1–28 February 2019, Riverside Country Park, ME7 2XH

Maria has a long-standing relationship with orchards, ever since she moved into a house that backed onto an orchard in the village of Teynham, where Richard Harrys, fruiterer to Henry VIII, established the first cherry orchards in England. Maria is now living in Gillingham, close to Rainham Community Orchard. She was delighted to be part of a year-long project with other artists, chronicling a year in the orchard.

The Orchard exhibition takes place in January and February 2019. Click on the poster for details. Please check with the venues for opening times.

Maria’s pamphlet of poems on the disappearing orchards of Kent, with images by Sara Fletcher, is available exclusively from Cultured Llama Publishing for £7 plus p&p: There are Boats on the Orchard
