Season’s greetings and a date for your diary

Happy Christmas and best wishes for 2018!

I’m exhibiting at The Whitaker in Rawtenstall next year,  with an opening on Saturday 21st April 2018.

Formerly Rossendale Museum & Art Gallery, The Whitaker is set in a beautiful park at the centre of the Rossendale Valley, Lancashire. Having come close to closure, it is now run as a ‘not-for-profit’ community organisation and in addition to housing the gallery and museum collection, it has become a vibrant cultural centre supporting various community groups, live music, a film club and a great cafe and bar.

As part of the exhibition I’ve been putting together my own collection of small ink drawings, a sort of “Rossendale Compendium”. Mostly fauna, some flora and some significant landscapes and landmarks.

I’ve also been having fun drawing some of the objects in the collection and some of the – frankly scary – stuffed animals!

More details to follow in the New Year.
