About Exhibition ‘On the Verge’

The exhibition 'On the Verge' features works by two artists from England. Penny Hunt builds up layers of paint and cold wax to capture open landscapes of the Yorkshire Dales. Recently she got interested in painting road verges, and promote them not to be mowed to save wildlife habitat. Penny uses Wallace Seymour artist paints that are ground from local rocks in the same village where she lives.

She is joined by Northumberland ceramic artist Melanie Hopwood who makes stoneware boulder forms, often incorporating short poems by using imprinted letter. ‘On the Verge’ exhibition also celebrates autumnal palette - crossing the invisible boundaries between Autumn & Winter.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Exhibition ‘On the Verge’ are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
