The Dragonfly House, easily identified by the huge dragonfly sculpture clinging to the wall, is celebrating twenty years as a major player in the AOH event. Artists and collectors Angie Meaden-Bonnel and Marc Bonnel are joined by friends all inspired by the theme of nature and the British countryside.

Enter downstairs via the smart kitchen, into the conservatory and courtyard then upstairs to enjoy the full show. Angie Meaden-Bonnel works in golden ink on black backgrounds to create her timeless landscapes, including the elegant and enigmatic “The Old Way.” Litterbug Mark Oliver’s fantastical insect creatures and Linsey Oliver’s country scenes using poetry, text, trees and skies add a striking 3D element to the show.

Standing stones, landscape, living things … all the natural inspiration for this highly recommended event.
