It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Graham Arnold, a significant British artist who was a founder member of the Brotherhood of Ruralists. He and his wife Ann Arnold were highly respected artists who chose to live and work in Shropshire where they worked from their cottage in Chapel Lawn. They supported their community and neighbouring artists, and enjoyed exhibiting for many years at the Silk Top Hat gallery in Ludlow and more recently with fellow Ruralist Annie Ovenden at Twenty Twenty Gallery.
Graham was a man of dignity, a great storyteller. His bright eyes would light up a room. He will be missed.
The funeral and burial of Graham Arnold will be held on
Monday 1 April at 12 noon in St Mary’s Church in Chapel Lawn, SY7 0BW.
At Graham’s request, no flowers please, and preferably,
please do not wear black,as Graham delighted in colour.
The Church will be open all morning for private prayer before the service.
Car parking at the Village Hall or on the roadside and in front of the church.
Light refreshments will be served after the service at the village hall next to the church,
facilities also available here throughout the day.
If you wish to make a donation in memory of Graham to the Camphill Charity you may do so by cash or cheque at the church.
