Fine art exhibition at the Atkins Gallery

Published Friday, 04 September 2015

A GROUP of mature fine art students will be presenting a contemporary collection of prints, painting, sculpture and digital works at Hinckley’s Atkins Gallery this month.

The group's exhibition, entitled "Counterpoint", will open at the gallery on 19 September for a three week run, and takes its inspiration from the musical term counterpoint. 

The group have adopted it to enable each artist to explore how separate and independent elements can be brought together to achieve cohesive and thought-provoking artworks. Then as a collective, their diverse methods combine and contrast to present work that invites the viewer to consider their own responses to what is usually a musical term.

As part of the exhibition, the group will give a talk about it on Wednesday 23 September at 2pm. They will also give a lino print demonstration on Tuesday 6 October at 2pm.

Business Centre Principal Officer Rebecca Wilbur said: ”I am looking forward to hosting this unique and diverse show in the Atkins Gallery and interacting with the group and gallery visitors through the exhibition activities. The group prove it's never too late to learn new skills and change what you want to do with your life.”
