Pete Woodburn, a self-taught artist, calls Failsworth, Oldham, his creative home. His second exibition at The Market Gallery, My Art in Oils celelbrates landscapes mainly around the North West.
Pete's artistic journey ignited during his school days, revealing a unique talent for drawing. After a 30-year hiatus dedicated to life's other pursuits, he returned to his true passion: painting with oils. Pete's works from photographs he takes on his travels including from his old job as a shopping delivery driver, working across Saddleworth and Manchester from Ashton Moss.
Amidst the pandemic, Stephanie Gibbins found solace in artistry. Armed with blank greeting cards, used postage stamps, and a humble scalpel, she ventured into paper cutting and stamp collage. Nature's beauty and vibrant colors inspire her creations, such as the 'Day and Night' series, blending Clarice Cliff pottery influences with stamp collage.
'Branching Out' celebrates the charm of postage stamps, elegantly framing them or using their myriad colors, especially Queen Elizabeth II Machin definitive stamps, to craft intricate textures.
