Ashbourne Festival Fringe Event

An exhibition of alternative work by our artists in the Summer Exhibition from Saturday June 18th at 10:00-4:00pm until the exhibition ends on July 2nd.

Local sculptor Ian Palmer‘s Working Men Cycle was inspired by photos from the early 1900s of family members and friends in the Black Country. He creates his copper and ceramic figures using the raku firing method.

Versatile Buxton artist Louise Jannetta charms with her clever use of colour and creating interesting  textures in her range of paintings, collagraphs and prints.

Paul Freeman, new to our stable of artists, has made his mark with his beautiful, atmospheric landscapes inspired by his native Yorkshire landscape.

We are excited to include two newcomers, Wedgwood Steventon whose work combines photography, painting and collage and Bethan Nadin, PDA Young Emerging Artist Award Winner 2021.

A selection of our NEW ARTISTS will also be on display at the Courtney Gallery during the month of June: Naïve artist Joanna Powell, water colourist Brian Robinson and the delightful flower art of Michèle Snape.

With NEW pointillist landscapes by Mark Langley, unusual watercolour and mixed media pieces by Sue Lewis-Blake, ceramic landscapes by Zoë Marsh and framed prints of local beauty spots by Sue Prince
