Towneley Hall ‘Impressions’ exhibition 2020

Prospect Printmakers’ exhibition ‘Impressions’ opened at Towneley Hall in Burnley this year, delayed by Covid-19. Printmakers produced work inspired by Towneley Hall Historic House, Art Gallery and Museum, and the surrounding parklands. Artist Carolyn Murphy’s linocut ‘That Window’ responds to the statue in the window of one of the main galleries.

The exhibition, organised by Alan Birch with the curator, includes a wide range of printmaking techniques. Artists visited Towneley Hall over a period of months to develop unique and often quirky work.

The exhibition runs from 19th September 2020 until 19th January 2021, however for much of this period, the exhibition has been only open to booked visitors, or indeed closed, given government restrictions. A virtual tour of the Main Gallery and Temporary Exhibition Galleries can be viewed here.

Other work in the show included Carolyn’s ‘Serenity’ and ‘Halo’ linocuts.
