BIG ART by local artists - a collection of art works brought together because they are all bigger than one metre long or high. Traditional and contemporary art in subtle and daring palettes. We dareyou not to like one if not all. Why not watch glassblowing demonstrations at 12 noon, 1.45pm and 3.00pm with Sarah & Charlie. We also do glass blowing taster sessions.
I left secondary school with GCSE's in Art and Design - having focused on Nature and Identity, I continued to base my own artwork on these areas. I'd always had an interest in portraits and animals,so I also spent time practicing with pen studying different techniques of drawing. Which is when i came across the dot's and line technique and that is where my heart was set. During late 2014 is when i finished my A Levels and started an apprenticeship in Website Design and Social Media.
Interested in the intangible, that which we feel but cannot translate. My paintings begin with feelings derived from alternative perspectives bordering on a spiritual leveland the beauty in thecolours found within nature. Working the contrasts of depth, texture & luminosity and a slightly obsessive edge, intricacy & layering. I choose to take you on a journey of the cosmos around me and the discovery of art being a spiritual experience.
I was educated at Hillfoot Hey High School and enjoyed all aspects of art but did not have any formal art training. My latest artwork, "Textured Art", is a collection of original art works featuring aunique method of applying textures and colours to create truly unique pieces. No two pieces are the same in either content or colour. I am inspired by the works of many artists and am an accomplished artist in a number of mediums including watercolour and acrylics.
A great day out! The Wickerfish art studio is situated at the hugely popular 'Cedar Farm Galleries' in Mawdesley, Lancashire. It is a purpose built studio in which Ruth and Stuart display theirartwork and run successful art courses for adults. It was in Ruth's youngest daughter Bethany who came up with the studio name after a visit to a children's art course held here at Cedar Farm. She made a wicker fish sculpture, which can be seen hanging in the studio.

Eccles Community Art Gallery first opened its doors in a longterm disused shop unit in Eccles town centre in November 2008. It started as a one woman project, but is now a thriving fully constitutednot-for-personal-profit Community Interest Group. The gallery does not receive any external funding and is staffed entirely by artists and volunteers, giving the public a superb opportunity to interact with the artists and for the artists to get direct feedback about their work.
Members of Eddisbury Artists discussed aspects of memories, nostalgia and longing as a group and used this as the starting point for producing works for the exhibition. Individuals have then been freeto interpret the theme in their own way to produce a diverse range of linked works.
