Describe your company to us

The Atkins Gallery is managed by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council and aims to exhibit a range of artists from professionals with a national and/or international reputation to local artists and community groups. The Atkins Gallery also hosts a programme of workshops, seminars and conferences to allow different ways to access and connect with the art on show. To see what exhibitions and events are taking place in the gallery please see our events calendar.

A colourful exhibition will open on 6 Dec in Atkins Gallery ideal for brightening up wintery days. Colour in a Monochrome World is a fusion of colourful pieces from two local artists and will be a vibrant finish to the Atkins Gallery 2017 programme. Penny Andrews a textile artist and Colin Ward a Fine artist first met while studying for a Masters Degree in Fine Art in 2005 and they have exhibited work together ever since.

Penny uses her psychotherapy background as inspiration for her work looking at the way young children interpret the world and what impact childhood experiences can have on their future lives. Penny also explores how negative events can impact creativity. Colin’s work is inspired by people and nature and unusual combinations of art materials, mixing glass, ceramics, fabric and acrylic.

The two artists’ work together explores diversity and the differences found within society told through a multimedia exhibition including a large installation piece called Masks.

You can meet the artists Penny and Colin at the official opening of the exhibition on Wednesday 6 Dec 16:00-18:00 in Atkins Gallery to learn more about their inspiration and view the pieces on display.
