THE Red House Glass Cone in Wordsley is showcasing work by three Black Country artists until early August.

All three artists have vastly different styles which have been inspired by nature, portraits and collograph prints.

The Trio exhibition features work by former Birmingham University tutor Anne Hackett, Wolverhampton University graduate Clare Sherwen and Oldbury based artist Chris Taplee - who paints under the name of Kris Whoosh.

Anne Hackett specialises in acrylic, watercolour and collaged images of plants and flowers. Her work is inspired by her own garden which she occasionally opens to the public.

Clare Sherwen has a degree in fine art and her collographs tend to concentrate on old ruins, castles and abbeys.

Chris Taplee specialises in portraiture. Working mainly in acrylic and oils, he derives his muses from the world of music and film, painting those who have inspired him.

The free exhibition runs until August 3.

Opening times are from10am to 4pm, Monday to Sunday.
