Painting the North: Barmouth, Two Girls, Anne Aspinall
In the latest instalment of Painting the North, Ant Cosgrove, the man behind The Northern Art Page on Facebook, shares striking works of art, sketches and drawings from around The North of England. As the weeks progress, Ant will bring you his image of the week from the popular social media page. This week it’s Anne Aspinall’s Barmouth, Two Girls.
Ant says: “A new exhibition is launching at Contemporary Six Gallery in Manchester, celebrating and reaffirming the strong affinity that people from the North West have with North Wales. The show features 37 paintings, capturing coastlines and harbours and illustrating Manchester-born artist Anne Aspinall’s skill in depicting reflections, light, and movement in landscape.”
