Dark Portraiture by Wynn Ryder
Oct

Dark Portraiture by Wynn Ryder

Launch morning of the exhibition by Wynn Ryder, featuring a preview of Northern Soul

Full exhibition runs Thursday 3rd - Thursday 10th October

Note from the artist:
”I can't paint. That might sound like an odd thing to say, given the work on display here but I can't, at least not traditionally anyway. Applying paint to canvas with a brush has never made any sense to me and despite my best efforts, I just can't do it. So I had to find a way of creating my own paintings my own way and I did that through the use of paint markers - water based paint in a pen. I take five colours and layer them in the same way I would if it were acrylic, frequently blending with my fingers and generally making as much mess as possible.
I'm currently working with photographer Lee Black on a series of paintings for an art book documenting the Northern soul scene. I'm very excited to be showcasing a number of pieces from that series here in their various stages of completion.”

White Light White Peak - The Live Experience

to Oct 10

White Light White Peak - The Live Experience

The award-winning playwright, photographer and poet, Simon Corble, shares an evening of his Peak experiences:
Encounters with the weather, wildlife and people; some amusing, some thought-provoking and many involving a Springer Spaniel or two. His “magic” poems are told in a conversational style, as his atmospheric, monochrome landscapes are projected onto a large screen and a soundtrack of wild recordings fill the air.
