VISITS to county nature reserves reinvigorated a city artist’s love of wild orchids for an exhibition.

Jane Strother’s Ordinary Landscapes will run at the 03 Gallery at Oxford Castle until November 11.

The Headington resident said she was struck by the visual power of orchids when visiting Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust reserves.

The 56-year-old adult art teacher said: “The whole sense of the piece is to portray the agility of the habitat.”
