There's still a month left to go and see my exhibition This World of Wet and of Wildness at Cartwright Hall - it doesn't end until 11th September. I have a lot of woodcuts, drawings and dioramas on show downstairs in the Cellar Gallery.
There are also some excellent exhibitions running, particularly those by Tony Bevan and David Hepher. Its been wonderful to show my work alongside internationally known artists and I was lucky enough to meet them and Gallery owner Matthew Flowers during the opening on 17th July, a delightful event complete with music by 10 Strings Duo.
Cartwright Hall is committed to supporting local artists and those with connections to Bradford by providing the opportunity to show in the Cellar Gallery. It is a small and intimate space but I was very pleasantly surprised by how well my work looks down there and I've had encouraging sales of framed work and smaller items in the shop. Many thanks to Sonja Kielty for inviting me to exhibit there.
If you are in the Yorkshire area and have never been to Cartwright Hall I can highly recommend it, not just for the experience of art but also the lovely mature park surrounding the hall, complete with boating pool and tea room.
