It was the preview of the Vernon Mill Artist's exhibition 'The Bigger Picture' last night, at Stockport Art Gallery.
Stockport Art Gallery is a building that is part war memorial and part art gallery. The memorial is downstairs. After the
First World War the people in Stockport wanted their memorial to the men who had given their lives to be something special and chose to have an art gallery, so that they could be inspired by art as well as remember the dead.
This exhibition does
just that; The paintings look spectacular. It is really pleasing to see our work hung in a large well lit space where it can be properly appreciated. There is a really exciting mix of styles and the exhibition has been hung really well by Vernon Mill Artists,
Trisha Rainey Edwards and Lynne Tracey, so paintings are grouped appropriately in terms of colour combinations or subject matter. Ronnie Lai Tak''s ceramic sculptures also looked spectacular.
The blog feature on this website does not really give
me chance to upload enough photos to do justice to the exhibition. I will post some more on my facebook page soon.
The exhibition is on until 5 January. So come on people in Stockport and Greater Manchester - come to the 'The Bigger Picture' and enjoy
seeing this Art Gallery being well used for what Stopfordians of yesteryear intended it to be used for!
