Every Thursday morning the Whitaker is home to a local art group who over their sessions explore the local area reproducing what they see in a variety of different media. As part of the 2018 Rossendale Art Trail we are delighted to exhibit a selection of the work they have produced whilst being at the Whitaker.
The sessions are sometimes taught with invited artists leading the group to experiment and develop their skills, or within a workshop setting where they encourage each other with an open mind, using watercolour, pastels, acrylics and much more.
The exhibition will be on display in our landing gallery, and is a shining example of how with the right support and encouraging environment you can turn your interest in the arts into a hobby and a collection of work to be proud of and exhibit within the community.
The exhibition is on now and will run until Sunday December 2nd.
