Blog Week 26

croston artist michael ashcroftWith football fever gripping the nation we are pleased that our artists are still out and about finding new subject matter and producing some of their best work.

We reported only a few weeks ago that Michael Ashcroft had been painting the Heskin landscape just outside the gallery and we are pleased to say that he has now completed the painting and it is now framed and hanging beautifully in the gallery.

Do call in on one of these beautiful sunny Lancashire days and take a look at the painting in person and enjoy the landscape that inspired it.

New from Philip Gray

Philip Gray’s latest offering is also just in the gallery this week but unfortunately enjoying this landscape in person is not so easy.  This magnificent original oil painting was inspired by Philip’s expedition to the Himalayas, just one of his extreme art expeditions that have culminated in such beautiful artwork.

As Philip’s most popular subject matter in the gallery, we expect this will attract a whole host of admirers so do come and enjoy it if possible while it is still on show.

New from Geoffrey Key

It was also our great honour to visit Salford artist Geoffrey Key this week, a great favourite amongst our collectors and those with long term value in mind.

The visit allowed us to acquire two fabulous new oil paintings that will enhance collections for many decades and with one already finding a new home, we hope you can enjoy the other painting.
