Stunning stonework by a Rasen artist takes centre stage at Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre this month.

The Lettering and Heraldry exhibition shows the work of John Shaw.

On display are painted texts, as well as photographs of a range of commissioned works, mostly inscriptions carved in stone, slate and marble.

Two of the larger pieces were completed this year - a 1914-1918 war memorial on Preston Railway Station and a six-foot square heraldic panel painted for the Royal College of General Practitioners headquarters in London.

“We are delighted to 
have John Shaw’s exhibition at the centre,” said exhibition organiser Sheila Broster.

“The sharp stone carvings show numerous ideas for 
using plaques around the 
home and garden as well as 
his major plaques seen in 
public places. A delightful exhibition.”

Admission to the exhibition, which is open until April 28, is free.

Also on April 28, John will be at the centre from 10am to 4pm to discuss the exhibition and proposed commissions.
