Castle Park Arts Centre New Exhibitions
19 September - 3 November 2017
Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham WA6 6SE
Cheshire Artists celebrate 20 years of Open Studios with an exhibition in gallery one at Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham from 19 September until 3 November 2017.
Artists in Cheshire open their doors to the public from September 23rd. This is a brilliant opportunity to meet artists in an informal environment, see how they work and discuss their methods and techniques. Be inspired by their working studios and don't miss this great opportunity to purchase or commission artworks directly from the artist.
Open Studios Weekends commence Sept 23rd 2017. To find out more information and to visit artists please visit their website at: cheshireopenstudios.org.uk.
Christine Howard has an exhibition called ‘Here and There ‘ in Gallery 2. Christine is a landscape artist and hopes that you will enjoy and be inspired by what you see. She aims to capture the environmental beauty of the world that we live in – cities, countryside, woodlands, sea shores - and to record and interpret that beauty for the visual pleasure of others as well as for herself.
In Gallery 3 Janice Lazzerich is showing ‘My Journey in Colour’. Her journey as an artist /painter started with crayons in childhood and took her into advertising as a Graphic Designer, and then on to Fine Art. Her exhibition takes you on a journey through her favourite subjects - so she has painted portraits of amazing women, and the timeless portrayal of the female figure. She has a great affection for birds, horses and wildlife and loves the simple "Still Life" - so has included them all in her exhibition.
Sue Marsden is exhibiting - ‘Journeys through landscapes & books’ in our Link Gallery. As an artist working in mixed media she is most interested in texture, surface, colour and mark-making. She uses a wide variety of materials. For this exhibition she has used a range of techniques, including felt making, weaving, painting, stitching and collaging; and likes to experiment with arrangements of pattern, colour, texture, line and shape.
Everyone is welcome to attend our Open Evening on 22 September 2017 7 – 9 pm, to meet the artists and enjoy a drink while enjoying all the exhibitions.
