A major exhibition is set to hit The Station in Richmond starting this Saturday.
With These Hands and Eyes by arts collective Take 8 showcases the work of some of the region’s biggest established and emerging artists.
These include Cluff the cartoonist John Longstaff, sculptor Alistair Brookes, who is famed for his raku-fired working-men themed figures of shepherds and miners, painter and printmaker John Degnan, Ian Short, photographer and tutor, Beverley Haines, digital print artist, Kathy Pike, raku animal sculptor, Terry Harrington, Mouseman-trained furniture maker and Sue Dewhurst, painter of barns and ‘Owd Lasses.
This story continues after the adverts:
Beverley Haines said: “We love exhibiting at The Station and think the mixture of traditional and very new techniques hangs so well in such a wonderful setting as the Mezzanine gallery.”
Sue Dewhurst added: “Contemporary and traditional art is often not exhibited side by side these days and to get the chance to show with some of the established artists of the area is a real honour for me.
“We strangely are all drawn to similar subjects but from very different perspectives.”
The artists will be available on various days throughout the exhibition to chat to visitors and discuss techniques and ideas.
Work is available to suit all price ranges and provide some interesting Christmas gift ideas.
The exhibition runs until January 11.
