As winter begins to thaw, the gallery excitedly looks forward to a bright spring ahead. This month the gallery received a magnificent collection of new artwork, including an inspiring new painting by Edward Hersey. A divergence from his signature compositions of barns and farmyard scenes, ‘Innominate Tarn, The Lake District’ pays breath taking homage to the place where the ashes of famed fellwalker, author and illustrator Alfred Wainwright came to rest. Certainly a conversation piece for Hersey’s devout collectors, this incredible painting serves as inarguable evidence of Hersey’s extensive accomplishment as an artist.
The gallery is also delighted to announce the upcoming Spring Exhibition. Inspired by the spectacle and experience of spring, the exhibition seeks to capture and recreate the refreshing pleasures of the season as life bursts forth anew. Featuring work from some of the gallery’s most popular artists, the exhibition brings together an eclectic compilation of both traditional and contemporary original paintings sure to please a variety of tastes. The exhibition opens Saturday, the 2nd of April, and run until Sunday, the 17th of April.
This month the gallery received new work by Gordon Lees, Raymond Campbell, Clare Haley, Jacqueline Stanhope, Terry Evans, Stephen Hawkins, Amanda Jackson, Alan Smith, Jay Nottingham, Andrew Grant Kurtis, Les Spence, and Stephen Park. There is quite a selection, so do take a look at our Recently Acquired page to view the new collection.
We send you our best, and look forward to seeing you soon.
