Eric Gaskell exhibition
The Art of Eric Gaskell
The National Waterways Museum at Ellesmere Port is playing host to an atmospheric exhibition of linocut art by celebrated canal artist Eric Gaskell.
The show - running until July 31 - features works looking at canal-based images; some created more than once using different colour sets and print techniques. There are also some moody black and white prints.
Eric Gaskell says: "The eddying waters, the still water, the rain-peppered surfaces. The multi-storey, the warehouse, the cottage and the boatyard. The barge, the boat, the lock-gate, the keel and the ropework. All these things and more keep me returning to the canal as a continuing source of inspiration to create figurative and abstract image."
The official CRT poet laureate, Jo Bell, will be showing a number of her poems alongside Eric Gaskell's prints.
