Charcoal and Chalk

A new exhibition at Buxton Museum by artist Clare Allan is getting a lot of attention. Although her prints explore the grey rain-drenched streets of northern cities like Manchester, Stockport, Blackpool and her home town, New Mills, there is a vibrancy and movement to the places and characters therein. Her choice of perspective invites you in to the hilly, winding roads and creates a sense that there is something going on; a hint of a story. They are undeniably seductive. You have until Saturday 18 October to see Charcoal and Chalk for yourself. If you can’t make it to Buxton, then Clare has a really good website
