them, you’re welcome to join us in our bistros and restaurants when we reopen.

Art at Audley Stanbridge Earls

Henry Moore – The Coming Storm (Framed painting on the left, below)

Born into a family of painters, Moore focused his initial paintings on landscapes and seascapes, before moving onto the marine work.

Richard Ernst Eurich - The wreck of the Herzogin Cecilie (Framed painting on the right, below)

British painter Eurich specialised in atmospheric landscapes and beaches and this painting named ‘The Wreck of the Herzogin Cecilie’ is no different.

Art at Audley Cooper’s Hill

Peter Stockbridge – Fishing boats at Rye

Fishing Boats at Rye is a bright interpretation of daily fishing life, a perfect accompaniment to our bar and bistro at Audley Cooper’s Hill.
