About Park People

Park People is a show of paintings by Juliet Henderson. The artworks in this show represent the first in an ongoing series originally inspired by pandemic walks in Florence Park.

The uniqueness of the people she encounters in the park and the activities they engage in captivate her. At the same time, she is aware of how these integral parts of our local communities, home to so many magical personal and group moments, are under threat in a world of funding cuts.

Henderson is especially happy to share her ongoing work in the peaceful environment of St Mary and St Nicholas Church in Littlemore – a church open to both its local community and the arts.

You are warmly invited to view the works on display, attend one of the related events, and perhaps write down your stories of what your local park means to you in a book to record these.
