The Elles Gallery 4 Gage Street, Lancaster. A Gallery run By John Elles. Although I have not been inside I believe that much of the art is created by John himself. There is an article by the Lancaster Guardian explaining his journey of painting local scenes and as a complete contrast – Celebrities Lancaster Guardian article of John Elles John has a sense of humour as he has the ‘Banksy Shredded Painting’ in the window – maybe not the £2 Million original. Also a Halloween display. John exhibited in local Galleries before staring out on his own.

Peter Scott Gallery Collection Lancaster University

“Art is meant to be lived with” 29 October – 30 November 2018 

Works from the Peter Scott Gallery Collection Lancaster University Lancaster Arts – Whats On

Irene Manton (1904 – 1988) challenged convention in her life and work. Throughout her career as a botanical scientist she remained curious about different fields of knowledge, growing a distinctive collection of artworks and antiquities. For Manton, the ‘other ways of looking’ afforded by art and music could offer surprising insights into new perspectives.

Taking its name from Manton’s words, this exhibition revisits documented situations and locations to show how she lived with her collection at home and in the workplace. With creative flair, intellectual intention and a lively sense of humour, Manton used art to enrich everyday life. “Art is meant to be lived with” opens up this idiosyncratic collection and invites you to be part of the conversations it inspires today.

Artists include: Max Ernst, Terry Frost, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, L.S. Lowry, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Winifred Nicholson, Pablo Picasso

Supported by the Peter Scott Gallery Charitable Trust.

You are warmly invited to join us at the exhibition opening on 26 October, 6-8pm.
