An eclectic exhibition of work by five local artists using different media. Colour, Line and Thread is now a well-established feature of the Town Mill’s schedule, and this year sees its welcome return after a year’s absence.
Hilary Buckley’s love of colour and pattern comes through in her vibrant paintings highlighting the shapes and contours of the local landscape, a sharp contrast to Philip Winstone’s cool and subtle coastal scenes with their emphasis on texture and palette. Textile artist, Sue Calder, enjoys drawing with thread in her small hand-stitched pieces, and manipulating colour variation using fabric in her patchwork quilts, while Pete Hackett’s off-the-wall photography and sculpture always intrigue the viewer. John Calder is known for his iconic land art, often charred to add marks of contrast and texture, and he is now exploring other marking techniques including printing.
Open daily 10-5pm, free admission
