Exhibitions & Events

Accent on Black & White

18 April-17 May

As the name suggests this is an exhibition where the emphasis is on the tonal qualities of a work, rather than on colour. Various media are encouraged, such as pencil, pastels, conte, ink - in fact anything that will help the artist focus on these important qualities.

We have had wonderful works reflecting these qualities in many of our exhibitions, and the aim of this exhibition is to bring such works together, to explore their versatility through the subtlety of tone, without the distractions that colour can bring, and so create their own unique mood.
