Photo Gallery: A Welsh Connection, Contemporary Six Gallery, Manchester
A Welsh Connection, a new exhibition launching at Contemporary Six, celebrates the strong affinity that people from the North West have with North Wales. The exhibition of 35 paintings, capturing coastlines and harbours, illustrates Manchester-born artist Anne Aspinall, skill in depicting reflections, light, and movement.
Aspinall, who now lives in Macclesfield, says: “I have always loved that North Wales hides its best places and keeps them a secret. If you are open to its charms, it’s a place that gradually seeps into your being. Whenever I go there, I have that feeling of going home.”
Contemporary Six owner Alex Reuben said: “Anne is one of the most technically gifted painters in the North West, and this exhibition is an opportunity to see many of her beautiful works. Her landscapes appeal to all kinds of art-lovers, and they will make you love the Welsh coast and countryside as much as she does.”
Anne Aspinall was born in Didsbury in 1949. Having trained at Manchester College of Art & Design, Aspinall’s work has been exhibited across the UK and internationally, and can be found in collections in Europe, the United States and Australia.
