From Saturday 28th March to Sunday 26th April > “Pennine Painters” > by Diana Terry and Friends > in the community gallery > admission free

This exhibition opens with a preview party at 2 pm on Saturday 28th March when you can also meet the artist/s.

Born in Manchester living in the Pennines
Diana’s paintings and prints encourage viewers to look beyond the brushstrokes, considering the narrative between humanity and the environment. The artist’s background in ceramics helps to inform the vibrant textured surfaces that resonate with the land, evoking the deep geological memories ingrained in the rocks, hills and dales of the Pennines.
Her current work starts with walking and memorising being in wild places and the experiences of being in the outdoors. She captures these places on site observing and drawing. Working quickly means that these sketches have an immediacy which she carries on into the studio.
She paints primarily in oil but combine this with a variety of other media such as gesso, mediums, inks and sometimes collage elements. She enjoys the process of developing areas as they emerge, rubbing back and building up, scratching into the surface and working with tools beyond the brushes, from palette knives and sponges to drawing implements, creating diversity in the mark-making.
Her work is in very popular having sold out at several solo shows. She is represented in both private and public collections in the UK, USA. and New Zealand. She has exhibited in London, Manchester and Scotland.  Her studio is in a Victorian cotton mill in the Pennines. OL5 9RR

Some of Diana’s Friday  art group’s work in her studio.
