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.

UEFA Cup Final Manchester 2008

Late in 2007, I was asked to produce some paintings for use by UEFA for the UEFA cup final at the City of Manchester Stadium on the 14th May 2008.

3 paintings and a series of ink drawings were produced and are being used for a variety of applications: as backdrops for events, ticket design, UEFA website, press packs etc. The picture shows myself and Dennis Law, the UEFA Cup ambasador at the launch event.

Follow this link to the UEFA website.
