Although some people don't like Facebook, for various reasons, it does have several advantages. I have made new friends and am able to follow the progress of other artists I like the work of.
One of these is Liz Ackerley, who I corresponded with on Facebook and she joined my local art club. She has now moved out of the area and has a studio at Woodend Mill in Mossley. Although known as an Urban Sketcher, it is interesting to see her work develop as she experiments with new media.
At the moment, she has an exhibition at The World Peace Café in Chorlton. Sue and I attended her preview last night and were impressed with her range of work. On show are sketches of the Chorlton area, as well as some preview some new work. These are cityscapes using textured collage, inks and paint. This is a new style for her and it will be interesting to see how it develops, particularly as she is looking to work on a larger scale.
An interesting place and a fascinating exhibition, which is well worth a visit before it ends on 29th July.
