'CREATED' Exhibition kicks off 2012 at Lancaster's Arteria with Gallery 23

"CREATED" is a collection of works combining the artistic talents of the Art and Craft Guild of Lancashire plus other selected independent artists and makers.

Lancasters Arteria with Gallery 23 opens 2012 with an inspiring and sensational exhibition of local art and design.

CREATED is a collection of works combining the artistic talents of the Art and Craft Guild of Lancashire plus other selected independent artists and makers.

Jane Richardson, Managing Director and owner of Gallery 23 enthuses; We are delighted to once again host the Art and Craft Guild of Lancashire as they exhibit what we believe to be their best showcase yet! It is a pleasure to support this highly skilled group of artists that hold a fabulous reputation for producing such a diverse array of works

Amongst the independent artists taking part is Hannah Frank who studied at the Glasgow School of Art in the 1920s, exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy and was awarded posthumous honorary doctorate by the University of Glasgow for services to art. The late artist is being represented by her niece, Fiona Frank who lives in Lancaster.

Jane explains; To have the work of such a credible and prolific artist is truly inspiring for us as a gallery and we have no doubt that visitors will find her collection both intriguing and enchanting. We hold a lot of respect for Hannah and indeed her niece Fiona who is working so hard to keep her legacy alive

CREATED works as an acknowledgement, a credit and a reminder, as to just how talented North West artist community is and also, the wealth of individual creatives we have in Lancaster alone.

Jane concludes; It never ceases to amaze and inspire us to see the amount of supremely talented artists and makers we have on our doorstep. We do hope that visitors to our Brock Street gallery will enjoy viewing both the established and newly exhibited works.

With an eclectic mix of paintings, limited edition prints, photography, mixed media wall art, jewellery, ceramics, sculpture and textiles it is evident that what Gallery 23 has CREATED is indeed a feast for the eyes!

The exhibition runs from 11th January through to 24th March 2012 and is open Monday to Friday 10am-5pm and Saturdays 9.30-5.30pm.
