A Ledbury art gallery has reopened its doors with art historian Sir Roy Strong as the guest of honour at the ceremony.

The Take 4 Gallery, located at 30 The Homend, celebrated its reestablishment with a special event on February 1.

Sir Roy, former director of the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Ledbury resident, showed his admiration for the newly reopened venue.

The art historian said he 'loved the gallery' and the way it 'sat between the shops in the heart of the town and contained such an eclectic mix of pieces'.

He added: "I love the energy and the feeling of this place.

"This is something special, it’s absolutely marvellous and inspiring. I wish it enormous luck."

Originally established by painter Caroline H Green in 2019, it's now managed by a collective of local artists and creatives.

The gallery, showcasing a variety of works for sale, from paintings to wood turning, opened its doors to patrons from Monday to Saturday, 10am - 5pm.

Works range in price, with pieces available from £10.
