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 or exhibition of the week from the popular social media page. This week it’s the Mixed Autumn Exhibition at Colourfield Gallery in Poynton.
Ant says: “A group of six living artists, Helen Clapcott, Rob Pointon, Mark Sofilas, David Alderman, David Evan and Lou Moore, together with works by the late graphite artist Trevor Grimshaw (1947-2001), and a collection of original prints by the famed northern photographer Shirley Baker (1932-2014).”
