Most of all, come and have fun and enjoy the Gap Festival 2018.
At Chocolate Cafe Goring we have some of the beautiful art on display on our first floor. Denny Webb has a number of pictures which you may buy if you wish or simply enjoy in relaxed surroundings. Other artists are also featured.
Denny’s website says “Denny is an intuitive, experimental artist who works in Wallingford, Oxfordshire, she is well known for her luminous watercolour paintings using many contemporary techniques which she also loves to share with her students to help inspire them to step out of their comfort zones and re-connect with their creative selves.

Denny has worked and studied in the U.S.A. where she has established a large client base and won numerous awards in national shows, in addition she has paintings in private collections in America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the U.K.,she is also a member of the prestigious Oxford Art Society.”
We asked Denny whether she could add a little more about her philosophy and this is what she said. “I am inspired by nature…the changing seasons, the light on the land, an owl in silent flight, the majesty of trees and I try to capture the emotional response on paper or canvas.
It is my belief that there is an artist in everyone and it’s my job as a teacher to help students to step out of their comfort zones and reconnect with their creative selves, to dig deep and enjoy walking the path of the artist.”
To which we say…Wow! Perhaps it’s time to dig out my inner artist?
Local artists and craftspeople open their own studios or display their work in central community spaces.
Walk the trail on foot or cycle around and take in some interesting facts from heritage sites along the way.
The art map is available at The Village Cafe/Chocolate Cafe Goring and from many locations in the villages. Or you can just pop into any of the studios where they will be freely available or visit the main GAP Festival Website.
