Head to the Heritage Gallery at Cargo Fleet Lane to view the latest exhibition from artist, Carol Shaw.
Reflecting on the exhibition, Carol said; “I have lived in the North East of England all my life and the diverse landscape has had a profound impact on my art.
“I love painting wildlife and the local area has offered a wide range of animal life to paint and study; from the wild Yorkshire moors with its hares, to the foxes in Guisborough walkways, right down to the coastal beach donkeys. They are all my go to subjects.
“I am a qualified art teacher and I have been lucky to work with children and develop their artistic skills. I am now concentrating on my own art and have been enjoying developing different media as I concentrate on my own art practice.
“As a “people watcher”, I enjoy the interaction between people, especially in social environments, hence my cafe paintings. I strive to achieve the emotional connection between people and their pets through my paintings trying to capture emotion and the bond between.”
