Buxton Crescent Trust warmly invite artists and photographers to a free presentation and networking event as part of their Arts Council programme of events which celebrate Buxton’s water and the reopening of The Crescent.
The event on Wednesday 13 November from 6 till 8pm in the beautiful Victorian Pump Room opposite The Crescent will include two short presentations by photographer Dave Butcher and Buxton based artist Rebecca Clitheroe. Dave is one of the leading black and white landscape photographers in the UK. He is one of just 6 Ilford Master Darkroom Printers and has run his Dave Butcher Photography business full-time since 2004. He sells his original handmade darkroom prints worldwide as well as running photography and printing courses and giving lectures across the UK. Dave’s work has also been used in books, greetings cards, calendars and poster prints since 1999. He has written and published 6 books and had his work published in many magazines and books.
Rebecca has a degree in Graphic Design, since 2013 she has been building a collection of illustrations and prints of iconic buildings and landmarks. Each one is steeped in history, and each has a story to tell. Through her research and collection of visual historical references, Rebecca created the ‘Hidden Histories’ concept. Faced with the challenge of not only producing an accurate artwork of each building she set herself the task of ‘building in’ the story of its history too. Her latest venture is a bespoke wallpaper business in partnership with a Manchester based repro company.
Following the presentations there will be chance to network and meet other artists and photographers, share ideas, plans and opportunities.
