Apple Day Preparations...

Apple Day (I)
oil on canvas, 5th October 2011

First of a new series celebrating Apple Day, officially October 21st, but will be on Saturday 22nd here in Cromford, much better for families to join in with apple pressing, games and general apple-based mayhem! 
This event  highlights the need to protect older trees and orchards as both habitats and
producers of heritage or heirloom apples and encourage the growing of less widely
known varieties .
The local independent bookshop, Scarthin Books, has supported Apple Day with
its own celebrations including apple pressing outside on the Promenade at Cromford
for some years.  This year for the first time they are inviting local artists to display their
work there a la Rive Gauche!
Any sales I make will include a 20% donation to
Common Ground.
