A J Callan & Lynn Wilkinson – Heartbeat Gallery – 2nd November – January 12th
This will be the largest collection of AJ’s original pieces appearing in one place to date: ‘Like any artist I feel the need to express myself through the use of imagery. This is my way of interpreting the world in which I live. It helps me make sense of what I see and what I think. Sometimes I need to depict accurately every detail of what is in front of me.

Lynn Wilkinson is an award-winning artist famous for her animal portraits which capture the imagination of the viewer.

Not my usual subject matter, but an interesting challenge…’
Ernest Edmonds: Light Logic – Site – 17th November – 2nd February

Exploring how new technologies produce new relations between artists, audiences and things, Light Logic marks the first UK solo exhibition of the artist for a decade.
