Woven Reindeer made by Rossendale artist, Chris Worswick part of Impluse - Animals in Motion exhibition at Valley Artists Studio on Burnley Road East in Waterfoot, Rossendale, Lancashire
Today I’ve been to photograph the opening of Impulse – Animals in Motion which is a art and literature event curated by artists Chris Worswick and Gill Fox. The Mayor of Rossendale, Councillor Amanda Robertson opened the exhibition this morning (25th May 2013) at the Valley Artists Studios in Waterfoot, Lancashire.
In this exhibition are six animal artists along with work from Valley Artist. The image above is my favorite piece of art in the room, a woven reindeer with a metal structure by Chris. It is a mixed media exhibition drawings, paintings and craft work such as above.
Along with the exhibition they are running a poetry competition open to School aged children (5- 16years) which is where the literature part of the event comes in!
Opening times for the event are Saturday 25th May 11-4pm, Sunday 26th 11-4pm, Wednesday 29th May 11-6pm, Saturday 1st June 11-5pm and Sunday 2nd June 11-5pm.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this exhibition and look forward to see what fellow artists of Rossendale get up to! Who knows, I may be exhibiting with them soon!
