Time: -

Location: Haworth Art Gallery, Manchester Road, BB5 2JS

John Chapman is a well-known local artist whose paintings are unashamedly nostalgic and include two views of Accrington town centre of the 1950s.

In contrast we have Sheryl Roberts, an abstract artist directly inspired by the changing chaotic skies.

Joanne Glasgow predominantly paints outdoors 'plein air' and her work includes views of the canals and Towneley Hall through the seasons.

Installation artist, Yolande Baxendale, has paid homage to Hyndburn, with three installations, Sand to Glass, celebrating the Tiffany glass collection, Cotton to Cloth, reflecting our industrial heritage and People to Poppies, a symbolic commemoration of the Accrington Pals.

In addition, along the Bell corridor, with have a body of work from artist Marguerite Heywood, which explores the functional everyday urban landscape, seen by many working people.
