Carolyn’s love of discovering and exploring new places is reflected throughout this exhibition, as her surroundings have inspired paintings that capture scenes of locations both abroad and in the UK. Her artwork displays a combination of seascapes, landscapes and townscapes. Her favourite location is the coast; her love of this arose from her childhood in Northern Ireland.

A Force of Nature
- 19 April — 9 June 2018 *on now
The simplicity of nature is a constant source of inspiration for Michael’s paintings, capturing the shifting light, tumbling clouds, a crashing wave and the tranquillity of open spaces.
In this exhibition Michael’s aim is to capture the essence of distant view, capturing the way light interacts with the landscape and nature.
Michael likes to work from memory, giving him more freedom and expression, and the ability to work using bold open brush stokes alongside palette knife mark making, achieving rich textured paintings and creating energy and emotion.
Join Michael on Saturday 19th May 10am – 1.00pm where you will have an opportunity to talk to him about his work.

There is a story of a lifetime in many encounters. Curiosity to explore and memories captured when we’re unexpectedly faced with something challenging, or experience something different.
Jose Gonzalez Iglesias explores this relationship, building into much of his work the expression of a bond that connects memories with present experiences.
From humble foster care beginnings in Venezuela, Jose moved to Spain where in 1969, aged 9, he joined "Los Muchachos Circus” touring the world for 7 years as a circus performer.
In 2001 he moved to England to coach gymnastics in Yorkshire, got married and began to paint.
