Art exhibition at Junction in Goole, until August 18
10:31am Thursday 9th August 2012 in Exhibitions
THE latest Junction exhibition in Goole turns the spotlight on local East Yorkshire artists until August 18.
Darren Barnett’s work is drawn in pencil then scanned into a computer where it is digitally coloured.
“It’s a process that can take many hours but the end results are very rewarding,” says Darren, who displays his work on Deviant Art and Facebook and has started taking commissions, as well as illustrating the characters and front cover for The Gorry Brothers, an e-novel by Doncaster author Darrich72.
Following up last year’s solo exhibition, Heather Burton’s multi-media work is back at Junction this summer. Painting in her spare time, she works mainly in oils, oil pastels and graphite/charcoal, constantly exploring the impact of light, colour and texture in both figurative and landscape pieces.
Louie Broadhead enjoys the freedoms of painting. Primarily a portrait artist, he strives to give his work the same dramatic flare as Botticelli, Michelangelo and Titian, but in a new 21st century style that allows for abstract forms and emphasis on colour.
Louie paints mainly in gouache, watercolour and acrylics but has experimented with using found materials in his work to give objects new life and to create different textures.
Jennifer Cawkwell was born in Beverley in 1992 and grew up in the countryside of Goole Fields which she enjoyed exploring, in particular the wildlife and animals. She produces semi-abstract pieces using acrylics and mixed media that convey her personal history of East Riding landscapes.
Jenny Elliott studied at York School of Art and Cardiff College of Art and returned to Yorkshire in the late 1980s after working on community arts projects in inner-city Cardiff.
She had a 20-year hiatus from painting, but began to paint again when inspired by the countryside, wild animals and birds of the East Riding.
Junction’s gallery space is open from 9am to 5pm on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 9am to 7.30pm, Wednesday to Saturday. Admission is free; work is for sale.
