A NEW network of artists proud to call the Lancaster district their home are currently exhibiting their work at The Dukes.
Made in Lancaster is the name of the group and their exhibition is running in The Dukes gallery.
All the work, as well as being made locally, also reflects the area in which the artists live, so among the exhibits are a painting of the Winter Gardens in Morecambe and a witty photograph of the Queen Victoria statue in Dalton Square.
One of the most striking exhibits is a paper dress created by Carole Hunt and Lancaster’s very own WAGS (Women at the Gregson) to mark International Women’s Day.
The papier-mache, wire and silk creation features images of women who’ve inspired a cross-section of local women or made a significant impact on their lives.
Nominations were placed in suggestion boxes in Lancaster library, community centres in Skerton, Marsh and the Ridge as well as at Lancaster University and the Gregson.
