A NEW art space, based at Trinity Hub has been including in the much-loved Clitheroe Artwalk trail.

The Hub Gallery, which opened in March of this year, is a showcase for local artists and arts groups.

Well-known painter John Chapman will be exhibiting during the Artwalk event and in the weeks running up to it. His work, which covers a wide range of subjects from village scenes and seascapes, to cityscapes, farming scenes and transport, can be seen from September 30. John’s annual calendar in aid of East Lancashire Hospice will be for sale here too.

The first group to exhibit at Trinity Hub Gallery was Art4All, a charity which provides classes free of charge for adults who are disadvantaged or have special needs.

Since then, the gallery has hosted exhibitions from Sawley Art Group, Gosha Gibek and took part in the first ever Clitheroe Contemporary!

It also showcased a wonderful display of photographs from the Trinity archive collection.

Artwalk Clitheroe is a circular walking route around town that takes in six galleries.

Other venues to enjoy are the Platform Gallery, Atelier Arts, Longitude Gallery, Knowle Top Studios and The Steward’s Gallery.

Jo Troughton, a former curator, who runs the Trinity Hub Gallery, said: “Art sits so perfectly with the ethos of Trinity, and being included in such a successful event is brilliant.”

Artwalk Clitheroe will take place on Sunday, October 8 from 11am until 4pm.

Leaflets with a map of the route can be found at the Platform Gallery.
