War Poppy Collection unveiled National Memorial Arboretum


An exhibition illustrating the suffering and sacrifice from the two World Wars has been unveiled at the National Memorial Arboretum.

Artist Jacqueline Hurley’s War Poppy Collection at the remembrance site in Alrewas features 41 individual works of art.

Ms Hurley said: “I love expressionist art, it frees people to interpret pieces in an enormous variety of ways, seeing different things because of their personal experiences.

“Although my paintings depict scenes of war, I consciously try to maintain a sense of peace throughout my work – recognising that peace is what we strive for and the many lives sacrificed in its pursuit.”

Signed prints and medallions featuring her artwork have raised tens of thousands of pounds for Armed Forces charities.

The exhibition runs until July 9, 2017, and entry is free.
