FOOTFALL' - Peter Cartwright - Opens at The Old Lock Up Gallery

The Old Lock Up Gallery is excited to announce the opening of Peter Cartwright's Solo Show 'FOOTFALL' on the 16th September from 2.30 - 6.30pm.  The show then continues until 4th Nov 2017.
Peter Cartwright's work spans five decades and we are delighted to be showing some stunning recent pieces of work by Peter in the gallery for our first solo show.

'FOOTFALL - a series of works, acrylic on paper, resulting from rapid site responsive drawings relating to a pathway through 'Beckett's Field'. After a long period of walking the route, collecting fruit raspberries, blackberries and in earlier years blewits - it all goes development. So the works evolving from these drawings are connecting with a complex set of issues immediate visual response to the change taking place, and inevitably charged with a choice of visual elements and a sense of temporality memory of the previous: phenomenological conflict.'

Please feel free to join us for the opening of the show this Saturday. If you are unable to do so then the gallery is open 11-5pm Thursday - Saturday and 11-4.30pm on Sundays until 4th November.
