Clouds and Claws Exhibition
Tuesday 26 May to Sunday 7 JuneArtists Diane Bailey and Alison Tyldesley are looking forward to exhibiting their work after having to cancel in April. Their show is our first step back into the gallery and to help you get to know the artists and their work we have put filmed interviews, along with plenty of information and images on our website. The exhibition itself will be in the gallery, and we hope to be able to open the doors to visitors in a limited way after the 1st June. Until then, why not make a detour on your daily walk and enjoy their vibrant wildlife and landscape work through our windows.
Diane's wildlife paintings sizzle with colour and create a close sense of connection with the creatures she depicts - which range from rabbits and rats to polar bears and monitor lizards - and most of which she has met in real life!
Alison's dreamy landscapes enfold you in colour and remind you of mountains, moors, sand dunes or lakesides. At a time when being outdoors has even more significance than usual, these paintings bring a real sense of joy.
