Views of Stonehenge as it might have been go on show in Pewsey

AN EXHIBITION of the history of Stonehenge will be taking place at the McNeill Gallery in Pewsey.

Archaeological artist Peter Dunn will be exhibiting his Reconstruction Paintings of the Stonehenge Complex at the McNeill Gallery in Pewsey over the summer.

Mr Dunn’s series of reconstruction paintings of the historic landmark were produced from the findings of the Stonehenge Riverside Project between 2009 and 2013.

Beverley McNeill, owner of the gallery, said: “I opened the gallery late November last year and Peter came along. I told him to pop in and talk about an exhibition, I loved the concept of the Stonehenge artwork. The exhibition will have original sketches of the site and findings from the architectural dig he took part in.”

The exhibition will be a first for the gallery, with Mrs McNeill believing it will give an insight into the history of the area.

“I am excited about the exhibition, I thought it would be interesting as it is a historical insight into the area and for Wiltshire as a whole. Of course, in July we are hoping to catch tourists as well as people from the local area,” added Mrs McNeill.

Mr Dunn worked as an illustrator and artist with English Heritage from 1985 to 2007, and has been involved in interpretive projects throughout England as well as abroad, also working on a couple of programmes on the BBC.

A History of Stonehenge in Paintings will be taking place at McNeill Gallery in Market Place, Pewsey, from July 21st- August 6st 2016
