Exhibition of Linocuts by Polly Warren
21st January to 18th March
Polly Warren’s beautifully crafted linocuts capture views of gardens, nature, places and fond memories. She says that ‘with an O-Level in Art and no formal art training, drawing the initial design for the lino block can be a struggle, but cutting the block is relaxing, mixing the inks exciting, and printing with her Hawthorn press can be breath-taking and surprising’.
Polly has had her work displayed at the Harley Gallery, Ferens Art Gallery (Hull), Doncaster Art Gallery and Museum and the Ropewalk (Barton). She also had a solo exhibition in the Spotlight Gallery at Newark Town Hall.
