When: 29/11/2013 - 20/01/2014
A cultural crawl between The Gallery At Bank Quay House and Warrington Museum & Art Gallery takes place with an opening of two new exciting exhibitions celebrating the talent of local artists on Friday 29 November.
A preview of LifeOnLife, an exhibition featuring drawing and paintings produced by participants in the life drawing classes which take place at Pyramid every Monday, will start at 5pm at The Gallery At Bank Quay House.
For beginners to accomplished artists, the workshops provide an opportunity to learn or practise the essential skills of observation drawing. The human figure offers every challenge - line, shape, tone, colour, perspective and composition. Life drawing has traditionally been the cornerstone of any art training.
The cultural crawl then moves to Warrington Museum & Gallery at 6pm where Reflections…onto through and beyond, an exhibition by local artist Colin Grimes, opens. Colin has created a series of stunning and cleverly engaging paintings which take you on a journey beyond the reflections on Lymm’s shop windows; some of which have become archives as the businesses change hands. Colin was keen to display his painting in the gallery as a virtual walk through Lymm Village. There is also a parallel series of paintings reflecting life in other countries where people are using public transport. The exhibition is kindly supported by Richard Brown Wealth Management Ltd. and continues until 22 February 2014.
Come and join us to see two great exhibitions in one evening! Light refreshments will also be available.
Artist Julie Scott said:
“There are very few life drawing classes in the north west, so we are very fortunate to have classes at Pyramid arts centre. We also feel lucky and privileged to have the opportunity to be part of an exhibition at The Gallery At Bank Quay House. The exhibition illustrates what an amazingly diverse group of creative people are involved in life drawing in Warrington. It's a fantastic mix of people who inspire each other and always welcome new members”.
Artist Colin Grimes said:
“I am delighted to be able to exhibit my series of Lymm paintings at the Warrington Museum & Art Gallery. The layers of overlapping images, seen through the shop windows, reflect and celebrate village life. The ordinary becomes extraordinary”.
