Horizons by John Wright

June 15 – August 14 2021

An idea developed during long days of lockdown – local walks in a landscape dominated by Pendle Hill and a constant presence of Blacko Tower gave time to photographic artist John Wright to organise  his thoughts and images gathered over time.

This presentation is an attempt to share a greeting with communities of Ribble Valley, linked to a tribute to Jonathan Stansfield who, over 100 years ago wanted to create a landmark tower on a hill in Blacko with the original idea being to go sufficiently high to get a view into Ribblesdale.

The material on view attempts to capture his spirit of determination through photographs,  stories and tributes gathered along the way.

A midsummer greeting to celebrate and enjoy !

John says: “The privilege of a professional life working with children of primary school age gave me the determination to acquire new skills in retirement and find ways of sharing these with others.
 
“Opportunities to follow new learning in higher education opened doors to develop ideas in a digital world.
 
A chance encounter with Julie of Gallery on the Green led to me being invited to share my work in an original way.”

Date to be determined

One of the first exhibitions staged at Gallery on the Green in 2009 featured the work of pupils at Settle Primary Schools. We have retrieved these pieces from our archives and are displaying them again. This time with an invitation for the artists, who must now be in their late teens, to return to the gallery and perhaps replace their original contribution with a new work or a photograph of themselves with the original.
