New in The Box

Local Artist Aaron Pearce will be exhibiting three new paintings, in the small display box in the in-door block on Pennington Flash Country Park, throughout March and April. Here is the exhibition information, Ni ten ichi ryu, Aaron Pearce.   For my current art work I am exploring the idea of painting on reclaimed plywood board.   In September 2016 I was fortunate enough to acquire 3 sheets of perfectly weathered and moldy plywood boards from the vehicle compound of Tesco’s sub station at the loom retail park.   Selected...

Currently in the Box

 I’m beginning to ask artists if they would like to offer up to eight pieces of work to display in this small box, in the indoor block on Pennington Flash Country Park, Leigh over a period of time. I have just done this myself with the recent ‘About Corris, October 2016’ exhibition (scroll down for more information and also see my Facebook page @CatherineHawkinsArtist). There is space for half a side of A4 information and contact details for any artist who takes part, within the display. Anybody can offer creative work for display...

There is a new location, information and exhibition in two of the small Moving Marks display boxes.

The boxes provided an outdoor display accessible to all of creative work, initially inspired by the Flash. The project was devised by local artist Catherine Hawkins, Facebook...

‘Making a Body’

‘Making a Body’

Has been growing in my New Art Spaces Leigh studio (www.castlefieldgallery.co.uk) over recent months. After not seeing them for a while following my accident, I really liked the odd shapes and the subtlety of the wild blackberry body prints.
