Prospect Studios

137-141 Burnley Road East, Waterfoot, Rossendale, BB4 9DF

Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September 10.30am – 5.00pm

I’m working towards a new exhibition at Clark Art in Hale – a joint show with Adolphe Valette (1876-1942 ), arguably the grandfather of the Northern Art school, and the man who imported Impressionism to Manchester through his role as tutor at the Manchester School of Art where he taught L.S.Lowry. The exhibition will complement a survey of Valette’s work at the Lowry in Salford: “Adolphe Valette: A Pioneer of Impressionism in Manchester 15th October-29th January 2011″.

Provisional date for the exhibition at Clark Art is 20th October 2011. I’ll post more details as soon as I have them.
