New Art Exhibitions at Castle Park Arts Centre
11 January - 18 February 2018
Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham WA6 6SE
The exhibitions run from 11 January 2018 until 18 February 2018. The 'Meet the Artists' Open evening will be on 12 January, 7 - 9 pm, everyone welcome.

In Gallery 1 we have Art from the Square, a group of local (Merseyside) artists, many of them ex-professionals, who regularly exhibit together. This collection of recent works is an eclectic mix of subjects, styles and methods including paintings, drawings, own lino and wood prints and engravings, collages and collagraphs.

In gallery 2 Liz Evans explores themes such as 'Cheshire Landscapes' 'Celestial Spaces' and 'Still Life Subjects' and develops imaginative responses in a variety
of media.

Hazel Thompson is exhibiting in gallery 3 with her unique style of painting, classical and contemporary, her scenes are realistic, and full of atmosphere. As she paints in layers with pallet knife and brush they are textured and detailed. Multi award winner Hazel Thomson, has been working on landscapes of Cheshire and surrounding areas over the past few years. She has gained a true understanding of nature and this is reflected in her paintings.

In the Link Gallery, Dennis Rogers is showing a collection he has drawn and painted during the twenty years since he retired. Much of this has been as part of the Eddisbury Artists group. Although his work has covered most of the usual subjects he has come to be mostly interested in still life compositions in which he can investigate what happens to watercolour paint on paper and in paper. He exhibits two or three times a year including at Castle Park Arts Centre. www.castleparkarts.co.uk

New Art Exhibitions at Castle Park Arts Centre
21 February - 23 March 2018
Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham WA6 6SE
Four new exhibitions will be showing at Castle Park Arts Centre from 21 February until 26 March 2018. Our Meet the artists open evening is to be held on 23 February 2018, 7-9 pm. Free entry and refreshments, everyone welcome.

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.
