Saturday 21 May – Saturday 2 July

An exciting new exhibition ‘Within Elements’ opens at Foxlowe Arts Centre on 21 May 2016. This exhibition brings together the earth and air of painter Tracy Barlow’s mountain landscapes with the water and sunlight of Michela Griffith’s photographs of the River Dove. Glass by Jane Charles and sculpture by Simon Manby will also be on display.

Michela Griffith’s images reveal the beauty and diversity of water in motion, and its ever-changing interaction with light, land and season. Much of her inspiration is drawn from the area around the River Dove near her home in Longnor in the Peak District National Park.



Walking in wild and remote areas, particularly mountains and moorlands, provides a constant source of material for Tracy Barlow. Her monochrome works in oils and charcoal depict the transient and atmospheric qualities of these natural landscape.

The exhibition will also feature glass by Jane Charles inspired by the bright forms and colours of the sea and figurative sculpture by Simon Manby modelled in clay for casting in bronze.
