Art in The Gallery
THINGS WE DO – SIMON NIXON & SIAN PETERS
MON 21 MAY – SATURDAY 30 JUNE
An exhibition of work inspired by Ladybird book illustrations.
Featuring collages and paintings using the original illustrations as a starting point to explore the narrative and decorative possibilities of re-working images from the much loved children’s books.
MON 2 JULY – SATURDAY 11 AUGUST
The human face is uniquely evolved to convey information. Our faces tell the story of who we are, where we come from and even how we think and feel.
Sometimes they act under orders and sometimes they betray us, revealing our inner lives and even secrets we’d prefer stay hidden.
This series is my attempt to visually express the capricious and contradictory nature within all of us. None of us is one thing. We each play many parts and wear many faces.
ATLANTIC SUMMER SHOW
MON 13 AUGUST – SATURDAY 15 SEPTEMBER
Inspirational – Aspirational – Educational
An exciting selection of international artwork from Ribble Valley-based art curation company Atlantic Contemporary Art, curated by Graeme Windle and the Atlantic team.
THE WEB OF LIFE
MON 17 SEPTEMBER – SATURDAY 20 OCTOBER
Original weavings and wall hangings by Jaini Hadley
“Spider Woman was the deity who taught the Navajo to weave: by her use of web cords binding everything together, she also taught the connection of the land to our destiny. It is this feeling for the land that resonates with me as a weaver, joining strands to make a whole.”
