 Until taken over in 2016 and a more modern set of artists, Piers was fully represented here.

But he has a bin-load (NOT a rubbish bin Ha Ha!) of Seascape and some landscape etchings and two 'important' good sized  Oils

Highgate 'Village' is delightful with good cafes and restaurants not not anywhere near stockbroker/barrister prices - and Waterlow Park a bout 100 metres down towards Archway opposite the gallery.

Kenwood House and Hampstead Heath are easily walkable if you head west a few hundred metres on the road towards Kentish Town, turn right down Merton Road and go past the delightful bathing 'ponds' .

If coming from quite a few miles away from Highgate, the tube at ARCHWAY on the Barnet line of this Northern Line is very fast. You can then  bus the minute up the hill, or walk it  (uphill) in five minutes.

He may be asked to do a short talk at the Preview about the making of one etchings from each of his books - from A SHROPSHIRE LAD (1988), AN ELEGY IN ARCADY (1990), WILLIAM WORDSWORTH: A LAKELAND ANTHOLOGY (1991) WENSLEYDALE (1994), his veritable magnum opus THE GLORIOUS TREES OF GT BRITAIN ((2002), SONNETS FOR A SIREN (unpublished, written and illustrated in2008, and 2017/18's LA ROUTE DES VIOLETTES.
