Boxmoor Trust

Gordon Beningfield Exhibition
14th – 16th September 2018
In September the Trust will be hosting a prestigious exhibition featuring the art of the late Gordon Beningfield.

A well-known local artist, Gordon’s love of the countryside and wildlife found expression in his wealth of paintings and drawings. 2018 is the twentieth anniversary of Gordon’s untimely death at the age of 61, and a series of exhibitions is being held in the local area in commemoration. The exhibition at The Box Moor Trust Centre will be free to attend – look out for further details in our summer issue.

Competitors may interpret the theme, “The Box Moor Trust: Colours of the Seasons”, in any way they choose. All photographs must have been on, or of, Box Moor Trust land. The closing date is 11th August 2018.
