THE work of the late Glasgow Jewish artist Hannah Frank is the subject of an exhibition at a Lancaster gallery.
There has been a resurgence of interest in Hannah’s work over recent years, largely due to the efforts of Hannah’s niece, Lancaster-based Fiona Frank.
She explained how the exhibition came about: “I met Arteria with Gallery 23 proprietor, Jane Richardson, when I went into the Lancaster shop on Brock Street in July.
“I showed her our new Hannah Frank leaflet, and new range of cards we’d had made for the Harrogate Home and Gift Fair.
“I was delighted to hear that she was going to be at the fair, too, and we met up again there. The idea of the exhibition grew out of these meetings.
“Jane had the idea of producing Hannah Frank notelets, packs of six Hannah Frank images on smaller cards to complement the larger, frameable single cards that Hannah herself had printed. Jane clearly has an eye for providing what people want, because the notelets have proved very popular with the public.”
