"Remembered" Michael Armstrong 12 March to 7 April 2018
Michael, who died in 2000, was poet and artist by inclination though he worked variously as a librarian, hotelier, restaurateur and - perhaps most surprisingly - a member of the mammals staff at Jersey Zoo. He is best known artistically as a poet whose work was set to music by the composer William Alwyn, but the exhibition of watercolours, gouaches, oils and mixed media work spoke of a man always looking to experiment and find new ways of self-expression on paper and canvas.
