MYLOR artist Jan Robson will be exhibiting a collection of new artwork at Enys House, near Penryn, on Saturday and Sunday.

Enys Garden is well known for its breathtaking display of bluebells and the Bluebell Festival will run until May 11 when Parc Lye will be a mass of blue.

The house and garden has been described as "Cornwall's best-kept secret" and the unspoilt 30-acres is part of the Enys Estate, considered to be the oldest garden in Cornwall and well worth a visit.

As an added attraction, an elite collection of artists will be displaying their artwork over the weekend, in the grand house. This is a unique opportunity to see within the main house, while in the throes of restoration to its former glory. Delicious home-baked cakes and tea are available in the café. Dogs are welcome on a lead.

Jan will be displaying some large sea and landscape paintings.

"The impressive rooms of this grand house will be perfect for showing off these large, moody canvases," she said.

"This is a magnificent opportunity to show big pieces of work in an atmospheric setting."

The gardens will be open from 11am to 5pm daily over the festival week with the addition of the open house at the weekend. Directions are displayed from Penryn or view www.enysgardens.org.uk for further details. Jan can be contacted on 01326 375252 or see www.janrobsonart.co.uk
