A NEW art exhibition inspired by the history of Croome Court has been unveiled at the historic Worcestershire property.

Artist in residence José Forrest-Tennant has been working on the Schemata exhibition for the past year after being awarded funding for the project from the Arts Council.

After being well-received by visitors, the exhibition will remain on display in the drawing room at the National Trust property, near Upton-upon-Severn, until at least the start of November.

José said her work was inspired by the “beauty and history” of Croome.

“The idea was to use the archive and the spaces at Croome and transform them into interesting and thought- provoking photographs and a projected installation,” she said. “I think I have achieved that and it’s great that the drawing room in the house can be used to show the exhibition at its best.”

Amy Forster, Croome’s visitor manager, said: “This is the second time that we have worked with an artist at Croome Court and we’re very pleased with the result.

“It has stopped everyone in their tracks as they wander through.”
