During the month of March, Karl Mather of the Mather Gallery is opening up his gallery space to host an ‘artist in residence’ event. This established gallery in Rawtenstall will host the work of Paddy Campbell, a landscape artist from the Rossendale Valley.
Artist, Paddy Campbell came to live and paint in Rossendale in 2015 in order to capture the rugged East Pennines hills. Over the last couple of years, he has developed his robust style of oil painting into bright and exuberant paintings of our valley. Since arriving he has captured the rugged beauty of the hills in his dynamic oil painting, watercolours and acrylics with a good deal of success and his paintings are attracting a good following. This collection of paintings is rural in nature, gathered from the countryside directly by a painter capable of capturing the rugged drama of the Pennine hills and hewn from wonderful walks on the tops in all weathers.
“Winter Sun peeping over the Pennine Hills through a watery Sky create an image of beauty reserved for those willing to venture out of the town limits, away from the sodium light”
“Silent and cold, the whoosh of turbine, first light and the barking of farm dogs four miles away”
Paddy Campbell will be at hand at The Mather Gallery for two weeks from 11th March within the usual gallery hours ‘to man the fort’ to discuss his work and introduce you to the gallery’s collection of national and international art works.
You will find the Mather Gallery at 28 Bury Road | Queens Square, Rawtenstall, Rossendale BB4 6AA, England. Phone Number 01706 561430. (Open wed to Sat, 11am to 5pm), or you can contact Paddy Campbell at email@example.com
