Exhibition: Norman Ackroyd – Distant Islands

Location: North House Gallery, Manningtree, Essex

Date: Until 25th February 2017

Details: Norman Ackroyd is drawn to the islands surrounding the coast of the British Isles. He seeks out and researches unfamiliar ones and returns to favourites such as St Kilda and the Skelligs. Every year his sketches and watercolours are distilled back in the studio into a collection of etchings and a number of larger etchings. Skellig Revisited and The Barra Isles are the most recent collections and will be shown with the larger works from the same period and a selection of rare vintage pieces from two to three decades ago.
