Two influential artists - one of whom is the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire - will be exhibiting their work in a St Albans gallery throughout October.

Meet the Artists at Gallery 105 in Victoria Street will showcase the work of Dione, Lady Verulam, and her friend and fellow artist Virginia Corbett.

Dione Verulam, who is the Queen’s representative in Herts, is inspired by her travels and surroundings and her latest collection of work is based on both the history of St Albans and the views.

She works from her studio at Gorhambury and previous exhibitions of her work have been held in central London galleries, The current exhibition is the first to show a complete collection of St Albans-inspired original works including collage and linocut prints.

Virginia Corbett works mainly in oils from her studio at the family farm in Redbourn, starting from drawings using pencils and charcoals before painting over it.

She has held several exhibitions in London, Suffolk and abroad and has been exhibited in the Royal Acadamy Summer Exhibition.

At Gallery 105, she will be showing abstract landscapes, florals and life drawings on paper and canvas.
