‘Drawn In’, Turnpike Gallery, 2nd April-11th June

I was invited to exhibit at the Turnpike Gallery in the solo show ‘Terra Incognita’ in 1996. This opportunity, along with a beautiful catalogue really helped my career, and its been great to renew my acquaintance with the gallery and its new creative director, Martyn Lucas.

‘Presenting a rich mix of drawings and works on paper, ‘Drawn In’ celebrates half a century of the visual arts within Leigh’s inspiring Turnpike Centre and points towards many years to come of art and culture being made, shared and celebrated with our communities.


50 works are included in the show by artists who have been here before. We are grateful to the many individuals who responded so positively to the invitation of being part of this exhibition, and to Flowers Gallery; Kirklees Collection: Huddersfield Art Gallery; Collect Art; Parafin Gallery; The Lowry Collection, Salford and Wigan Council for their generosity in lending artworks.’

The exhibition runs until 11th June and is open Tuesday to Saturday 10.00am – 4.00pm
