Caroline Johnson and Alastair Price are both Rossendale-based Fine Art graduates and have been a creative team for over twenty-seven years.
They met at the University of Central Lancashire, where Caroline was a life model and Alastair wasn't. Between 1993 and 2012 they lived in rural Brittany, making public art while pursuing their own painting and music.
Alastair is an artist and guitarist, playing in the band Cacophany Arkestra and other music projects. Caroline's recent large drawings embrace the ideas around fashion, customs and celebration, and she is currently involved as a documentary artist at Maggie's Centre, a Manchester-based organisation which provides free practical, social and emotional support to people with cancer and their family and friends.
Both artists work autobiographically, drawing on the rich seam of personal history, present experience and their northern roots.
There will be a chance to Meet the Artists on Saturday 17 February at 2pm; enjoy a glass of complimentary wine and join Caroline and Alastair as they introduce their exhibition.
