**ANNOUNCEMENT* * THE WINNER OF THE “OUT & ABOUT” PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

**ANNOUNCEMENT* *  THE WINNER OF THE “OUT & ABOUT” PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION
 As you may know, to celebrate the current Arteria Gallery exhibition “OUT & ABOUT” we collaborated with Carnforth Train Station Heritage Centre to launch an on line photography competition.
 
The response has been an impressive mix of local images capturing all that we love about being where we are on the map!
 
Local photographer Nick Dagger had the very difficult task of selecting one of the shots and so we are delighted to announce that the winning photograph is:-
 
BRIAN McCABE – “AUTUMN SUNLIGHT – BEECH WOOD, TUNSTALL”
 
Judge Nick Dagger explained how he felt about the winning piece:
 
“A beautiful, technically well handled photo. The stunning warm autumnal tones and splashes of light along the floor leading up to the gate are very inviting indeed. The low defused sunlight really adds to the atmosphere of the image. It makes me want to be there, seeing the leaves fall from the trees and feel the crunch underfoot while walking towards the gate and see whats on the other side, it makes me want to be out and about!”
 
Please join us in congratulating Brian and all of those who took part in this event
 
Brian will now have his piece printed and framed and presented by our guest judge
 
The “OUT & ABOUT” exhibition at Arteria runs until Saturday October 8th and the virtual gallery produced for the competition can be viewed on either of the links below

RICHARD SHILLING (LAND ART FOR KIDS) EXHIBITOR “OUT & ABOUT” @ ARTERIA WITH GALLERY 23

My work usually consists of ephemeral sculptures made from natural materials that are gathered from the area near to where each sculpture is made. Nothing artificial is used in the sculpture, no string or glue or anything else not found in nature. The sort of materials I use include stone, pebbles, leaves, earth, wood, bracken, thorns, ice, snow, water and anything else that mother nature can provide. I make my sculptures in the beautiful places of the North West of England, near to Lancaster where I live, in Cumbria, in Yorkshire and sometimes in other places such as Scotland, the Himalaya and anywhere else I find myself.
 
Each image is captured in natural light, using normal camera equipment, standard photography techniques and have received a minimum of post-processing save for normal darkroom practices. It is important to me that my images accurately portray how each sculpture looked at the time. Each image shows real colours, real places and real sculptures exactly as they appeared when the photo was taken.
 
For me the process is all-important. Through making land art sculptures I can immerse myself in the environment, peel back the layers of what is already there, feel the elements in my core and make many new and fascinating discoveries. Since I was small I have always had a great love for nature, always wandering in the woods, fields and forests and through my art I continue to deepen my relationship with Mother Nature.
 
I am particularly interested in the seasons and cycles of nature, how things change, birth, rebirth and death, the transience of everything around us and the brevity of our existence. By using and investigating ephemeral materials from nature I hope to deepen my understanding of all these things.
 
I regularly work with children and adults of all ages and perform workshops for schools, groups and individuals and provide master classes.

JAY BIRD – EXHIBITOR “OUT & ABOUT” @ ARTERIA WITH GALLERY 23

 Soft sculptures inspired by wildlife, the shores of Morecambe Bay and a love of textiles. Using recycled fabrics and materials, each bird is hand and machine stitched and mounted on locally collected driftwood.
 
There is an essence of whimsy to the birds mixed with the contours and twists of the driftwood.
 
Jay Ingram-Seal is working as a full-time artist, mother and wife. She can be found combing the beaches of Morecambe Bay.

KIMBERLI WERNER “THE RED CORVID” EXHIBITOR “OUT & ABOUT” @ ARTERIA WITH GALLERY 23

Kimberli Werner is a North Yorkshire based multimedia artist currently concentrating on paper-craft. Her studio, The Red Corvid, features recycled card stock in every greetings card, journal and framed artwork.
 
Kimberli is self-taught in paper-cutting, and she presently specialises in wildlife and natural silhouettes. By hand cutting each layer separately, her attention to detail is elemental and provides a richly textured surface to each piece. This technique also leads to each card and artwork being truly original, unique, and contemporary. Silhouettes may look familiar, but are rendered off-beat and unconventional by the use of colour, texture, and various salvaged maps.
 
The latest addition to her line of paper-craft includes greetings cards that are printed from the original paper-cuts. The cards continue to show off the texture and layering of the original.
She is continually inspired by the rural landscapes, history, flora and fauna of North Yorkshire.
 
SHOW RUNS UNTIL 8TH OCTOBER
