Last night we hosted the announcement of the winner of the Lancashire Life Landscape Painter of the Year Award.  Lancashire Life editor Roger Borrell welcomed the three finalists, Michael Treanor, Kumar and Kate Bentley whose magnificent paintings were on show  for the announcement.  Each artist had done exceptionally well to make the final three with Kate Bentley being the eventual winner of the title with her stunning painting, Summer Storm.  The two runner up’s paintings were also beautiful compositions and are still on show in the gallery this week.

Doug Hyde Wish You Were Here

Ophelia by Kerry Darlingt0n

Those collectors who have known us for many years will remember the emergence of a young up and coming artist, Kerry Darlington, around ten years ago.  Now one of the UK’s best selling and award winning artists, North Wales artist Kerry Darlington is now hot property with limited edition prints selling out and original paintings soaring in value.

With this in mind, we were thrilled this week to be able to purchase one of her rarest and most sought after limited edition prints, Ophelia.  Ophelia is a haunting and arresting image and one of the scarcest and in demand unique editions Kerry has produced.

We have also sourced this week new original paintings by our two best selling landscape artists, Barry Hilton and Philip Gray.  A stunning panoramic mountainscape from Philip Gray is looking amazing in the gallery along with two fabulous oils from Barry Hilton.
