The first in a series of events celebrating art, music, food and drink at Much Wenlock’s Raven hotel and restaurant takes place on Thursday 28 March. The inaugural show featuring Tyler and Willis (local artists Jenny Tyler and Jemima Willis) focuses on a theme that’s central to the venue’s cuisine: ‘Fish’.
Jenny says, “Fish plays such a key part in the Raven Marketplace and in itself brings people to the market, sharing recipes, getting their favourite or trying something new.”
Both artists’ work revolves around nature, and they have created a range of pieces to reflect the natural environment, as encapsulated in the brief ‘riverbank to the sea’. Jenny’s wire works include a giant eagle owl that may soar overhead while an otter, rat and mouse and fox emerge from their habitat along the riverbank. Jemima’s expertise in printing techniques allow her to create unique images of great beauty and diversity.
Chef Jani will create a range of dishes inspired by the same theme; the Raven’s Kirk says, “Jani’s menu will offer a combination of classics and creative and innovative dishes using the resources of our Marketplace.”
