Language of Paint at the Atkinson Gallery invites you to take an epic exploration into the world of colour. We bring together two artists, Iain Andrews and Richard Kenton Webb, whose practices are steeped in colour and rooted in the romantic and metaphysical traditions.
Albert Irvin OBE originally showed at the Atkinson Gallery in 1996 and now in his 92nd year his work continues to broadly reflect his life’s journey, punctuated by the names of streets, districts, people and places that he encounters.
Following on from the huge success of Millfield’s 23rd Summer Show, this year’s exhibition will again feature a diverse range of contemporary works which celebrate the passion and energy of local artists.
Proudly maintaining its ethos of promoting the next generation of artists, the Atkinson Gallery presents the annual MA & Other Post Graduates contemporary art show. Showcasing the work of students who express particularly fresh, innovative ideas, the exhibition reflects the talent and wide range of work being produced in art schools today.
