Having created illustrations for authors including Philip Pullman (Northern Lights), Susan Hill (Woman in Black) and Sir Andrew Motion and exhibited across the world, local artist Andy English’s fine prints are created using wood cut engravings and a Victorian press.

Lindsay Stemp’s pencil and acrylic depictions, meanwhile, use bold colour and distant settings to explore the history and culture of the region’s churches - some dating back to the Middle Ages.

The new exhibition previews on Wednesday July 11 from 6-8pm and continues until August 31.

The gallery invites subscribers to their preview evenings every month where guests have the opportunity to meet the artists and see the exhibition before opening the next day to the public.
