In Gallery 1 the Eddisbury Artists are exhibiting their exhibition called ‘Another perspective’. Perspective appears throughout our world. A walk along any High Street reveals the diminishing lines of architecture reaching for a vanishing point in the distance. Perspective can be shown using relative size, line, form, tone and colour management.
Another perspective may be an alternative view, viewpoint, point of view, perception or proportion. Abstract concepts are by their nature an exercise in representing another perspective.
Of course, when you view the exhibition you will bring your own interpretation to the artist’s work. This will allow you to engage with yet – ‘Another Perspective.’
‘The secret life of trees and other tales’ is the title of the exhibition by Brigitte Watkinson in Gallery 2. Through this series she aims to visualise the personalities, thoughts and feelings that trees suggest through their shapes and surroundings. Having progressed through slightly different styles of visualisation, she is now attempting to strip back as much as possible and simplify her paintings, allowing her to focus more on the trees’ stories by means of colour and shape within their composition in the landscape.
In Gallery 3 there is a retrospective exhibition of David Nolan’s work. David was born in Liverpool in 1942 where he grew up and went to Liverpool art school after which he began working in the printing industry as a lithographic artist/ retoucher. After moving to Frodsham he was a founder member of the Eddisbury artists and displayed his paintings with the group in exhibitions which took place in various locations around Cheshire and the North West. Sadly he died in 2000 at the age of 58 years.
Tracey Mckenna has been tracing the coastline of Anglesey, Dee Estuary, Wirral Peninsular, Cornwall, Brittany and the Vendee all ‘en plain air’. Studies in oil and acrylic are displayed in the Link Gallery.
