An Exhibition by Carry Akroyd 

At the core of this exhibition are 16 hand-drawn lithographs that incorporate words from poems by John Clare, bringing the 19thcentury poet’s words to the present day. 

Words and images express a concern and fascination about the natural world. 

Carry Akroyd has for many years maintained, alongside other painting and printmaking, a vein of work relating to the poet whose work has a particular relevance for today. It is a connection she has returned to many times; her earlier Clare-related images were published in a large format book in 2009, and the lithograph series are included in her latest book published in 2017.

The works on display themselves are not to be sold, but unframed works can be ordered and sent by post.
