The last chance to come to the Whitaker and see the amazing work of Colin Binns, on display in our landing gallery. Colin will be here to meet you and discuss his work, and be on hand should you wish to make any last minute purchases of his beautiful artwork.
Print Mechanicals is a group exhibition featuring Andrew and Sara Kulman, Andrzej Klimowski, Chris Shaw, Dan Fern, David R Newton, Mack Manning, Paula Newton and Skye Shadowlight. Works are assembled via print or collage methods, reflecting individual thematic approaches. Narrative is present, sometimes oblique, sometimes direct.
If you happened to have missed our opening of current exhibition 'Emerging Figures' (attended by a record turnout) then we are delighted to tell you that Scott will be returning to the Whitaker once more for a more intimate discussion about his work and his journey so far as an artist. A FREE event with limited availability.
In this amazing exhibition Scott explores a new approach to his work, drawing on his studies of the great masters he previously focused on the figure before tending to the background. Here, following his passion, Scott has experimented on manipulating the background until something happens, letting the results unfold and the abstract dictating a figure within.
Sheila Tilmouth’s art is an interpretive response to the natural world. Her new exhibition ‘Life in the Attic’ is a journey through the store of forgotten creatures housed out of sight in the upper rooms of the Whitaker Museum and brought to life through paintings, prints, drawings and photographs.
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.

Many thanks to Terry Mulligan for his contribution to this exhibition, a long term collector of Mike’s work he felt passionately that people should see this wonderful art.
