Artists of Sorauren Park Video Series

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Friends of Sorauren Park community group has commissioned a video series – Dogs of Sorauren Park, Trees of Sorauren Park, People of Sorauren Park and, most importantly, Artists of Sorauren Park.

The series also includes an interview with painter and longtime friend Michael Gerry.
